He obviously knew the creek very well and what parts to point out to us that we would be interested in. I didnt know anything... More

Katie provided an educational and entertaining tour on the black water. She was very knowledgeable about the trees and wildlife. We saw lots of fish, 2 small gators, and lots of old, beautiful trees. The canoes, paddles and life jackets were in good shape and we felt very safe on the water. The tour may have been just a little... More

Our Girl Scout Troop took a wonderful boat ride over to Wassaw Island, where Kristin gave us a great tour around the island. Along the tour she gave the girls time to explore on their own and pointed out neat things along the way. It was really one of the best days and events of the entire trip for our... More

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.
