This was exactly what I needed and my favorite part of our trip. I wished we were a little more secluded (you could hear car noise for most of the time) but it was beautiful out there on the water and the kayaking was easy. The pick-up and set-up process went smoothly. Everything was great. Our guide even dropped us off at a preferred location when it was over. Great customer service.

We did see alligators, turtles, red eared turtles, palliated woodpeckers, great blue herons, egrets and great egrets. Max has a degree in forestry and wildlife management. He’s been kayaking on the swamps for years. He showed us the different flora and told us of the invasive snails and plants. He showed us the edible water plants that sustained the native people and us their histories. This was a very fun and relaxing time. Easy kayaking. Bring water and snacks.

Our family of three thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the swamp. Max was an engaging and knowledgable tour guide and the scenery was beautiful. It was peaceful and relaxing to be on calm water.

I went kayaking with my boyfriend. Julie was our guide and we had a blast! It was one of our favorite things we did on our trip! We saw some great wildlife and it was great to get picked up a few blocks from Bourbon St.
