The Okatoma Creek in Southern Mississippi offers some fun opportunities for those here in South Alabama. With a quick drive out of Alabama we are on a small beautiful flowing creek. This creek has a nice pace so there will be no hard paddling. The best part of this creek though is the white water! Some shoals have created a few small white water rapids. Nothing more than a catagory one, but it's fun none the less! Jump in our boats and we will get you some white water time!

Tumbling Rock is one of the largest caves in the state of Alabama. The horizontal cave is 2.5 miles long (5 miles round trip) with the majority a walking passage. The cave is known as a beginner cave because of its ease of navigability and its few crawl spaces. The cave features a variety of cave features and formations. We will leave the Student Recreation Center at 2:00 pm and drive up to Tumbling Rock that day. Saturday we will spend the day inside the cave and then return on Sunday, stopping at another nearby cave. Two caves in one weekend!
