Qué harás

We will explore the Maurepas Swamp by kayak from our private landing on the Petite Amite River. Our small group size average of six ensures that you get a chance to ask our local naturalist guide all the questions you want. The quiet kayaks don’t scare wildlife away and allow us to get deeper into the swamp than you would with the large-boat operators. In fact, there are no other boat or kayak tours in the area where we go, which allows for a really special experience. Learn more and see more! The Maurepas Swamp Wildlife Management Area is located halfway between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

Kayak, paddle, life jacket, and dry box provided.

We will navigate through shallow waters for two to three hours
Peacefully glide around the river bends while looking for gators and other creatures. Paddle slowly through narrow passageways surrounded by cypress and tupelo trees draped with Spanish moss.

Our kayaks are 2020 model Jackson Rivieras, which is a huge upgrade from the older models. Our maximum group size of twelve ensures that you can properly relax, avoid the crowds, and interact fully with your guide. We provide an authentic, educational tour that leaves you with a deeper understanding of what makes the ecosystems here so unique.

The Maurepas Swamp is a biodiverse 110,000-acre federally protected Wildlife Management Area

I founded an international ecotourism company after finishing law school. After operating tours around the world and growing the company for years, I decided the time was right to start offering tours in my home of Southern Louisiana. I have a depth of knowledge about wildlife, environmental protection, and travel photography. I love to help travelers connect with local people and organizations. My unique trip-building skills, environmental stewardship, and commitment to ethics are what set us apart from other tour companies.

I want to share the Louisiana that I love with you. No tour buses or giant tour boats here – we always do small groups with passionate local guides. If you want an authentic and off-the-beaten-path experience you’ve found the right place. Louisiana deserves a tour like this, and so do you.

What a wonderful, educational experience. We learned so much and had so much fun. John was an amazing tour guide, teaching us all there was to know about the environment around NOLA. I really can’t say enough good things about this experience—we would definitely do it again!

This was such a wonderful tour! The area is so peaceful—worlds apart from the French Quarter. We were lucky to see a baby alligator and two heron during the trip. Our guide Jared was perfect: always happy to give information but also content to let us explore the space. Highly recommend this experience!

We really enjoyed our time on this experience! Jared was incredibly knowledgeable, and we were able to see 4 alligators, a snake, and so much more! Highly recommended for people who really want to experience the bayou.

Was a great experience and Jon was a terrific guide. Seeing the swamp up close and enjoying nature in solitude was just we wanted.

Our kayaking tour was fantastic. Jared was a great guide and had a lot of information about the bayou and natural environment around us to share. He pointed out lots of animals and vegetation I might’ve missed otherwise. when we didn’t get a good look at a gator as we had hoped, he took us to a second spot to make sure we saw one. I appreciates that this tour doesn’t feed wildlife to draw them in, so you won’t see anyone harassing or feeding them, which makes everything we saw that much more magical. Location was easy to find, there is a decent porta potty on site. I’d definitely recommend this tour!

Really amazing tour. The guide was clearly knowledge and very friendly. It's obvious this company goes above and beyond to be sustainable and respectful towards nature which really allowed us a special experience to appreciate the beauty of the bayou.
