  1. Unlock & Check Equipment

Please check first for damage and that the accessories are complete: paddles, life jackets, seats

If anything is missing or damaged, please report immediately! Please email hello@bayouadventure.com  or text +15047545300. We will issue you a new PIN for a different locker.

Recommended gear would be athletic wear, sun protective clothing, and water shoes or waterproof sandals.

On your trip we recommend you bring sunscreen, bug spray, hat, sunglasses, and water. 

Alligators, Snakes, Turtles, Egrets, Herons, Ibis, Hawks, Owls, Bald Eagles, White-tailed deer, Nutria, Raccoons and more!

Again, there’s no bad time to go. Our favorite times are April, late October and early November. Winter can be a great because the summer grass that is typically six feet tall is now only inches high. This means you’ll see more nutria and deer, and the migratory birds such as waterfowl and the bald eagles. Alligators are tough to find when temps drop below 70 degrees, no matter what time of year, but they can be found throughout the winter on warmer days. Plus, there is so much more to the tour than just seeing alligators, that any time of year is a great time to visit.

The security deposit is simply a hold on your credit card. Once you properly end your rental, and return the equipment damage free the deposit on your credit card will be released.

Life jackets are required to be worn for all children 16 and under. We also recommend everyone wear a lifejacket for there safety out on the water. 


There is nothing like taking a kayak or a paddle board and heading out on the water on a perfect day. Of course there is also the hassle of loading the boats, driving to the river, unloading, forgetting your life jacket or paddles, then you still have to load everything back up and take it all home and store it all! What if you don’t own a kayak, or a truck?

This is why we believe in this solution. The station is located on the river with everything you will need, just rent your unit, come to the station, unlock it and get on the water. Get back to hassle-free enjoyment of the great outdoors. You can rent a unit on your schedule, without having to wait for a shop to open, or worrying about when it will close.
