We decided after exploring to the right from the launch under the bridge on hwy 115, to give it a try going to the left of the bridge this trip.
This was a very exciting paddle, and saw much more wildlife. We saw several alligators this trip, most of them small (2-4 ft.)and very shy, couldn't get a good pic because they wouldn't let us get close enough.
This is also a very beautiful paddle, with lots of trees and shade to paddle through. Big Creek Bayou is certainly our favorite place to go and enjoy a relaxing, yet exciting paddle.
There's good fishing though out the bayou and plenty of places to stop and stretch your legs.
