Some nature lovers braved the evening heat and experienced a little adventure on the Flit River tonight.

The Flint Riverquarium sponsors the Twilight paddle. And if you missed it this week, there will be four more Thursday night canoe trips down the river this summer.

All tours start at 6:30pm at the Georgia Power Dam and end at the Riverquarium where hors d'oeuvres are waiting to be served.

One of the paddlersBill Swan says, "The experience of being on the river is just something that a lot of people never had the opportunity to partake in".

Each trip lasts about 45 minutes and costs $35 for each 2-person canoe. The minimum age to take a trip is 21. The Riverquarium also sponsors longer family trips on Saturdays.

To reserve your spot call 639-2650
