This was the best part of our family’s trip to New Orleans. It was so much fun to kayak in the swamp! Deb was an amazing guide. She told us all about the swamp and as a kayak racer she was perfect for helping us beginners get the hang of kayaking. The weather was a little chilly at first but turned out to be perfect with all the rowing. We knew that since it was winter we wouldn’t see much wildlife but we saw a giant white heron that hung around us for a long time and then flew away down the swamp. We all had an amazing experience. My whole family would definitely do this tour again.

Wow, the swamp was so full of life and very peaceful. Deb, the owner and tour guide, was a wonderful guide. She made sure I was comfortable the whole time. It was one of the highlights of my trip. She was funny and sweet. I highly recommend this tour.

It was wonderful way to see some of the local waterway and appreciate a different aspect of the New Orleans area. Very accommodating, knowledgeable, friendly. Such a treat to have a private tour for just 2 of us. Thank you!

Great experience! I can say that I kayaked in the swamps of Louisiana now! The girls were amazing guides and so sweet and accommodating to us. They gave lots of fun info about the area and showed us the nature around which was beautiful. Unfortunately we saw no gators since they are in hibernation but the whole thing was very serene and peaceful (:
