Canoe or Kayak Swamp Tour on Manchac Wetlands in Louisiana
A relaxing and easy way to enjoy the largest coastal forests in Louisiana is through paddling! Book a Canoe or Kayak Swamp Tour for as low as $65 per person for 2-3 hours tour. One of the largest coastal forests in Louisiana, the Manchac wetlands are a must see destination on any adventure in the bayou state. The extensive series of bayous, sloughs, lakes, and marshes that makeup Manchac's expansive cypress swamps allow explorers a glimpse into the forgotten world only 30 minutes outside of New Orleans. Manchac swamp is a historically significant area used by many of Louisiana's great explorers and founders. Broken pilings and abandoned shacks are all that remains of the ghost town once a thriving logging community was known as Ruddock, LA. Native Americans thrived in the swamp's constant source of natural resources, boasting a high diversity of plant life, ample supply of fish and small game animals, and the sub-tropical climate that supported life year around. Join us on a swamp adventure by canoe or kayak through historic Manchac swamp. Take a journey through a natural treasure full of life and productivity. Let the serene bayou sounds and sights relax you on your peaceful journey through a historic natural waterway and discover a new side of Louisiana.
