Waitlist for WWNO Paddle

An special event outing exploring the Louisiana wetlands on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain.

Since 1972 Canoe and Trail guides have been leading paddles and hikes in southeast Louisiana. We are partnering with WWNO on this special event outing to get you out into the wetlands you’ve been hearing stories about on WWNO.

$40 per adult, $30 per child

Follow our guide in your own canoe or kayak down a natural bayou which feeds into Lake Pontchartrain, this bayou is the only undeveloped bayou left leading to the lake. Along the way your guide will pause to give detailed info about the bayous, swamps, and Louisiana’s wetland ecosystems.

In March wildlife around Cane Bayou often consists of egrets, herons, ospreys, eagles, alligators, turtles, snakes, frogs. We have been spotting otters more often in 2018 but they are still a rare sighting.

Reservations are required and space is limited.
