It was fantastic! Gary was a great guide. We loved the slow pace and peacefulness of kayaking. Thank you
My 20-year-old son and I thoroughly enjoyed a quiet paddle through a bayou and a swamp, and the educated, lovable, quirky Max will tell you the difference between the two. He’ll also tell you the difference in an alligator and a crocodile, as well as a beaver and a nutria. This wonderful guide is equal parts informative naturalist and funny great-uncle, who gives you any and all information you’d want on this environment, sprinkling in charming stories of his relationship with this nature. (Including a story in which his family briefly had a nutria as a pet, until the animal’s habit of eating half its weight in grass everyday— and the poop that followed — dampened the family’s enthusiasm. ) We’d both highly recommend this option over the more touristy boats that feed alligators and motor over the quiet of 1000-year-old cypresses, baby eagles and rippling waters. Especially in this anxiety- producing pandemic time. This was a true respite from all.
Truly a fun and relaxing experience! The beauty of the swamp was breathtaking.
