Chattahoochee River Kayak Rentals – Metro
Paddle the Chattahoochee River by kayak. NOC’s sit-on-top kayak rentals enable paddlers to create their own river experience with a workout or a relaxing float.
Good for both exercise and exploring, NOC’s stable sit-on-top river kayaks enable paddlers to create their own river experience: the boats’ combination of speed and maneuverability helps paddlers ferry across the river, cover long distances and even paddle upstream. Kayaks are a popular way to enjoy the scenic Chattahoochee River where participants can choose a more vigorous paddling work out or a relaxing float downriver.
Two types of sit-on-top 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.
- Sit on top kayaks are easy to maneuver and great for beginners or experienced paddlers.
- Choose a single or tandem kayak where you and a partner can share navigating and paddling.
- The Chattahoochee River offers a great escape with its lush wooded banks and mild currents.
- NOC Metro Atlanta Outpost is conveniently located in Sandy Springs in the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.
What to Expect
NOC kayak trips will take approximately 3 – 5 hours total with 2 – 4 hours spent on the river. The remaining time will be spent in trip preparation and shuttle from the take-out at Power’s Island.
Please plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to your reservation at NOC’s Metro Atlanta Outpost in Sandy Springs to allow time for parking and check-in. NOC guides will help guests get fitted for gear and can offer any instruction and tips on paddling before you head out on the shuttle or to the put-in depending on the trip chosen. From there, your group can paddle or float downriver enjoying the scenic views and mild currents from Johnson Ferry to Powers Island.
