Brief description:  up to 12 miles (round trip) of meandering, narrow bayou – lots of beautiful, mostly green scenery.  Expect it to be sunny, hot and humid, and come prepared to minimize interaction with some of the local wildlife (mosquitoes).  We will probably have to eat lunch and take breaks in our boats due to lack of take-out locations and height of water.  We will seek out shady locations for snacks, lunch and breaks.



Skill Level: 

Beginner:  Familiarity with basic strokes and can make the boat go straight on flat water typically experienced on Armand Bayou. You can maneuver the boat on slowly moving water, possess an awareness of basic river safety and can confidently avoid hazards and strainers frequently experienced on Texas' Colorado River or the Buffalo Bayou at a modest flow rate.
