Grab your paddles for this kayak and canoe tour of the historic Manchac swamp. This area was once home to Ruddock, a destroyed logging ghost town. The Manchac Magic kayak swamp tour is a great way to get out of the city and experience the scenic cypress swamps right outside of New Orleans. This paddle trip is a great beginner outing and all ages and skill levels are welcome to attend.
Wildlife you can expect to see include alligators, snakes, turtles, egrets, herons, eagles, and owls. We cannot guarantee wildlife spottings but the swamp has abundant wildlife activity and we see various wildlife every day. The Manchac swamp has a rich history from the Native American inhabitants, logging communities, and into the current day. Your Manchac swamp tour guide will discuss the historical significance of the area and point out evidence of the people that once lived in the area.
