Very fun and I wouldn’t mind going again (2 hours included in rental but it felt like 3). Took my 7 year old who had no experience with kayaks, and she caught on quick. I was able to attach and pull her youth kayak to mine when she got tired! Life jackets are included, so no need to pay the additional $5 online for one. I didn’t know this until I arrived but they refunded me right away. You will get wet no matter how careful you are, and I would suggest bringing your own waterproof bag/container. The lid of the plastic chip container they provide kept popping off and water was getting in. I initially tried renting a kayak at City Park before coming here, but they said the water level was too low. I’m glad it was because Bayou Paddlesports ended up being an even better alternative.

Absolutely amazing! We did the night paddling under the full moon and it was so magical. Dress appropriately, it gets chilly on the water. They gave us food, beverages (non alcoholic or alcoholic), and there was live music after the paddle. Definitely recommend if youre in new Orleans during the full moon.

Awesome time! We rented 4 kayaks and 1 SUP and had a great time kayaking as a family along Bayou St John. It was super easy to rent them, the ladies at the landing were friendly, polite and very professional. Can't wait to go back.

Love Rhonda and Bayou Paddlesports! Excellent customer service. Great equipment. Very safe. Tons of fun and a great way to be in nature, see a beautiful part of the city, and relax. Very much worth it!

I would have never thought the bayou was so big. This was a fun experience very relaxing and calming worth the money and its a two hour time limit.

When my sister told me that her husband wanted them to kayak in alligator waters where our parents live in Florida, I thought he was nuts. Well if that's the case then call me a pecan because I did just that, but in NOLA (St. John's Bayou). We showed up without reservations; just a general idea of doing something outdoorsy. We didn't even know if kayaks or canoes would be available to rent. We popped over to the City Park and asked one of the attendants where we might be able to rent one near-by and were guided to this location. Plenty of kayaks were available and the price was very reasonable for a two hour float. If we're able to do it again, we'll take it out for longer. Two hours wasn't long enough to get to the Lake and back and we had more steam in the tank for an additional hour or so. The lady who helped us out was very friendly, as was her dog, who was very keen to eat the breakfast bar he sniffed in my pack.

The night paddle was very accommodating and well-run, for a very low price. The people were friendly, and had tacos and beer out for everyone paddling. The paddle is not guided, which gives you freedom to explore the parts of Bayou St. John that you choose. I will definitely be paddling with Bayou Paddlesports again!

My daughters and I recently rented kayaks from Bayou Paddlesports. It was very easy to book and pay online. All we had to do was show up and head out on the water. I've used this company several times and it's always been great! Highly recommend. Don't forget your sunscreen!

I recently rented a kayak from this business. We had a fantastic time and will definitely return many times in the future. I was able to book online on my iPhone with no problem, but also understand that there are usually availabilities for walk-ups. We rowed down the bayou for 2 very enjoyable, relaxing hours. The equipment was all in great condition. I will definitely be back to rent a kayak and also want to rent a Stand Up Paddleboard.
