Once there you can experience an exciting outdoor adventure or explore the quiet scenery of the Hillsborough River, all from the safety of your kayak or canoe.

So whether you're going it alone or having a family outing you'll be sure to have an experience you'll never forget. Various trips are offered so check out the website for details.
