“Best part of our trip to Louisiana!”

Bayou Teche Experience
Attraction details
Reviewed May 4, 2014

My husband and I did the self-guided kayak tour of Bayou Teche, the canal, and beautiful Lake Martin. Bayou Teche experience was so quick to respond to our e-mails prior to our trip and really gave us the exact information we were looking for. We found Cory to be extremely personable and full of great advice, and not only about kayaking and Bayou Teche; he actually took the time to tell us about alternate driving routes for our return drive back to New Orleans, and also told us about a great local place to eat some amazing crawfish (Crawfishtown, USA)!
Renting kayaks from Bayou Teche Experience allows you to tour the bayou and lake at your own pace (much more so than taking a swamp boat tour with a bunch of other tourists!) and is an opportunity to participate in something active during your trip...plus you can get more up close and personal with the wildlife while quietly paddling through the cypress trees. My husband and I have agreed: our 'road trip' from New Orleans to Breaux Bridge to kayak Bayou Teche was the most memorable part of our Louisiana trip:)

We enjoyed a wonderful 8 hr self-guided canoe trip on the Bayou Teche! Corey Werks, the owner, has a passion for the bayou and is a wealth of information. His stories of the Bayou are something we will always remember. We always like to do active things if possible on vacation, and Bayou Teche offered many options for guided and unguided canoe and kayak experiences.

Having spent a night in the kayaking cabin (also a bnb), we took a self-guided tour along the river, canal and into Lake Martin. Cory was super helpful and knowledgeable, he gave us a map and very clear directions so we had no trouble finding our way. He also picked us up from the lake and took us to see the rookery where ibis, spoonbills and egrets were nesting - as well as pointing out a 'medium' gator sitting under a tree (6ft). A great experience, would highly recommend.

It was a great time!! Cory is owner/operator of his uprising little business. As far as Kayaking he is the only one for the area. You can do a guided tour or self guided. He is very knowledgable of the sport and the area. He assisted us in having a memorable time in the area. We would definitely come back again and would love to see all that this enthusiastic young man has accomplished with all the various water activities he has in store for the future.

We had a great time kayaking on Bayou Teche. Cory is absolutely first class guy. It was a breeze to set up the trip. The kayaks were great, Cory explained everything we needed to know, gave kayaking tips and showed the route. We went through Bayou and the canal to Lake Martin. The lake, the swamp, was just unbelievable. The alligators, turtles, birds everywhere. My kids, 11 and 16 had a blast spotting gators. Cory picked us up at the end of the trip at the lake. On the way back to the starting point Cory gave us an overview of the the history of the area and its people, as well as recommendations on local attractions. The trip on Bayou Teche and Lake Martin was a highlight of our visit in Acadia. Thanks Cory!
