Sandhill Crane Kayak Tour at Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge

  • Fitness level : 1


The Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge on the Tennessee River plays home to 12,000 migratory Sandhill Cranes as they spend their winters in the relatively mild temperatures around Chattanooga. The best way to witness these amazing animals? From the quiet calm of a kayak gliding along the river. This 5 mile paddle is great for anyone - no prior paddling experience required! We'll bring all the necessary gear and go over kayaking basics before getting started. Come see some of Earth's finest creatures with cheery and adventurous new friends. It's going to be so much fun!
