What we’re about
Our group is for people who are interested in learning how to kayak but just do not know where to start. And for people who have a little experience but want to improve and get on the water more.
No boat? No problem, we have them. All necessary equipment is part of our package, We offer classes taught by American Canoe Association (ACA) certified instructors with an emphasis on having fun while staying safe. Our sessions are not in a class room but are taught under the trees and on the river in your own personal floating work station. (a kayak of course)
We also guide fun adventure trips on southern water ways. All trips are lead by certified guides.
There is no age limitation on this sport, people are kayaking across the country and around the world from age 4 to 80! We will also be offering guided trips on various rivers throughout the year for folks who do not have boats or who just do not feel ready to paddle on their own.

- Paddle with Manatees, February 25th to March 2nd5361 Circle Dr, Spring Hill, FL$900.00
If you missed out on our December trip (IT SOLD OUT), here is your chance to make up for the missed opportunity.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT AS OF 1/7/2024: This trip WAS SOLD OUT, but we still have folks interested in joining us so we rented a second house across the Weeki Wachee River from house one. We now have room for a few more lucky paddlers.
We will be staying in a two very nice houses. One is directly on the Weeki Wachee River, the second one is a short distance down a canal but across the canal is an undeveloped wild life area. Both are amazing locations.
We will paddle from the back yard some days for sure. During the week we will also paddle the Silver River (chance to encounter the wild monkeys), Chassahowitzka River, Rainbow River, and possibly the Weeki Wachee. What we end up doing might change due to the weather of course.
Check in will be Sunday February the 25th and check out on Saturday March 2nd. That gives us 5 full days to paddle different rivers or to play tourists.
Leave winter behind, come with us to Florida!!
We might have opportunities to swim with the Manatees,,, it gets chilly. Wet suits, mask and snorkels recommended. If you have never experienced a close encounter with these gentle giants you have really missed out.

- Spring in the Okefenokee Swamp, 3 Days of FUN.Stephen C Foster State Park, Fargo, GA$295.00
Respond on here, BUT YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED UNTIL YOU Click this link and complete the process: Click this link to register for the trip.
For those of you who have done a swamp trip with us in the past, we are changing things a bit. Instead of staying at the Eco Lodge in Fargo (18 miles from the park), we have 6 cabins reserved inside the park. (All six cabins have two bedrooms). This puts us closer to the action and will allow us to add some activities not available when we stay in Fargo. (Stay tuned, but one added event will be a twilight boat ride to see some gator eyes) We are also checking in on Friday instead of Thursday which will allow you to drive down Friday after work and get home Sunday before dark, if necessary. If you leave Sunday you just miss the optional paddle on the way home.
Come with us and witness the Swamp as she awakens from her winter nap. This time of year is magical.
Stephen C. Foster State Park is about a 5 hour drive from Atlanta.
We will see the swamp in its' spring glory. Hopefully WITHOUT THE MOSQUITOES!!!! And air conditioned cabins make the nights comfortable!!
The Okefenokee contains many types of habitat – islands, lakes, cypress forests, scrub-shrub areas and open ‘wet’ prairies. We might see sandhill cranes and bald eagles.
In May the swamp is really coming alive after waking from her "winter" nap. As we paddle through the swamp, keep a lookout for alligators, otters, racoons, deer, white ibis, herons, egrets and maybe even a black bear.
FRIDAY is check in, then happy hour and a catered meal.
SATURDAY we will all paddle from Stephen Foster State Park. We will be leaving the boats to explore some islands and have lunch on wooden decks. At days end, happy hour and a catered meal.
SUNDAY you will have a choice of paddling a different section of the swamp OR experiencing a short hike over a board walk and then seeing the swamp from a 3 story watch tower. After leaving the tower we will take a private guided motor boat tour which allows us to go father into the swamp than we can go in our kayaks. At days end, happy hour and a catered meal. If you opt for the guided boat tour the cost will be $35 per person.
MONDAY you will have an optional paddle on at a black water lake on the way back to Atlanta. We will get off the water early enough Monday for you to drive home before dark.
We will be sharing the cabins, but of course not sharing beds!
Since none of the cabins have single beds filling each of them is going to get tricky. I know many of you will be coming alone and will want to share a cabin so we will pair you up with a same sex roommate, each in a double bed.
Because of the bed situation we should have around 20 people on this trip. PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH ME AS WE TRY TO ASSIGN BEDS AND MAXIMIZE PARTICIPATION. If you want to join us on the trip and make your own arrangements to stay somewhere else, camping, hotel, etc., that is fine also. You will simply need to purchase an event ticket and let me know where you will be staying. Even if you stay off site, your evening meals are included.
VERY IMPORTANT: HOW MANY TICKETS DO YOU NEED?
1. Everyone needs an Event ticket regardless of where you are staying. This ticket includes three evening meals and three days of paddling.
2. If you are staying in the CABINS with us you will need a second ticket. This is just for your bed in a cabin.
3. If you need a rental boat you will need a third ticket.
4. If you are doing the optional guided boat tour you will need a fourth ticket.
Cost of the trip will be $295 per adult, $95 per child under 16. That fee will include a catered meal Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. You will be responsible for breakfast and lunch. The kitchens make that easy! (This fee does not include your cabin, kayak rental, or boat tour)
If you want a private bedroom with 1 double bed the cost is $395 for all 3 nights. Only two available (There will be other folks in the second bedroom)
If you want a private bedroom with 2 double beds the cost is $590 for all three nights. Four available. (There will be folks in the second bedroom)
If you are coming by yourself and want to be matched up with a room mate (same sex, separate beds) the cost will be $295 for three nights. If you have a preferred room mate let me know when you register and I will make sure you are paired up.
Tandem (2 person) sit on top kayaks will be available to rent for $125 for the weekend.
Single kayaks (sit inside) kayaks will be available to rent for $95 for the weekend.
Optional Sunday Guided Motor Boat tour is $35.00 per person.
