steamy full moon paddle on bayou st john

Hiya paddlers, I would like to invite you to a fullmoon paddle on the bayou. Please bring yr own boat, paddle, and flotation vest. If you do not have a boat you can rent one online from bayoukayaks.com for $25. bayoukayays will be at the bayou. This time we paddle into the neighborhood, were we will have a break near the postoffice. Bring a light, a snack, some water, and a smile. We plan to hit the water at 7:30pm, as the sun sets. Be there at 7:00pm.

      July 22, 2013

    • Linell M.

      I rented..always thought about owning, but won't own until it's used daily!

    I have to bail on this trip! I do have a kayak which I rented and "released" this morning. Have fun and I'll look forward to pictures. See Yall next trip :-)

  • Maarten B.

    folks, i changed the meeting time to 7pm, so we can be on the water at 7.30 pm. this gives us more social daylight paddeling. but do not worry, it will be dark after 8pm. so we have enough moonlight to enjoy too :-)

    • Adam K.

      Maarten, I edited the message for the event to read meeting at 7:00 and leaving at 7:30 PM. (Didn't realize that anyone could edit the posting). Hopefully this will remove the potential for people to be confused now that all the time listings are consistent.

    I wanted to let y'all know I work closely with the Land Trust for Southeast Louisiana. We've had an annual canoe adventure on the Tangipahoa near independence, La the past two years in Oct. Also, the Slidell Hiiking Club's canoe adventure scheduled for the 27th has been cancelled. Is if anyway to open this group up to that one? I know there was some very sad paddlers (especially me!)

    • Maarten B.

      Hi Debbie, feel free to cross-link this webpage. Bear in mind though that if you do not have a kayak, you have to rent one. Bayoukayaks.com has 25 kayaks and they sold out last time :-). So make yr reservation on time on their website. Or rent elsewhere like from Masseys

      Debra, feel free to join NOLA Paddle Sports on Facebook and post any activities, ideas, etc.

    Does the group do any North shore kayaking/canoeing? I'd like to make this one, but I will be at Okotoma all day.

    July 3, 2013

    • Maarten B.

      Well, there is a North Shore Kayaking meetup, as well as a Mississippi Kayaking meetup. I generally post more advanced paddles on "Nola paddle Sports" on facebook (https://www.facebook.c...­).

      July 3, 2013

    • Michelle H.

      I belong to both groups. I did a FB request for the Nola paddle sports site. I just want to paddle with different groups to mix things up....
