This is nice float trip down an unusual bayou. Several of the rapids have nice places to surf. Keep an eye out for submerged logs.
Shuttle service available from Tack-A-Paw Expeditions.
This is the first rapid in this section of the bayou. It's a small pourover that can surfed from the eddy on river left.
At lower levels, this rapid has quite a few rocks in and around the main wave train.
When the river takes a right before the falls, there's a nice little wave on river left. Enter the falls just right of center and there's a nice wave up top. Then work your way towards river left to surf the wave hole in the main drop.
This rapid has some of the best waves. There's one on the center right at the top. There's also a good one on the left side in the main flow.
There's a nice pourover on river right for surfing at lower levels. The main pourover on river right and the slide beside it are great for surfing at higher levels!
This is the longest rapid on the run. It has two very long wave trains going down river left. Avoid the large root ball protruding from the river left bank.
This rapid is created by slabs of rock angled upstream. This creates some undercut areas, especially on river right. It also creates a nasty pourover.
