Sparkleberry Swamp Tour | This Weekend! Book Now

Saturday, January 9 & Sunday, January 10

Wind through a maze cypress and tupelo trees on this paddling trip to Sparkleberry Swamp in Rimini.  The mirror-like reflections of the blackwater offer a mystical experience as we paddle though this forest suspended in the floodplain.  There are no maps- you just have to trust your guides.

“I know of no other place in the Lowcountry that is as mystical or up-close-and-personal with the waterborne forest as Rimini.”  -Chris Crolley

Unlike the other blackwater tours that we offer, this swamp is not tidal and the trees are perpetually submerged. It is a haven for waterfowl, alligators, turtles and botanical diversity.

Come out with us as we explore the wonder that is Sparkleberry Swamp in Rimini!

*In the email that we sent out, we said that we were using canoes for this trip.  It will actually be kayaks!  Give us a call if you have any questions– no experience needed. We’ll teach you everything you need to know to have a great trip!


Photos in gallery were taken by Tom Blagden, Jr. in 2017.  Check out the books he has published on the Grand Canyon, ACE Basin  and the Lowcountry.
