Urban Kayaking

If you're one of the 90% of people who think there's nothing to do in N'Awlins except party and eat, then here's a surprise for you: Half-day urban kayaking tours take participants through the historic Bayou St. John waterway. They see all sorts of iconic New Orleans landmarks and neighborhoods while getting some low-impact exercise, along with a guide to share plenty of colorful history. Sunset paddles are available and highly recommended in warmer months. One quick note: You will get splashed. Be prepared.
