We pride ourselves on providing a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests. We use top-quality gear and make sure our guests are comfortable on their kayaking outing.

Fun in da Bayou

My gf came up with a great birthday gift. Weather was perfect, tour guide was very knowledgeable, the scenery was beautiful. I can’t wait to do another tour. We kayaked about 2.5 miles in, taking in all of the scenery. I’ve lived in the area on and off my entire life but never got to do anything like this. It was so much fun. Very easy going kayaks, easy to maneuver. I would highly recommend this tour company!

Highlight of my New Orleans trip

This tour was the highlight of my New Orleans trip. Very intimate group, beautiful scenery, up close and personal with the swamp and its critters. The pick up location was convenient. I've never gone kayaking before, but it is very manageable for a newbie. The company was very responsive to my last-minute booking request. Tour guide was from the area and very knowledgeable regarding its natural history. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Great Kayak Trip

We were in a very small group and our guide, Max, was extremely knowledgeable about the bayou and its wildlife. We did get to see an alligator but felt safe at all times. It was a very relaxing excursion and probably the highlight of my trip to NO. When dropping us off, Max tried to get us as close to our airbnb as he could, which we appreciated. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.

LOVED the tour in the Manchac!

LOVED the tour in the Manchac. I highly recommend. It’s beautiful, untouched, and surprisingly very close to New Orleans. Josh was great, taught us about the wildlife, trees, and geography. I’ll be back to Wild Louisiana Tours next time I’m in town.

Excellent!

We had a group of 3 with varied levels of comfort and skill- Max was friendly, knowledgeable, and kind. We had an amazing journey and learned a ton! Telling all my friends if they head your way- it’s a MUST.
