We sure do!  We have Delta tours on "The Pelican", a 25 seater pontoon boat, and we also have canoes and kayaks.

Five Rivers Delta Safaris has pontoon boat tours of the beautiful lower delta.  Adults are $22, Seniors $19 and Children (3-10) are $14. 

Five Rivers Delta Safaris also rents canoes and kayaks for half days or full days, and offers guided or unguided kayak tours. 

We also have the Bartram Canoe Launch that anyone with their own canoe or kayak is welcome to use during business hours:  http://www.outdooralabama.com/outdoor-adventures/5rivers/facilities/bartram.cfm
