Discover the sublime joy of a hassle-free family paddle on this 3-mile kayak tour on Fort Yargo State Park Lake less than an hour outside Atlanta. We'll do all the planning, packing and gear-hauling so you can focus on enjoying the time outside with your family. No kayaking experience required - our instructors will cover all the basics and safety tips before we launch. As we paddle the calm waters, relax and enjoy this natural refuge while surrounded by an oak-pine-hickory forest. Keep your eyes out for the plentiful water birds including geese, ducks, and great blue herons. Back on dry land, everyone will head home with newfound skills, full of excitement for your next outdoor adventure together! We can't wait to see you on the water!
