We spent a great 2-3 hours at Eco-Odyssey, and selected the Wanderer paddle-boat excursion. It was a great experience on the small streams in our paddle-boat, ideal for our 11 and 13-year olds (and us). We didn't see a ton of animals (a few turtles...More

The children begged for us to return to this wonderful spot. We were worried it would not be as entertaining as the first original visit. We were wrong, it surpassed it! We saw tiny fish, turtles and enjoyed our adventure that lasted almost 2 hours....More

One of the best attractions I've ever been to and very reasonably priced. We did the paddle boat excision, using the 'observer' adventure. Perfect for a 6 and 8 year old. They had a blast looking for the animal clues and learned something along the...More

Thank you for your visit and comment. Effectively because of natural phenomena (dragonflies, frogs and bats), there are very few insects that sting.

We were 3 adults and 4 children (aged 9 to 13), Had booked 3 pedal boats. The children especially enjoyed finding the clues and solving the riddle. But just navigating in this wide swamp laced with numerous channels forming a maze was relaxing. We had...More

Who would think that in the middle of this location - a large water maze with paddle boats and a well-thought-out itinerary to follow would be available for a summer experience. Have fun.

Wonderful setting. You get to travel on a pedal boat that you pedal through swampy area looking for clues about wildlife that live in this type of environment. When we went, we did not have issues with bugs. We found it very informative. The set-up...More

Thanks for your comment! Effectively people are surprised that there is no bugs in the marsh, thanks to dragonflyes, frogs and bats. We have schools coming for Biology classes, they learn by searching in the book for different species they find in our environment. Wakefield...More
