Questions Comments: We are looking for happy, energetic people who are willing to work outside in the heat of summer while entertaining lots of new people! Blackwater Paddle & Pedal Adventures operates out of the Bucktown Village Store, site of the first known act of defiance in the life of UGRR Conductor Harriet Tubman. Our tours are certified by the National Parks Service UGRR Network to Freedom therefore you will be trained by us to be able to perform as a guide for this service
