|The Trip Down
the Little River
From the point of
departure to River John's down the river is approximately 7
1/2 miles. For those who are set on paddling straight through
the trip, you can make it in 3 to 3 and 1/2 hours. Most people
take a little longer and enjoy stopping from time to time
along the river. There are rope swings over the river in some
places but we caution you to beware and if you do use the
swings you will be doing so at your own risk. Taking a snack
or lunch and stopping to eat on the river bank is enjoyed by
some, so again, whatever your pleasure... just be careful.
|Our Canoes are
durable and as safe as those doing the paddling They seat one
or two persons. You will be briefed upon your departure about
safety on the Little River, and some canoeing do's and don'ts.
Safety is our primary concern but accidents do happen and can
generally be attributed to the people manning the canoes.
Please be wise and your trip will be an enjoyable one! We want
you to return because of the fun you had on the river.
The major portion
of the river you will be traveling is calm and serene. Then we
have the occasional places in the river where small rapids can
be quite thrilling. If you are looking for rapids which are
dangerous in nature then this is not the canoe trip for you.
Just about anyone of any age can make this trip and have a
great time doing so. We cater to those who's pace on the river
is a little slower and want to enjoy the river, it's banks
covered with flora and fauna, turtles, birds and the
occasional glimpse of other wildlife.
It is also a very versatile activity-from canoe camping to
whitewater canoeing. Canoes come in many different sizes and
shapes to meet different needs. Regardless of the type of
canoeing you plan to do, you will need some instruction prior
to your departure. We go over the basics of canoeing with all
new individuals or groups before they start their trip. Canoeing
is one of the most accessible paddle sports. It is a great
activity for people of all ages. Canoes are also great for
cruising the lake, looking for the perfect fishing hole or
taking extended day trips on larger lakes and rivers.
