Eco-tours offer unique look at south Mississippi's natural beauty

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Eco-tourism is a unique opportunity for families to get out and experience nature first hand.  Kathy Wilkinson and her husband Jeff own and operate Eco-Tours of South Mississippi.  Together, they have more than 30 years experience on the water. 

Eco-Tours of South Mississippi is a traveling business, meaning they come to you.  Whether you want to tour the Pascagoula River, kayak the bays and bayous, or head out to the islands, their Boston Whaler can make it happen.

The Wilkinsons offer everything from a two, four, and eight hour tour, to overnight excursions in the swamp.  For now, their tour boat seats six, but next month they are getting a new, custom built boat to accommodate up to 26 guests.  Kathy Wilkinson says she's excited about the new boat because it will mean she will be able to host wedding parties.
