High Adventure plans exit from Port Eads

The company operating Port Eads at the southern tip of Plaquemines Parish looks to be on its way out.

The Plaquemines Parish Council briefly discussed the impending departure of High Adventure during its Jan. 10 council meeting in Belle Chasse. The world-wide hunting and fishing destination company has contracted with the Port Eads Fishing Refuge since 2014 to operate the secluded camp and will remain open through Jan. 31. But Jacque Kuchta, a PEFR board member, informed council and administration in a Jan. 8 letter that High Adventure “have elected not to renew their contract for a second term.”

The most pressing of several problems, according to Kuchta’s letter, is that South Pass, the waterway used to access Port Eads, has silted in to the point that only small boats with shallow drafts can navigate to the camp.
