Festival Acadiens Full Moon Paddle - Forgotten Atchafalaya

Join Pack & Paddle for a special edition full moon paddle at one of the most special spots for an evening paddle trip. The "Forgotten Atchafalaya" name comes from the fact that this corner of the historical Atchafalaya basin was cut off when the levees were built. This created an area unaffected by the high waters of spring that you face inside the levees. On this trip, participants will paddle through narrow twisting bayous near age-old cypress that are gnarled from centuries of wind and weather.
