Local guides lead you by kayak through the historic Manchac swamp, pointing out wildlife along the way. Our guides are trained in the rich cultural history of the area, from native cultures to early exploration and logging.

Enjoy a kayak trip through the moss-covered cypress trees of Manchac on this trip through a beautiful and scenic wildlife area. You can expect to see alligators, egrets, eagles, and other swamp creatures. 

Very little experience is necessary to paddle the slow-moving bayou, making it a perfect activity for people of all ages.
