Big Easy Bayou Tour

Sara_giving_tourLasting about two hours, this tour may appeal to those looking for less of a time and athletic commitment. Great opportunity for first-time kayakers! From West Indies-style architecture of the late 1700s to Frank Lloyd Wright inspired homes, you’ll travel through time as we paddle from one charming neighborhood to the next, all the while learning the history and significance of Bayou St. John. The focus is mostly community with a hint of wildlife. In the warm season, this tour goes out during the romantic twilight hours.
