We had a great time paddling around the swamp. It was so peaceful and pretty. Towards the end, you have to navigate around tight trees which was an added bonus. Made the trip even more fun. My recommendation is to book a 2-hour trip. One...More

The afternoon was a sweltering 95F but the mill pond proved a shady delight. We brought a cooler for drinks and a dry bag for the camera. Follow the buoys arising the pond. Catch sight of the swamp gnomes? Enchanting!

Don't think twice; sign up for this lovely experience. Sit back and enjoy the quiet, beautiful scenery. The first outing of the day is probably the most shady and quiet, we only saw a few fishermen. Enjoy.
