Night paddle this Saturday (August 22)


Night paddle this Saturday (August 22)

Red lights at night.

We’re heading out again for another amazing night paddling trip.  This time we’ll paddle Ward Creek and a bit of Bayou Manchac.

Ward Creek to Bayou Manchac begins more “in town” than our other routes, and that makes it an exceptionally interesting night paddle.  Passing under the various bridges adds a bit of visual flavor completely different than what you get with the remoteness of the special-access Spanish Lake run.  (My favorite is the I-10 bridge over Ward Creek.  Looking up from the water on a dark night, it is almost surreal.)  So, let’s have ourselves a paddle trip.

Launching: Ward Creek at South Mall Drive (off Siegen), meet to launch at 7pm.
Landing: East end of Camp Drive, Prairieville (approximately), 10:30-ish.
Length: Eight miles of easy downstream paddling on Ward Creek and Bayou Manchac.
Logistics: For pre-trip shuttling or two-car instructions, reply here, call, or email to set things up. For post-trip shuttling, no worries, we leave no one behind.

If you need a boat to join us, our fleet is standing by.  We have multiple options available, paddles and PFDs provided.  We usually even have extra lights available for your red-light-viewing pleasure.

You do not have to be a member of PaddleBR to join us for this fun event, but if you’re not a member, please consider a small optional donation ($5, perhaps) to help support PaddleBR. Or even better, get your membership in person Saturday or anytime at
