2017 Schedule of Events

Shuttle Details

A shuttle bus will be provided for all 4 days of Paddle Bayou Lafourche. The shuttle will leave at 8:30AM SHARP from the CAMP SITE. If you are not on the shuttle for 8:30 AM, you WILL be left behind and it will be your responsibility to make any necessary arrangements. If at all possible, please drop off extra passengers at the launch site and have 1 person in your party drive to the camp site. This will help to maximize the limited space on the shuttle bus. The shuttle runs each morning from the campsite to the launch site. So...

1. If you have your own canoe/kayak, you should drop it off at the launch site first, then drive to the camp site and ride the shuttle back to the launch site. This way, you can leave what you don’t need during the paddle in your vehicle and won’t have unnecessary weight in your boat.

2. If you are renting a canoe, you should park and catch the shuttle bus at the day’s camp site and ride to the launch site. Your canoe, paddles and life jacket will be waiting for you. Please allow 30 minutes drive time between the launch site and the camp site for each day.
