**If you are new to Airbnb, use this link for $15 off your experience as well as $40 towards an accommodation: https://abnb.me/e/3aolgZ25k2 (you must create a new account with the link)** We will provide everything you need for this experience, even the snacks! This is a guided tour of the Chattahoochee River. We can accommodate up to 4 guests; we have (4) one-person kayaks and (1) two-person canoe. If there are elderly, inexperienced, or children under 10 in your group, we recommend that they ride in the canoe with Troy. Many of our guests have never kayaked; we are very accustomed to new adventurers. The route we choose will be dependent on your comfort level, length of trip, and river conditions. The routes we prefer are less-populated, giving us better opportunities to see wildlife. We often see turtles, rainbow and brown trout, water fowl, deer, and the occasional otter. There are multiple sandy beaches and small rock islands along the river where we can stop for photos, snacks, and swimming. At the end of the tour, Troy and I will pull your boat up to the boat ramp and assist you out of your vessel. Don’t worry, we will clean and pack everything up, making this the easiest trip down the Chattahoochee. To request a different time/date, click on the “Contact Host” button below, then “Request Availability,” or send us a message; we are happy to accommodate.

Troy and I host this experience together- Troy has been a paddling and fly fishing tour guide for more than 10 years on the Chattahoochee. I am a local science and history teacher. Because Troy has extensive knowledge about the river, local wildlife, and local Native American history, he will conduct the majority of the tour. I will also make sure you are outfitted with everything from bug spray to a sun hat and take your photos throughout the trip. We are both CPR and first aid certified. We love being out in nature as much as possible, but the Chattahoochee is our local favorite.
