Book a private session and you'll get this entire experience all to yourself-and up to three additional friends or family members. You'll enjoy more one-on-one time with the guide/instructor, more flexibility throughout the session, and a more personal experience for everyone who joins you. Price covers all costs for up to 4 people. Experience a majestic wildlife experience from the seat of a kayak, your REI guides will lead you through the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge. You will witness 12,000 Sandhill Cranes, these 4 foot tall 10 pound birds travel from Canada and Alaska to spend the winter on Hiwassee Island, the second largest wintering population in the Southeast. We'll bring all the necessary gear and go over kayaking basics before getting started.
