Joined my friends with Georgia Homeschooler on a Jocassee lake tour today. All the kids loved it and us big kids were thrilled! I grew up in nearby Seneca but had never visited Jocasee before. Brooks was an awesome guide, jumping off the boat and leading us to all the beautiful places. He was a hit with the kids and... More

My wife and I have taken this tour 3 times already since moving to nearby NC. This trip we took a group of Russian visitors, all young professionals. Everyone had an awesome time. This group of people all have some focus on the environment. Brooks, the co-owner of the business and guide, did an extraordinary job discussing the ecology of... More

We took a four-hour pontoon boat tour of Lake Jocassee with Kay as our guide. It was great and you should take this tour. My parents (and my son) took a tour last year and loved it so much that this year they got the whole family together for a ride. Lake Jocassee is so beautiful. Most of the area... More

This was our third year of taking a boat tour on our annual camping trip to Devil's Fork State Park. Since our group this year was much larger, we had the pleasure of being led by both Captain Brooks and Captain Kay on two pontoons. We had 10 kids and I don't know how many adults. Ages 4 to 60....

Despite being nearby residents for over 4 years, this was our first tour of the lake…..and certainly not our last. Kay educated and entertained us for over 3 hours, sharing her knowledge of the lake's history and especially its botanic life. This area is a true treasure of nature and we'd encourage anyone in the area to have Kay &... More

Cannot say enough good things about our evening boat tour with Kay last Saturday. The lake itself is totally incredible, but the lasting impression was really made by Kay, who personalized our tour to meet our needs, and whose passion for the care and conservation of this pristine lake is obvious with every sentence she speaks. This was much more... More

The title is a direct quote from my 10-year-old son. We just spent the morning touring Lake Jocassee with Kay as our guide. Kay was thoughtful and knowledgeable not only about the history of the lake, but of the flora and fauna as well. She first took us across the lake to what felt like our own private beach for...

Highlight of our trip. Breathtaking scenary, friendly people and just plain awesome! The boat stops and gives you the chance to swim through several waterfalls and water covered with floating flowers ( magnolias? ). Worth every penny and although scheduled for 3 hours, we actually were out for 3 and one half hours. Even owner/operators' dog joined us and was... More

We were dropped of at Horse pasture bridge (?) and hiked for over 8 miles (just over 4 hours) on an easy to moderate (for regular hikers) or moderate (for new hikers). They... More

Jocassee Lake Tours and Meetup organized a camping trip, lake tour and hike for us over a weekend. The scenery was gorgeous, the hike was one of the best and Brooks was such an entertaining guide who truly loves the lake. He knows so much of the history of the area which made the tour really interesting besides being the... More
