Night Paddle on Bayou Manchac!


Night Paddling

It’s official.  Our July night paddle will be this Saturday (the 23rd) down that delightful night paddle waterway, Bayou Manchac.

What: A relaxing 5.6-mile red-light-night paddle down Bayou Manchac.
Who: Anyone who wants to enjoy a nice night paddle.
When: Heading down the bayou at 8pm.
Where: Starting where Alligator Bayou meets Bayou Manchac (Alligator Bayou Road in Prairieville), and ending on Camp Drive in Prairieville.

If you’re coming with your own boat and want to two-car it, or if you’d like to park at the exit point and pre-shuttle, we can give you the ending address.  Shuttling back to the start after the paddle is also available with no prior commitment but perhaps slightly slower service.

To reserve a space or arrange for shuttling, contact us at 225-366-8254 or send an email.  As always, donations are graciously accepted but never obligatory.

An Adventurous Comite Expedition


Runoff. Lots of runoff.

We had been trying to do a Comite expedition for a while, but scheduling and water levels scrubbed the plans repeatedly.  Finally, everything aligned (except the forecast), so we figured we’d go on an adventure to see what issues there were and to handle as many as we could. Read more…
