I'm going to be on a business trip in New Orleans at the end of April. Doesn't look like much to hike and camp around there, at least that I know of. But there are a several Kayak rentals close by and kayaking in the swamps sounds like fun.
It would be my first time in the swamps so I really would appreciate any feedback like:
- is this is a good idea?
- are the swamps nice to kayak in?
- any specific place you'd recommend?
- do I need to worry about alligators? I don't have any alligator experience/knowledge.
