There are still thru spots available for PADDLE GEORGIA 2015! Register TODAY!

Join us for Paddle Georgia’s first journey down a blackwater river—coastal Georgia’s Ogeechee River. Tea-colored water, white sand bars and stately cypress will welcome our rainbow-colored flotilla of canoe, kayaks and paddleboards as we journey 95 miles from Statesboro to Richmond Hill.

One of our country’s last remaining free-flowing rivers, the 294-mile-long Ogeechee cuts a path through the swampy bottomlands of Bulloch, Screven, Effingham, Chatham and Bryan counties. It is wild, beautiful and unpredictable. Its broad, open paddle path will suddenly devolve into myriad narrow, braided channels choked with deadfall only to open again and inexplicably roll over shoals in the midst of this sandy, swampy terrain. Finally, as it nears the coast, it spills into tidal marshes. Though its shores are dotted with fish camps, cabins and even stately homes, it is, thanks to its wide floodplain, remote and untamed.

Off river, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the river and the region through water monitoring opportunities, tours of area attractions and nightly activities at campsites that include entertainment, games and programs highlighting the river’s cultural and natural heritage. An educational adventure for the whole family, Paddle Georgia will show you Georgia as you’ve never seen it before.
