Floats Your Boat
If your next trip to New Orleans aligns with a full moon, hop aboard a moonlight paddle with Canoe & Trail. Each Saturday on or before the full moon, a guide takes a group of 25 to 30 out for a four-hour relaxing row in the Louisiana swamps and bayous. Enjoy the nocturnal symphony and search for the orange-red eyes of resident gators. BYOK (kayak) or BYOC (canoe) earns a discounted ticket price.
For an on-the-water, under-the-full-moon trip that requires less stamina, set sail off the California coast aboard one of Santa Barbara Sailing Center's cruising yachts. Enhance your full-moon float with a charcuterie board from C'est Cheese or by hiring a chef to customize a dinner menu and local wine pairings.
