Book it! You won't regret it. Great way to see the area outside of the city. A little history, a lot of nature. Saw alligators, turtles, frogs, birds, snakes, etc. Easy even for a beginner. Definitely recommend!

A relaxing, easy excursion into the bayou. Matt and Kevin were our guides and they were fantastic. They provided us with some education and storytelling while still offering a nice amount of time to just quietly paddle along in the water and enjoy the scenery....More
