Canoeing Trips

River Canoe Trips

Each trip is led by a CNC naturalist and offers a unique introduction to the ecology of the Chattahoochee River. Your naturalist will enlighten you as to the cultural and natural history of the river, citing important ecological relationships and environmental issues that affect this endangered river while allowing you to enjoy the peaceful qualities of the river.

Canoe Guides are all CPR/First Aid Certified and are experienced paddlers and naturalists. Don’t worry if you are new to canoeing – CNC provides all equipment – canoe, paddles, and personal flotation device (PFDs) – for participants. These trips are suitable for both beginning and advanced paddlers (ages 6 and up.) Want to find out what you may see out on the ‘Hooch? Book a canoe experience with the button below.
