Paddle Boarding with
Bayou Paddle Co.
Mark Salvetti

Canoe, Kayak, or Paddleboard on the Northshore

The Northshore is laced with bayous, river, and streams that make it easy to glide through the scenery the old fashioned way, in kayaks and canoes, as well as standing atop paddleboards. You can rent kayaks from several outfitters, including Bayou Adventure in Lacombe or Brooks' Bike Shop, Massey's Outfitters, and Canoe and Trail Outfitters in Covington. Contact Bayou Paddle Co. to find out how you can SUP on a guided excursion on the Tchefuncte and Bogue Falaya Rivers.
