Come to the ACE Basin where history meets nature! The ACE was once a cypress/tupelo swamp forest and is now a tidal freshwater marsh, creating a perfect habitat for freshwater flora and fauna. In the past, rice farms were established and rice was grown for almost two centuries, setting the stage for the beginning of the civil war and the current Gullah Heritage of the Sea Islands. Your tour knowledgeable guides will help you understand and appreciate the rich local history, while paddling through historic canals and exploring an abandoned rice field along diked creeks and rivers.
