Again reservations are required, please do not drive to these locations without calling ahead as we do not transport extra kayaks or equipment for walk-ups.

Manchac Wetlands Launch
A True Swamp Just outside New Orleans
The Manchac wetlands are bordered on the east by Lake Pontchartrain. On the north, the wetlands surround Lake Maurepas and then extend towards Baton Rouge. The southern border is the high ground that parallels the Mississippi River. Interstates I 10 and I 55 slice through the wetlands mostly on elevated sections. The forested wetlands cover approximately 200 square miles where the ground is neither high and dry nor under water. Foot travel through these woods would be extremely difficult.
