Your Adventure Begins Here!
The winter season brings cooler weather but our days here in south Georgia are usually quite pleasant and comfortable. Alligators can often be seen basking in the sun on the banks of the Suwannee Canal and on the grasses in the prairies.
Our migratory Sandhill Cranes are here around Thanksgiving through early February.
These 4-5 ft tall grayish-tan birds spend their days foraging for food, especially the bulb of the red-root plant, out in the grassy flats. Their loud and shrill trumpeting calls can be heard across the prairies. By about the 2nd week in February they’ll pick up and head back north-west to breed.
Join us for one of our 90 minute guided boat tours, 4 hour extended tours, sunset tours or head out on your own in a canoe or kayak.
