River Rat Run Altamaha River Kayak/ Canoe Excursion
Join us for the semi-annual Altamaha River Canoe/Kayak Excursion to be held on Saturday, June 3, 2023. Bring the whole family and enjoy a leisurely 12 mile paddle down the mighty Altamaha River from Towns Bluff Landing to Deen's Landing.
LUNCH STOP BENTON LEE'S STEAKHOUSE
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.
