Rafting, Kayaking & Tubing in Atlanta, Georgia
Beginning in Northeast Georgia, the scenic Chattahoochee River flows through the heart of metro Atlanta to the Gulf of Mexico. The river's prime downtown location and its protected natural environment make it one of Atlanta's most-loved outdoor attractions and a valuable recreational resource for millions of Atlanta residents and visitors, offering paddling, fishing and trails for running and hiking.
NOC's two Chattahoochee outposts at Johnson Ferry and Powers Island in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area offer river trips and rentals for tubing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), rafting and inflatable kayaks. With half-day and full-day rentals available, you and your group can explore up to 8 miles of flatwater and Class I-II whitewater.
Home to over 240 bird species and an abundance of plant life, the Chattahoochee is beautiful in all seasons. From the graceful blue heron to colorful trout lilies, redbuds, azaleas and fall's changing leaves, there's always something to enjoy. Shooting the Hooch is one of the best things to do in Atlanta, and NOC is the only outfitter conveniently located inside the national park.
