a real full moon paddle on bayou st john

Hi there paddlers, I would like to invite you to a fullmoon paddle on the bayou. This time the moon is 100% full. 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 on the bayou. Bring a light, a snack, some water, and a good laugh. We plan to hit the water at 7:15 pm and be out of the water by 9.15 pm. The sun sets at 7.36 pm and we have a full moon at 8.45. Please Be there at 7:00pm. We are trying to get a gourmet food truck at the Bayou, pending enough paddlers. More updates on this later.

    Just went kayaking this weekend, followed by a busy Sunday and Monday, so I'm going to take a break tonight. See you all at the next one!

    My husband and I will be there as well as 2 children! A food truck is an excellent idea!!

      Not looking good for the food truck, sadly. I think we'll be able to get one for our larger weekend gatherings....

    There is a Groupon for a rental if anyone needs a kayak for Tuesday night.

      I believe bayoukayaks does not accept groupons for night paddles

      August 20, 2013

    • Chet J.

      She keeps special hours for this sort of event--she's not actually open on Tuesdays.

      August 20, 2013

  • Maarten B.

    and..... bring a light if you have one, as well as a flotation vest if you bring yr own kayak

    August 20, 2013

  • Maarten B.

    The weather is looking good for tonight, only a 20% chance for thunderstorms :-)

    August 20, 2013

  • Chet J.

    Haven't gotten a reply from the food truck folks.... :-(

  • Maarten B.

    hi paddlers, as of now tuesday night, we have a 40% chance of thunderstorms. i will keep monitoring the weather tuesday during the day, and keep you posted.

    • Maarten B.

    Thought it best to stick to weekend excursions now that school has started. The kids do much better when I put them to bed.....and early! Enjoy! :)

    I have a 2 person blow up kayak would that work?

    August 18, 2013

    • Maarten B.

      I have seen blow up kayaks on the bayou. So why not.

      August 18, 2013

    • miriam

      cool, thanks... and are you all going fast? I wouldn't wanna be stuck on the bayou in the dark all by myself cos i'm too slow... and how about that flotation vest, it's up to me to wear one or not, right?

    Still need to rent canoe's for me & my roommate! but so long as they still have them I'm in!

    August 17, 2013

    • Maarten B.

      Last time I checked there were still kayaks for rent on bayoukayaks.com. they may go fast, it is advised to rent one online.

    August 18, 2013

    • Chet J.

      we always have a handful of canoes out there!

      August 18, 2013

  • Michelle M.

    Sounds like fun! I wish I could come, but I've got to put my boys to bed early that night as it is a school night. Y'all have a blast!

    I would like to go. Do I have to rent the kayak online or can I rent the kayak there? Do they accept credit card or is it cash only? Their website says they are open until 7pm, will they be staying open later that day since this trip is from 7:15 to 9:15pm? I tried calling them but got their VM.
    Thanks.

    August 12, 2013

    • Maarten B.

      Hi Fernando, I believe you have to rent and pay inline. But I am sure you can wait last minute and pay with cash...but then you risk all kayaks may be rented. Bayou kayaks will be there till we get out of the water, around 9 pm.

      August 12, 2013

    • Fernando

      Thanks! I will rent online then.
