Moonlight Paddles™ & Twilight Paddles™
Please be aware these events are pre-set dates based off the moon's phase.For Twilight Tours offered on more dates with smaller group sizes please visit our Canoe and Kayak Tours section.
What are Louisiana swamps like at
night? What sounds do you hear? What can you see? What is it like to paddle
through open ponds and marshes or a maze of bayous, sloughs, small slender
lakes and rivers, with the moon overhead and surrounded by a symphony
of night sounds?
What's the difference between
a Moonlight Paddle and a Twilight Paddle? Simple, the phase of
the moon that evening. Moonlight Paddles are when the moon is at Waxing
(getting bigger) or on a full moon. Twilight Paddles are when the moon
is Waning (getting smaller). On Twilight paddles the moon is sometimes
not present which makes for much better star gazing.
