Wow...what a great way to explore this amazing area. Brooks was a fabulous guide...so knowledgeable about the area. And his first mate, Myca, is the best boat dog in all of jocassee lake. This was a 4 hour ride of beautiful views and pleasant company. It's a great daytime activity!!! Would love to do it again...especially in the fall.

My husband and I enjoyed the 4 hr Sat tour on April 8/17. Both Kay and Brooks were very knowledgeable regarding the history and local flora and fauna. The waterfalls were beautiful and the ride was very comfortable. We highly recommend taking this tour. You won't be disappointed. Thank you for the memorable day!

We went out on April 12 on a beautiful and calm day. Our tour guide, Kay, was very passionate and a great story teller. She did a wonderful job of intertwining the detailed information about the lake and it's surroundings and made the tour fun and easy going. We would definitely do this tour again!

We are so happy we did this tour. We were visiting from CA and heard this lake was a must-see when in the area. We have two kids, a boy age 12 and a girl age 9. Both of them enjoyed exploring the waterfalls and being in such a beautiful place. We will definitely do it again this summer.

This is one of our favorite things to do in this area of South Carolina. This is a boat tour of Lake Jocassee, filled with sight-seeing opportunities that include waterfalls, seasonal blossoms, birds and even a couple of stops for exploring. Our guide gives historical information on this beautiful lake, takes you into places most people will never see, explains... More

Lake Jocassee is beautiful this time of year as it gets ready for its long winter snooze. The leaves are exquisite in hues of yello, orange and red. They seem to glow as a last hurrah of the fall gently sliding into winters' chill. Our guide, Rick, was obviously in love with the lake and the wonders it revealed to... More
