Cole Watkins Tours


Stallings Island Route


The ProjectCole was assigned a particular project his junior year of college. The project asked the undergrads to build a business, from the ground up, that would survive in today’s economy. After dreading the assignment at first, Cole decided to pick a topic that not only entertained people, but also involved something he loved. Thus, the Cole Watkins Tours business plan was born. Cole always felt the people of Augusta never took full advantage of the beautiful river sitting in our backyard.  After receiving an “A” and encouragement from his professors, Cole opened CWT on May 26, 2011.The CompanyCWT offers two main options; rentals or guided tours with Cole himself. CWT offers many routes along the Savannah river ranging from Lake Thurmond to Riverview Park in North Augusta. Some of the more popular routes include the Stalling’s Island trip, the Augusta Canal, Betty’s Branch, and the Rapids. The business is ran year around and tailored to the customer’s needs and demands. No matter your age or experience, Cole is the guide for you. Many adults and children all get their start, kayaking with Cole!Giving BackWhat good is a reputation if you cannot give back to those less fortunate.  CWT is a firm believer in supporting local fundraisers. Gift cards for tours and rentals have been donated to many charities such as: Helping Hands, Molini Foundation, Kickin’ for a Kidney, I’m Aware, Roast on the River and others! We like to encourage everyone to check out these great charities!Any questions can be asked at (706)840-0433 or emailed to Call Cole today and schedule your next exciting adventure!!!
