Great Time!

We had a great time on our pontoon boat tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the local history and the natural wildlife. She really got us up close and personal with several waterfalls, which was incredible! Lake Jocassee is truly beautiful and this is a great way to get out there and see different parts of the lake. I highly recommend this tour.

Loved it!

We had a wonderful day on this beautiful lake. We got lots of information and saw several waterfalls. Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. She gave us time to swim at several locations. I highly recommend the 4 hour tour!

Simple booking and pickup, awesome service

I booked a kayak for 3 days for camping at the boat-in campground, and the pickup and dropoff was very simple. The equipment was great quality, the campground was well maintained, and exploring the falls was really interesting as long as you're willing to paddle out.
