NATURE INTERPRETIVE GUIDED TRIPS

This is a great venue for either individuals or groups who want a special experience. One of our knowledgeable guides will paddle with you while pointing out Florida's native flora and fauna as well as discussing some of the history and importance of the Hillsborough River. 

 

This 4-1/2 mile, downstream paddling trip through the Wilderness Park (a 16,000-acre preserve) takes approximately three hours. Feel free to bring along your own soft drinks and snacks or perhaps lunch. Don't forget your camera! 

We offer two nature interpretive guided trip options:

Open to the public - Wednesday at 11:00 a.m.

Private - Just your party on your schedule.

All nature interpretive guided trips require an advance reservation and prepayment. See specific trip for details.
