Deep Swamp Canoe Floats
Saturdays: 7:45 a.m. GREAT FOR BEGINNERS! ONLY 7 SLOTS LEFT

Discover remote and seldom seen areas of Eagle Lake. Learn about the history of the area and the native flora and fauna as you are guided through the towering trees of the Bald Cypress swamp. Get an excellent view of a large heron and egret rookery, see primitive fish splash by your canoe, and possibly glimpse a Bald Eagle. Reservations are required as there is limited seating. Privately owned canoes and kayaks are welcome, but also must make reservations. Meet at the Visitor Center; prepare to caravan to the launch site. Bring water, snacks, mosquito repellent, sunscreen, and clothes and shoes that can get wet and muddy.Trips man be cancelled due to water level or weather. Cost is $5 a seat or $10 per canoe (cash only - bring correct change). I HAVE RESERVED ALL 8 SLOTS LEFT...
