Augusta's River Region has some of the most diverse paddling from the Savannah River to the Augusta Canal, but one of the coolest kayaking experiences includes views of downtown Augusta. 

Some of Augusta's most notable structures can be seen along the Savannah River including the Augusta Riverwalk, which is a great location to people watch between paddle strokes. The 5th Street Marina, Augusta Marriott, and Georgia Cyber Center. 

Another little-known fact is Augusta's proximity to South Carolina. Kayaking the Savannah River also includes views of North Augusta, South Carolina's riverside homes. 

Where to start

Downtown Augusta is home to outfitters, Two Dudes and A Kayak Rentals who offer amazing kayaking experiences. Take a Sunset Tour, Fireworks Tour, Sunrise Tour, and more. 

The tours are available for all skill levels.

Important: Safety first! If you rent a kayak and/or go out without a guide, practice safety first. Be mindful of the water conditions, weather, and tides to avoid potential problems.
