Moonlight Paddle on Cane Bayou

What are Louisiana swamps like at night? What sounds do you hear? What can you see? What is it like to paddle through open ponds and marshes or a maze of bayous, sloughs, slender lakes and rivers with the moon overhead and a symphony of night sounds surrounding you?

Paddling into the wetlands by daylight, eating at sunset and then paddling out by moonlight is a vivid experience. Every sense is alerted as the swamp comes alive with the nighttime sounds of its inhabitants.

Post Thanksgiving Family Paddle

Canoe & Trail Adventures hosts this annual outing for those who want some exercise and fresh air after overindulging on turkey and trimmings.

On the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain is a national wildlife refuge that features an assortment of marsh shrubbery and grasses, scattered ponds of assorted sizes and shapes, piney flatwoods and the shoreline of the lake itself. The refuge is very open with views from horizon to horizon, which is uncommon in forested Louisiana. Wildlife may be represented by flocks of migratory birds and raptors - hawks, falcons and harriers.

1st annual Black Friday Protest Paddle

Instead of sitting on the sidewalk in front of a box store waiting to buy something the Friday after Thanksgiving, head out with friends and family to Lake Martin to breathe in the beauty and tranquility of the Lake Martin/Cypress Island Preserve, a popular Breaux Bridge paddling spot. Pack & Paddle envisions this trip as a great way to get families together to make memories and enjoy each other's company while the rest of the world goes crazy at the mall. This event will be from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
