About Kayak-iti-Yat Original Kayaking Tours of New Orleans
Locally owned, family run. Capture New Orleans from a different perspective. Kayak our beautiful bayou as we guide you along our historic waterway. We'll keep with the pace of the city--nice and easy, taking in the southern scenery, hospitality and weather. We offer three tours of varying levels of physical demand and kayaking experience. Taking place on natural, but urban Bayou St. John, paddles focus on history and ecology of the area and New Orleans. Our tours cover pretty much anything and all things relevant to the waterways and the surrounding neighborhoods. Our website is loaded with information! There you can find full descriptions of each tour, directions to our launch, and even quickly reserve your tour by clicking one of the yellow "book now" buttons.

This is a great tour. We went with Sonny, who was very knowledgeable about both the history and ecology of the area. We saw tons of birds and some beautiful homes. Probably in part because there were only two of us, the tour was very...More
