Savannah River Tours
Plan a ride on their Blackwater River Float for an afternoon of easy gliding down the Savannah River. On this Savannah River tour you can self-paddle a canoe (along with a friend!) for an up-close look at the area’s mirror-like water surface that the ponds, marshes, and river has to offer. Truly a sight to behold! Clear and dark, yet extremely clean, this adventurous scenery alone is worth planning the destination.
Tour Wassaw Island and Ossabaw Island
Meanwhile, you can listen to songbirds and other calls of nature for adventure on Wassaw Island National Wildlife Refuge or Ossabaw Island, such as the belted kingfisher, Mississippi and swallowtail kites, and more. Visit during the fall for an intense orange with changing leaf patterns.
Feel the freedom of paddling open areas for adventure, then gain peaceful moments that are unmatched while gliding through the Tupelo tunnels.
