Read A Few Testimonials

Awesome experience! The boats are easy to drive and fun. We took the longer 2.5 hour tour and saw the ponies and abandoned mansion. I would recommend the longer tour and a morning tour if it's hot out. We did stop at an island to explore and jump in the water. We had kids/teens with us and they liked it as well. This is one of the best outdoor adventures we've had.


Back Water Adventure is one of the best attractions on the Island. We enjoyed being able to skim across the waters around the island on a 2-man catamaran. Tom showed us how to operate the catamaran and then guided us while in his own watercraft. He was an excellent tour guide; taking us on a 30 mile excursion to explore areas we would never have seen otherwise. He knows the waterways like the back of his hand! The tour is about 2 1/2 hours long. Bring your camera and sunscreen and enjoy!


We went on the 2.5 hours guided trip starting at 2:30 PM. It was a perfect day with perfect weather. Our guide, Chris, was exceptional. He was very nice and knowledgeable. The boats are a blast to drive. We were able to see Dolphin, strand feeding in the marsh areas. That was awesome to see this learned behavior, where Dolphin herd groups of fish up into the grass and beach themselves whilst eating fish. We saw wild horses on Cumberland Island. We would highly recommend the trip to anyone. The 2.5 hours tour we think would be best.
