ADVENTURE TOURS: June through Labor Day


This is it. This is what you’ve been waiting for. Travel the world if you want, but exhilarating, deep-in- the-wilderness, eye-poppingly beautiful outdoor adventure is right here, right in our back yard. 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. Adventure Tours are warm weather, in-and-out of the water activities, as we creek-hike our way into the most remote places you’ll ever see in this part of the world. It’s a physical (and thrilling!) day, and therefore limited strictly to the young at heart.

Adventure Tours are 6 hour tours, for $75 per person, with a $595 minimum for private tours. 
PRIVATE ADVENTURE TOURS AVAILABLE ANYTIME.
