Description

We offer fun and easy canoe and kayak trips for families and groups of all ages – or by yourself! Rent the finest quality canoes and kayaks for a scenic float with gentle rapids down the Chattahoochee River from Island Ford, Garrard’s Landing or Don White for a delightful paddle to Azalea Park.  Reservations are recommended. Children under 18 must have written parental permission. The National Park service will not allow anyone under the age of 5 on the river. 

Shuttles run from Azalea Park to Island Ford and Don White from 10am-3pm during peak season (June & July), and during off season from 10am-1pm on weekends  (March, April, May, August, September, October). Garrard’s Landing trips only go once a day and leave at 10am on Saturdays and Sundays. We also take groups to Garrard’s Landing with a pre-paid reservation during the week.  At Azalea Park, you can also rent canoes and kayaks by the hour. During peak season, the last hourly rental is at 6pm and everyone must exit the water by 7pm. During the off season, the last hourly rental is at 5 pm and everyone must exit the water by 6 pm. We also offer guided trips as well as lessons for our canoes and kayaks.

All trips include paddles and life jackets. Shuttle bus is extra. Parking is free at Azalea Drive but Chattahoochee River National Park requires you to pay $3 per car. Trip times depend on river conditions and how much you wish to paddle.
