Float, spin or just kick back in bliss as you shoot the Hooch in the Georgia sunshine. NOC rents dual-chambered and closed-bottom tubes for both the float trip from Johnson Ferry to Powers Island and the Class I-II whitewater trip from Powers Island to Paces Mill. Both Atlanta tubing trips showcase the Chattahoochee's colorful granite outcroppings (how the river got its name), wooded banks and cool, gentle current. Because NOC is the national park's only on-site outfitter all trips begin and end at NOC's outposts inside the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.
Each tube accommodates one person and is offered in a small or large size. Tube rental includes tube, shuttle, personal flotation device (PFD) and one small dry-bag per group.
NOC’s Chattahoochee Outpost is hosted in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNA) by the National Park Service. With on-site river access and the only outfitter in CRNA, NOC offers guests a unique view of the Chattahoochee River.
Guest amenities include:
- Clean Restrooms
- Picnic Tables
- Outpost store with t-shirts, snacks, drinks, sunblock and other river essentials.
- On-site walking, running and biking trails.
