Did a wonderful 2 hour tour with Captain Joejoe today starting at Prien Lake Park. We enjoyed a wonderful adventure around Prien lake and contraband bayou. Captain Joejoe was such an awesome captain and gave us a phenomenal tour of the area. She is so fun and we had a wonderful relaxing time. Can’t wait for our next adventure, where we plan to head north of the i-10 bridge to the Calcasieu river! Thank you Captain Joejoe and Lake Area Adventures!...

I highly recommend Lake Area Adventures for swim lessons. Our instructor is Samantha, she truly cares about teaching my 5 year old son how to swim. He went from scared of the water to asking me when his next swim lesson was. She’s taught him a life skill that can potentially save his life. I can’t thank you enough .

We are experienced kayakers and decided to take a trip during a visit to Lake Charles. Our guide, Caymn, was very good, laid back, and easy going. He was very knowledgeable in the area and knew what he was doing. They have a couple different areas to go to. One is for beginners and the other is for more experienced kayakers. We did the more experienced tour, and the scenery was awesome, although we didn't...

We are experienced kayakers and decided to take a trip during a visit to Lake Charles.  Our guide, Caymn, was very good, laid back, and easy going.  He was very knowledgeable in the area and knew what he was doing.  They have a couple different areas to go to.  One is for beginners and the other is for more experienced kayakers. We did the more experienced tour, and the scenery was awesome, although we didn't get to see any gators, but there were plenty of fish and birds.  I highly recommend this company for kayaking in Lake Charles!!

The best four hours we had while visiting Lake Charles. With two teenage boys we were looking for something to do as a family. Renting the pontoon was an excellent choice. Jojoe was super friendly booking it for us and gave thorough pontoon instructions when we met at the dock. It was really neat to explore the lakes and bridges through the waterways .
