new orleans safe landing

Good Day,

Anybody know if there is a boat ramp anywhere in New Orleans on the mississippi suitable for pulling my Kayak out?

I am currently in Natchez, making my way down the mississippi in a hobie cat kayak-contraption. I will be in New orleans in (I guestimate) two weeks or so…

Thank You,


I’ll post this
I’ll post this to the websites of one of the local paddling clubs and see if I get any good responses. I’ve never seen any ramps myself. If exiting the river anywhere besides a ramp, many of the levees on the river can be quite steep and right in the city itself they are lined with rip-rap rock. Tricky…

Thanks for offering that. I will be unable to check in on my email after tomorow- I will be moving on from natchez (the river is calling me back) If I get any great advice, It would be cool if someone could call me at 608-347-3504 Otherwise, I am content living dangerously, making it up as I go along. I May just shoot by the city and come back by another means of transportation at a later time. Be Well,


I like your attitude

If you don't get an with what you have or what you get. You're on a long trip and you knew it was going to be tough so go for it. I really wish you well. Some way, some how you'll find a way and you know it. I know it so let us all know how it ends.

I like toughing it out. It makes the trip that much sweeter especially when you overcome a monster. How sweet it is.

Slow me down but you can't stop me is my motto on the river.

Good luck

here is a list of ramps…
for the state of Louisiana.

Have seen people boat up to the Algiers ferry by Harrahs casino…just run fast.
