Canoeing in between cypress trees while hearing so much information about nature. Listening and seeing different animal species.

We were fortunate to spend the better part of a day with Garret and captain Joel at Wassaw Island which is essentially a nature preserve. Garret is knowledgeable about the island's history, ecology, flora and fauna and was happy to share his knowledge with us. Our trip was easy-going and not a pressured experience. We were able to spend time to ourselves walking the island's flat sandy beach while marveling at the many horseshoe crab exoskeletons, sand dollars and letter olive shells present that day during low tide. Late September seemed to be a fantastic time to visit the island due the abundance of brightly colored butterflies in the wooded marsh area we walked through and also along the beach dunes and ridges.

My husband and I booked the black water paddle with my parents during our visit to savannah. It was definitely the highlight. The scenery is unique and beautiful as you take a leisurely paddle in canoes along the dark waters. Garret was fabulous, explaining all the different plants and animals and some history of savannah. He even led us to an area to spot an alligator. The tour takes about 4 hours and the meeting point is about 40 min outside of downtown. A must do!!!

We did the blackwater paddle / canoe trip with Garret and absolutely loved it. Garret was extremely knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable even though we were not experienced paddlers! We saw three baby alligators and enjoyed the beautiful surrounds and serenity. Garret was also very generous in picking us up and dropping us off. Cannot recommend this enough as a trip activity!
