Intro to Stand Up Paddleboarding
This sport’s origins stem from Hawaii, however, it certainly has caught on here on the Mainland. Paddleboarding combines balance and strength to create a truly unique form of transportation and of course, recreation. We’ll give it a whirl on the waters of Bayou St. John—great for both its natural beauty and iconic New Orleans views. Cost includes transportation, leadership, and equipment.

Date: Sunday, June 10
Time: 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Cost: $30

Canoe the Bayou
Canoeing is one of the best forms of transportation in the Louisiana swampland and is now a popular form of recreation. We’ll give it a whirl on the waters of Bayou St. John. Come prepared to get a little wet and have a lot of fun. Cost includes transportation, leadership, and all equipment.

Date: Saturday, June 23
Time: 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Sunset Canoe
Join Outdoor Adventures for a paddle down the Cane Bayou at sunset. Under the sky’s gradient of bursting color, we will voyage through Southern Louisiana’s wild wetlands to Lake Pontchartrain. What’s a better way to end a weekend than with a sunset over a lake, numerous bird species, and, perhaps, an alligator or two? Cost includes transportation, equipment, and snacks!

Date: Sunday, July 8
Time: 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm
