Wednesday, October 8th beginning at 5:45am (yes, that’s early but it’ll be well worthwhile in order to see the full eclipse of the moon.)  We’ll head out to Chesser Prairie under the cover of darkness to  watch the sky for the full eclipse. Then, we’ll then watch the sunrise and return to the dock by 8:30am.

Fall is finally here and the days are starting to cool off.  Alligators can often be seen basking in the sun. The prairies are awash in beautiful pastels of purple and yellow bladderwart, tickseed sunflower, white water lilies, yellow-eyed grass, ladies hatpins and false foxglove.

The water levels are perfect for joining one of our 90 minute guided boat tours, scheduling a 4 hour excursion, sunset cruise or venturing out on your own/
