Intensity: Float Trip
Get up close and personal with Mother Nature as you navigate the Chattahoochee in a kid-friendly inflatable kayak, or “ducky.” NOC is the only Atlanta river outfitter offering these fun, accessible boats. Splash, float and paddle down the river while enjoying a ride that’s both stable and nimble. You’ll have full control of your trip making it easy to customize your experience: stay dry and explore every nook and cranny of the riverbank, or have an intense workout through splashing waves. It’s your choice.
Two types of inflatable kayaks rentals are available: the one-person model or the two-person where you’ll get to share paddling, navigating (and a little team building) with your partner. The age requirement for one-person models is 9+ years and the age requirement for the two-person models is 5+ years. The kayak rental includes a ducky, paddles, shuttle, personal flotation device (PFD) and small dry-bag.
