Boating

The waterways along or near the Louisiana Coast are a haven for all types of boating. From canoeing to sailing, to pirogueing to speed boating … water sports is a Louisiana pastime for all ages. Louisiana is home to lakes, streams, rivers, bayous, canals, coulees, swamps, marshes, and water prairies and wetlands. Here you can blaze through the swamps on airboat, or meander through the bayou on flatboat. In Louisiana, water is everywhere. So if venturing into the outdoors on water is your perfect getaway, there's no place more perfect than the Louisiana Coast.

Bayou Segnette State Park offers the best of everything. Just a thirty-minute drive across the Mississippi River from New Orleans, a multitude of recreational opportunities awaits visitors of all ages--boating, fishing, canoeing, picnicking, playgrounds and, of course, swimming in the wave pool, as well as an ecosystem that offers you the chance to spot plants, trees and wildlife from both swamps and marshland.

Bayou Teche National Wildlife Refuge was established in 2001 with the primary purpose of aiding in con - servation efforts for the Louisiana Black Bear, a federally threatened subspecies of the American Black Bear. The refuge totals just under 10,000 acres and is subdivided into several units. Both the Garden City Unit and the Franklin Unit feature walking trails through live oak-dominated bottomland hardwood forest and cypress-tupelo swamp. The Franklin Unit also contains 2 canoe trails, as well as a driving trail bordering much of the Franklin Unit, connecting it to the Garden City Unit via a levee road along the Hanson Canal. Check the refuge headquarters for more information regarding trail access. Although little-documented due to the young age of the refuge, the avifauna here is both diverse and dense. Neotropical species such as Acadian Flycatcher, White-eyed and Red-eyed vireos, and Northern Parula, Yellow-throated, Prothonotary, and Hooded warblers nest in abundance. Year round residents include Wood Duck, Red-shouldered Hawk, Mourning Dove, Barred Owl, Red-bellied, Downy, Hairy and Pileated woodpeckers, Carolina Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, and many others Common winter birds include Red-tailed Hawk, Belted Kingfisher, Eastern Phoebe, Tree Swallow, House Wren, Winter Wren, Hermit Thrush, Savannah Sparrow, and American Goldfinch.
