What You Can Expect

New Orleans Paddleboard Tour

City Park

After pickup at your downtown New Orleans hotel, travel to Bayou St John in the Mid-City neighborhood of New Orleans. After a brief orientation session, hop aboard your stand-up paddleboard and follow your guide into the placid waters. Stand-up paddleboarding is easy to learn and allows you to get a workout while enjoying unobstructed views in every direction. Feel free to ask your guide to take photos of you on your stand-up paddleboard as you travel a famous Louisiana bayou.

Your local guide will lead you along Bayou St John while sharing the history of the structures you pass. About halfway through your 2-mile (3.2-km) paddleboard tour, you'll take a break at the Pitot House, a Creole colonial plantation along Bayou St John that's on the National Register of Historic Places. A Louisiana Landmark Society guide will lead you on a 1.5-hour walking tour of this old home filled with 19th-century antiques.

Continue your paddleboard tour, passing major city landmarks such as City Park -- which at 1,300 acres is larger than Central Park -- and the New Orleans Fair Grounds, one of the oldest thoroughbred racetracks in the United States.

After your 1.5-hour paddleboard trip, settle into Parkway Bakery and Tavern for lunch (own expense). Famous for its poor boy sandwiches -- which include golden fried catfish and grilled smoked alligator sausage link varieties -- this local institution has been visited by President Obama. Your 1.5-hour Bayou St John paddleboard tour ends at the restaurant; you can make your way back to your hotel from there or continue your exploration of the historic Mid-City area.
