We had a great time. A few of us were first timers so it made it special. Even though it was winter it was very good weather. The houseboat was nice and the host was very friendly and attentive which makes the experience even more relaxing....Thank you Foxtale

A wonderful winter experience on Foxtale 1. We has varied weather conditions and really enjoyed them all. The river and bird life was spectacular and some early morning fog was fantastic. Loved the trip and would recommend this for a great experience.
