Bayou Teche Experience
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed a wonderful 8 hr self-guided canoe trip on the Bayou Teche! Corey Werks, the owner, has a passion for the bayou and is a wealth of information. His stories of the Bayou are something we will always remember. We always like to do active things if possible on vacation, and Bayou Teche offered many options for guided and unguided canoe and kayak experiences.

Having spent a night in the kayaking cabin (also a bnb), we took a self-guided tour along the river, canal and into Lake Martin. Cory was super helpful and knowledgeable, he gave us a map and very clear directions so we had no trouble finding our way. He also picked us up from the lake and took us to see the rookery where ibis, spoonbills and egrets were nesting - as well as pointing out a 'medium' gator sitting under a tree (6ft). A great experience, would highly recommend.

It was a great time!! Cory is owner/operator of his uprising little business. As far as Kayaking he is the only one for the area. You can do a guided tour or self guided. He is very knowledgable of the sport and the area. He assisted us in having a memorable time in the area. We would definitely come back again and would love to see all that this enthusiastic young man has accomplished with all the various water activities he has in store for the future.

We had a great time kayaking on Bayou Teche. Cory is absolutely first class guy. It was a breeze to set up the trip. The kayaks were great, Cory explained everything we needed to know, gave kayaking tips and showed the route. We went through Bayou and the canal to Lake Martin. The lake, the swamp, was just unbelievable. The alligators, turtles, birds everywhere. My kids, 11 and 16 had a blast spotting gators. Cory picked us up at the end of the trip at the lake. On the way back to the starting point Cory gave us an overview of the the history of the area and its people, as well as recommendations on local attractions. The trip on Bayou Teche and Lake Martin was a highlight of our visit in Acadia. Thanks Cory!

Cory, owner and operator of Bayou Teche Experience, gave a quick heads up on how to properly get in & out, plus paddling...and we had a terrific time on the Bayou. So fun. Horses ran along the banks while we were kayaking past them. Cory was patient and really took care of us. His mom grew up in the area, Cory was a world class fencer in Europe, speaks fluent German, French as well as English. He knows the area because he lives there. I highly recommend his company to experience the Bayou up close and personal. THANKS, CORY!!!
