THE only NATURLIST-LED TOURS of LAKE JOCASSEE and the JOCASSEE GORGES.  THE DIFFERENCE IS KNOWLEDGE, LOVE OF PLACE, PASSION


OUR TOURS

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 that makes 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.

All JLT tours are handicapped accessible. $30 per person, $250 minimum per boat for privately scheduled tours
