Tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about Dead Lake. Explained a lot of history and why it is known as Dead Lake. Cypress trees were beautiful even though they were dead. Would be great for families.

We had a wonderful tour of the Deal Lakes with Matt as our guide. It was so unique and he was extremely knowledgeable of the area and wildlife. It was fun, educational and relaxing. I highly recommend it - you will not be disappointed.
