The kayak adventure won “Best Kayak Eco Tour” at the Best of Louisiana Outdoors Awards in 2017. The tour takes guests on a paddle to watch the sunset over Lake Pontchartrain. After the sun sets, headlamps lead paddlers on a return trip at dusk to the sights and sounds of nature. The tour might even bring you face to face with a gator.

Reservations are $55 per person, which includes your guide, kayak, paddle, vest, drink, snack, use of headlamp, and transportation. Adult beverages are also available for purchase. Guests must call ahead to reserve a spot. Limited spaces are available.
