Tar River Life

We are working hard to stay open during this time. Families wanting to get out and enjoy some fresh air and getting exercise is always good. We are limiting our groups to 10 and are wiping down buses after each trip. Our bus will leave approximately each hour, this gives staff time to wipe down the seats on the bus. We will also be taking necessary measures to ensure the boats and equipment are cleaned.
