Overview

Picture the moss hanging on gnarled cypress trees as you travel into one of the wildest and most pristine river swamps in America. With the swamp tales of pirates and sightings of Big Foot in the back of your mind, you may be just a little bit nervous at first, but after your first boat ride you'll want to go back again and again! You'll be overcome by the primitive beauty of the cypress trees rising from the water...the sweet smell of wild azaleas in the air....

Enjoyable day on Capt. Bryan's boat. No big gators as too cold but several little ones plus great herons, hawks, raccoons and, most importantly, the swamp, river and its environs. Captain Bryan was knowledgeable and funny. Captain Jack, the manager, was helpful. Boat was comfortably...More
