I have done this trip probably 20 times, and every time I go I think I enjoy it more. Just minutes outside of Tampa, this leisurly paddle down the Hillsborough River takes you back to what Florida looked like hundreds of years ago surrounding you with cypress swamp, tree canopies and tons of wildlife. The folks that own the company couldn't be nicer and the guys that work for them follow suit. They do an excellent job of keeping the river cleared of downed trees so you rarely have to portage around one. We do the 9 mile trip which gives you a lunch/bathroom stop at a county park halfway. This trip, we counted 75 alligators with the largest right at 10 feet. It is a totally fun, relaxing and safe way to escape the city and enjoy a slice of real Florida outdoors for less than a casual dinner out. I highly recommend this experience!
