Your Adventure Begins Here!
It’s winter in the Okefenokee and we’re finally seeing some cooler weather.
With our lower than normal water levels we’re typically seeing lots of alligators out along the canal and in the prairies as well as large flocks of wading birds including ibis, egrets, great blue herons, little blues, green herons and a few bitterns now and then. Our migratory sandhill cranes are here and can sometimes been seen in large groups out in the prairie.
Join us for one of our 90 minute guided boat tours, reserve a 2 hour sunset tour, a 4 hour extended tour, or head out on your own in a canoe or kayak.
