Lafayette Travel and the Bayou Vermilion District have partnered to create the Vermilion Voyage, a three-day overnight paddle down the Bayou Vermilion launching from the Acadiana Park Nature Station to Palmetto Island State Park. Participants will have the rare opportunity to consecutively paddle just over 50 miles of the Vermilion through Lafayette and Vermilion Parishes.
Registration for the event is $350 and includes paddle craft, life jacket, guide, shuttle service, insurance costs, breakfast, lunch, and dinner with some beverages as well as evening entertainment. Participants are encouraged to bring their own water, snacks, and other essentials they may need for the trip). A full checklist of suggested supplies will be made available closer to the event date.
NOTE: Please note, while this voyage is considered a Class I (paddler is familiar with basic strokes and can handle a tandem canoe competently in flat water) please take into consideration the daily mileage.
