Okefenokee Swamp Tour

Okefenokee Adventures, nestled on the bank of the historic Suwannee Canal, will be our embarking point into the Okefenokee Swamp where we will enjoy a 90 minute tour onboard a 24 foot covered Carolina Skiff. We will travel along the historic Suwannee Canal through a tangled forest of bay, cypress, pine and shrubs, then out into the open expanse of Chesser Prairie. Our naturalist guides will share their knowledge of the swamp’s natural and cultural history, tell interesting swamp stories and identify plants and wildlife along the way. We may encounter egrets, herons, ibis, sandhill cranes, red-shouldered hawks, American alligators, maybe deer, and if we’re really lucky, a bobcat or bear!

Tours run throughout the day and no advance reservation is required. The cost is $18.50 for adults and $11.25 for kids.

Visit the website http://www.okefenokeeadventures.com/ for more information.

We will meet in the parking lot of the Panera Bread located at 4403 Roosevelt Blvd and figure out carpooling needs. The drive to the adventure will be about 110 miles round trip and we will share the cost of gas. It may be a good idea to bring bug spray.  If there is interest, we can have lunch as a group afterward.

If you prefer to meet us there, get directions here: http://www.okefenokeeadventures.com/directions/ or on google maps here: http://goo.gl/maps/4sTnS.  We should arrive around 10:10am.

    Hi Joe, Are you planning to reserve spots for us on a particular cruise or should I make a reservation for myself? If so what time do you plan to be joining the cruise. Thanks, Cheryl
