Probably our coolest tour! Enjoy the thrill of exploring ancient cypress swamps in search of one HUGE Cypress – Alabama’s very own Champion Cypress. With a 27 foot base, the Champion Cypress is Alabama’s largest and an amazing site to behold. Not for the faint of heart or athletically impaired, you are likely to encounter some wild beasts of the delta on this adventure. Accessible only by boat, this is a 4 hour guided tour that involves approximately 3 hours of kayaking and a reasonable hike through the swamp, which may or may not be dry. During this tour, your guide will also introduce you to the fauna and flora of the middle Delta’s cypress swamps and some of the Delta’s colorful history.
