Be on the lookout for egrets!

With each quiet splash of your paddle, you'll feel your tensions melt away. Breathe in the fresh air and scent of the trees. Listen to the birds calling. Whatever worries you had...let them go. Keep an eye out for ospreys, as they are surely keeping their eyes on you! If you're really lucky, maybe you'll be able to spot them diving for fish...

Guided kayak tours are available for up to 6 people at a time. Children must be at least 5 years old. We'll provide you with a paddle, dry bag, and life jacket, but you'll need to bring water, a hat, sunscreen, and wear something you can get wet in. Shoes or sandals are required. Participants  will meet the guide at the Natchez Visitors Center at 640 S. Canal St. (by the bridge) in Natchez. You can ride with the guide or follow her to the launch site, which is a lake about 15 minutes away.

A 1.5-2-hour trip is $50/person; kids ages 8-12 are $35. Children under the age of 8, who ride with an adult in the tandem kayak are free.

Please download and read waiver before arriving. Each person will need to sign their own waiver.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to know how to kayak?  No. Kayaking in still waters is very easy to do, and your guide will give you instructions on how to enter and exit the kayak and the basic strokes.

Do I need to know how to swim?  It would be nice, but not necessary. You will be wearing a life jacket the entire time.

Will we see any animals?  We hope so! The lakes and swamps are home to many species of birds, fish, turtles, and other creatures.

What about alligators?  You might see some of those, too! Don't bother them, and they won't bother you. We'll keep a healthy distance away from any we spot.

Can I take pictures?  Sure!  Just let your guide know when you'd like to grab a shot.  You'll be issued a dry bag to keep your keys and phone in. The guide will also be happy to take a picture of you and text or email it to you.

Will I get wet?  Yes, at least your feet and bottom.  Wear old clothes that you don't mind getting a little dirty, and sandals or old tennis shoes. In case of cold weather, the guide will provide you with some wet weather gear.

Can I bring my own kayak?  Absolutely! The charge for the tour is $25 per person if you have your own kayaks.
