We just got back from Savannah. One of our highlights from the week was the 4 hour paddle with Garrett down Ebeneezer Creek - absolutely beautiful and relaxing. We saw quite a bit of wildlife. Garrett was very knowledgable and friendly. We would highly recommend!

Our first trip to Savannah has been a pleasure in all respects, but delighted we included 2 outdoor adventures with this company. We spent 4 hours birding and crocodile spotting with expert and enthusiast Diana Churchill at the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge. You don't have to be a birder to enjoy this experience, though it probably helps. Extremely accessible 5... More

The tour was in-car with some walking sections. We saw all kinds of wild life, Kristen was amazing, and we all had a blast. The tour was all we had hoped for and more. We HIGHLY recommend this trip, and it's only 15 minutes from Savannah's historic district.

If you are tired of urban scene, there is a wonderful world of natural beauty awaiting you close outside of the city of Savannah. Having done the usual tourist treks, we opted to go out and see this natural habitat. We could not have asked for a better company that Wilderness Southeast to do it with. They were very responsive... More

Diane was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and had everything you needed/ forgot. Bug spray, binoculars etc. She has a super scope and could find birds like you wouldn't believe.

You don’t have to be a bird fanatic to enjoy a trip with Diana Churchill. My husband and I recently took the “duck trip” through the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge and had a wonderful afternoon. Neither of us knows much about birds but Diana shared her incredible knowledge and a super scope that allowed us to view all kinds of... More

I found the trip very informative and also a chance to identify and learn about the wildlife in the Savannah area. The highlight of the trip was the opportunity to view an american eagle as it hunted in the marsh. Many birds were seen and identified by Diana who was the very informed and interesting trip leader. She even provided... More

A friend and I arranged a canoe trip through a cypress swamp on Ebenezer Creek outside of Savannah, Georgia. The trip was done by Wilderness Southeast, who provided the canoes, equipment, and a guide. The day was magnificent-sunny and warm, the guide absolutely terrific, and floating thru both a cypress swamp and through a tupelo area was just magic. I... More

First let me say that I was using a Groupon for two people, my husband and myself, and because of the federal government shut down and the closure of the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge during a part of the period during which this Groupon was valid, Wilderness Southeast graciously and generously allowed me to extend my expiration date.

My wife Laurel and I were in Savannah for a weekend trip to celebrate my 40th birthday in mid October, and she surprised me with a canoe trip on Ebenezer Creek. I didn't know exactly what to expect, and I remember the uneasy feeling I had when we pushed off the bank to begin our "three hour tour". I can... More
