Going on a kayak tour with Honey Island Kayak Tours was by far the highlight of my trip to New Orleans! The water was beautiful, the route amazing, and the guide incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.
From the first moment that we arrived, the staff was welcoming and kind, ensuring that our trip was one-of-a-kind and truly outstanding,

We decided to stop at the welcome center for a rest stop after entering Mississippi from Louisiana on I-59 North. The welcome center is an attractive building with clean restroom facilities. The host offered us coffee, asked for a home zip code for survey purposes, and asked if we had any questions or needed any assistance. A very hospitable welcome to Mississippi!
