Kayaking Geogia's Coast
Kayaking Georgia Experience sea kayaking adventures with Altamaha Coastal Tours in one of the most beautiful and remote areas in the South East. Located near St. Simon's Island and 45 minutes South of Savannah, the Altamaha River BioReserve is a world of wilderness and natural wonder. Bottle Nosed dolphins, manatee, otters, alligators, deer, mink, eagles, osprey, and thousands of sea-birds make this area a best kept secret. Trips range from kayaking through black-water swamps of cypress knees and giant old growth forests to camping on deserted islands with white-sand beaches. Come explore for a half day excursion or get away for a multi-day adventure in what has been called a "The World's Last Great Places ". Kayak rentals and Guided tours are offered year round on the semi tropical Georgia Coast.

Canoe Vast tracts of land, barrier marsh islands and swamps are protected by the federal and state gov'ts as well as the Nature Conservancy, corporate and private citizens. These combined areas are referred to by the Nature Conservancy as the Altamaha River Bio reserve. Another important link to the area's health is the Altamaha River Keepers.

       A site of historical interest is the new site to the William Bartram Trail through the Southeast United States in the Mid 1700's.    His travels through Georgia are a document describing in depth the Altamaha River and it's plants and animals before the settling of European settlers.
Buffalo Swamp- beautiful and easy paddling


Wild and Scenic Off Shore Adventures

a unique freshwater tidal swamp with virgin old growth giant cypress trees.

an over night camping trip using the state approved primitive camping area,

Buffalo SwampĀfs Otter and Cathead Creek, our favorite half-day trips,
display the transition from the rare fresh water tidal swamp ecosystems
to the brackish then to salt marsh environment in an easy half-day paddle.  

Wolf Island Wilderness Area, Blackbeard Island Wilderness Area as well as
offshore Queen Island and Sapelo Island have paddling & camping opportunities
but require either permits or permissions from property owners.

The sheer diversity of flora and fauna in the Altamaha RiverBioReserve allows
the visitor a variety of experiences and possibilities for wildlife sightings including
dolphin, otter, mink, wood storks, spoonbills, swallow tail kites, osprey, bald eagles,
shore birds, night herons, painted buntings, raccoons, sea turtles, manatee,
and the top predator - the American Alligator.

and marsh day trips or camping trip are available as guided and self-guided .

Over 120 miles of protected River corridor ends at Wolf Island,
a vast marsh island looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean.
