To prepare for yo

     here is a quick checklist of
items to bring:
    1. Your lunch (depending upon  
        trip time and duration)
    2. Non-alcoholic beverages
    3. Sun block
    4. Proper water attire & a 
        change of clothes 
    5. Water shoes (old sneakers 
         will do just fine)
    6. Sun glasse

 It's always good to dress in layers.
That is a great w
ay to maximize 
comfort. During the warm months
bring an extra set of clothes and
a towel if you decide to cool off

Photographers Tour
For the serious photographer to
access some of the most pristine
waterways early in the morning
 or late in the evening when photo
taking is at it's best. So, for the
photographer who wants to hire
a guide for the day there's a
package that includes being
introduced to the wildlife and
waters in a tandem kayak.
You paddle very little, let the
guide take you to the wildlife
and take photographs.
Half day or Full day 

ken 3

Silver River (above)
Exceptionally scenic! Some
twists and turns of this river
can reach depths of 25' and is
so clear that you can see the
bottom. You will hone your
paddling skills going upstream
 but a first magnitude spring
 makes the trip back a breeze.
 You'll have a chance to view
 a bounty of wildlife: wading
 birds, hawks, owls, raccons,
 wild pigs and more. Level of
Difficulty: Must be in good shape
or you will be when you're done.
