The blackwater creek takes on a whole new adventure in the dark! Come join us for a 2-hour fun guided kayak tour through the swampy wetland of blackwater Lofton Creek when the sun goes down! Who knows what kind of wildlife we'll find lurking in the dark... beavers? Alligators?  Maybe even the... SWAMP APE???  Only one way to find out!

Grab your glow sticks, glow necklaces and any other fun lights you want to bring along for this paddle in the dark! All kayaks will be equipped with the regulatory white navigational light, and at least one guide will have a spotlight to use on the water during the tour.  Join us for a creepy good time!
