We loved the paddle. Sonny was insightful in sharing lots of knowledge about the area and especially the wildlife. We were able to see some gar and a bunch of birds on our way out to the lake. It was obvious that Sonny is passionate about the area and keeping it healthy. The pace was perfect for us--it felt like we were burning off some of the many calories you consume in New Orleans while still being relaxing. Sara and Sonny both offered great tips for places to eat, drink, swim and be merry. We had bikes, so they mapped out a route for us to explore the city after our paddle. Would highly recommend this paddle and would do it again.

We loved this tour! As a native of Louisiana, Sonny knows a TON about the area and shares his cultural, environmental, and historical knowledge readily. The tour was fun and just the right amount of length so as to get a workout but not be too tiring. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting New Orleans!

We had a great time. Sonny is very knowledgeable and engaging. We covered a decent distance but never felt rushed. It was an awesome way to spend a Friday afternoon.
