Whether you’re taking off, setting sail, or just want to enjoy some nice, Southern sunshine, you can find it all on Lake Pontchartrain.
Lake Pontchartrain is not actually a lake, but a mixture of fresh and salt water that is directly connected to the Gulf of Mexico. And if you have ever driven on the Causeway Bridge — one of the longest bridges in the entire world — you know just how vast it is. The lake spans over 40 miles long and 30 miles wide. To call it big is an understatement.
The beauty of this lake is undeniable. And with the restoration of the New Canal Lighthouse you can learn more about its rich maritime history through educational tours provided right here on the water.
