Kayaking on Bayou St. John. The Bayou is home to a wide range of flora and fauna. Maybe you’ll spot a pelican swooping down for a fish, or spy the egrets, herons, ducks, loons and more. The route sweeps through residential areas with an array of architectural styles from French Colonial to lavish modern manses. Or enjoy cultural events from the serenity of the bayou.
What to bring: A hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are essential since there’s no shade on the bayou. Also wear a swimsuit or clothing you don’t mind getting and that is comfortable enough for sporting activity. You’ll want to bring a cooler and plenty of water or sports drinks to stay hydrated, and some snacks. BK will provide reusable bags to pack-out your trash. We also have protective canisters for your devices, however, note Bayou Kayaks is not responsible for your devices.
