THE only NATURALIST-LED TOURS of LAKE JOCASSEE and the JOCASSEE GORGES. THE DIFFERENCE IS KNOWLEDGE, LOVE OF PLACE, PASSION
You just think you've had fun. This is da BOMB for sumertime activities. Are you sure-footed, adventuresome, and a lover of cold mountain water? If so, this is for you! Travel the world if you want, but exhilarating outdoor adventure is right here, right in our back yard. We'll leave the boat at the entrance to Lake Jocassee's wildest rivers and creeks and head upstream on foot. The wildest, most awesome places within the Jocassee Gorges are reachable, and only reachable, by boat on Lake Jocassee. Join us to explore the remote reaches of Whitewater River and Falls, Wright Creek Falls, Thompson River and Falls, Horsepasture River, Laurel Fork Falls, Toxaway River, and Sky Falls. We can’t get to all these places in one day, of course, so we offer both lower lake and upper lake outings. Wild River Adventure Tours are warm weather, in-and-out of the water activities, as we creek hike our way into some of the most remote places in this part of the world. It’s a physical (and thrilling!) day, and therefore limited strictly to the young at heart. Got a 'bucket list'? Put this one on top!
Join us! 6 hour tours, for $60.00 per person, with a $475 minimum for private tours. Offered from mid-May through mid-October.
Lower Lake Tours
Lower Whitewater River and Falls, Wright Creek Falls, Thompson River and Falls.
Words don't do proper justice to the experience of spending time immersed in the cool, clear water of Lake Jocassee. This extraordinary adventure will have you swimming under waterfalls, floating over rock ledges submerged underwater and in oxygen-rich pools of wild and scenic rivers. It's about as much fun as a person can have.
Upper Lake Tours
Mill Creek Falls, Horsepasture River, Laurel Fork Creek and Falls, Toxaway River
This is it. This is what you’ve been waiting for. One waterfall after another, one cold, bracing swiming hole after another. National Geographic, eat your heart out. It doesn't get any more beautiful, any wilder than this.
Sky Falls Tour
This is an adventure that is a full day unto itself. It takes some energy to get to this towering and spectacular falls, creek-hiking all the way, but oh, is it ever worth the effort! Prepare to get your feet wet, and prepare for sheer wonder. This adventure tour is for the physically fit with a strong sense of adventure!
