If anyone considers this trip to be a pleasure, then they have not tried it !
My family with two kids thought it to be a great idea after we read that it was one of the top spots to go canoeing, what a mistake ! It turned out to be over four hours of getting stuck on sand banks, sunken logs and overhanging branches and tree limbs that scratched us. The worst part was that close to the end we also flipped our canoe. I got caught on a tree limb and could not free myself. Our two girls were scared to the bone.
No one at the concession stand told us that this might be very rough. We have enough respect for nature to know how far we can manage. We would not have chosen to do the ride had we been told !!
So please beware, this canoe ride is only for very fit adults. Please also be aware that alligators are present, we saw one swimming close by
