We had an excellent tour. Saw over 30 species of birds. Learned about the special ecological system of the marsh grass, tides, storms, birds and other beasties living together. Highly recommended.

I'm glad you enjoyed your Kayak Trip. Winter in the Salt Marsh can be pretty spectacular. We just have to focus on the warmer days. Come see us again in the Spring through Fall to see the Cypress Swamp at its best.
