Altamha River / Fall Excursion
Help us kick off Baxley-Appling County's 2nd Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival with a Canoe/ Kayak Excursion to be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019. Bring the whole family and enjoy a leisurely 12 mile paddle down the might Altamaha River from Town's Bluff Landing to Deen's Landing.
Named one of the 75 Last Great Places left in the world by the Nature Conservancy, the river flows past rich bottomland forests, cypress swamps, and tidal marshes. Inhabited by a broad range of animals including rare freshwater mussels, egrets, wild turkeys, white-tailed deer, turtles and more! Crisp early mornings turn into sunny, warm, fall days making it the perfect time of year for one of our most popular river excursions.
Be sure to bring your canoes, kayaks, boats, jet ski, life jackets, sunscreen and drinks, and we will provide a hearty lunch at Benton Lee's Steakhouse.
