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 ora 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.
