Moonlight Paddle Tours


What are Louisiana swamps and bayous like at night? What sounds do you hear? What can you see? What is it like to paddle through open ponds and marshes or down a maze of bayous, with the moon overhead and surrounded by a symphony of night sounds? Every sense will be strained to absorb as much of the experience as possible. At night, swamps are alive with sounds of its inhabitants. Sometimes reflective orange-red eyes can be seen – alligators!!
