THE only NATURLIST-LED TOURS of LAKE JOCASSEE and the JOCASSEE GORGES. THE DIFFERENCE IS KNOWLEDGE, LOVE OF PLACE, PASSION
Every tour of Lake Jocassee is uniquely special. We just never know what we're going to see! It could be Oconee bells blooming, or a bald eagle soaring overhead, or multitudes of butterflies puddling on a rock. Some things, though, we can count on. Do you like waterfalls? Lake Jocassee has waterfalls we can swim under! Do you favor wild mountain rivers? Pristine wilderness rivers flow into and provide the cold, pure water of Lake Jocassee. Enjoy fall’s color explosion, winter’s solitude and abundant waterfowl (starring the ethereal loon), and spring’s rebirth of nature. And of course, summer is for swimming and playing in the waterfalls! You’ll never know what to expect, and you’ll never be disappointed.

FULL MOON RISING TOURS
Once a month, on the evening of the rising of the full moon, join us for a tranquil, convivial three hours or so on the lake. We'll visit some waterfalls, wander up a wild river or two, then settle in for the rising of the full moon. Speed range -- dawdle to pokey. We'll bring along the end-of-the-day refreshments. $45 per person
