Conveniently located alongside the historic Augusta Canal at the Savannah Rapids Park and Pavilion, we provide kayak rentals for Augusta locals and tourists alike at very reasonable pricing. We have a launch site at our location and friendly staff to help you take off, as well as a pick up place at Lake Olmstead where our staff will help you out of your kayaks, load them up on our trailers, and provide shuttle services back to the Savannah Rapids Pavillion if needed. We also provide transportation services from the North Augusta boat ramp back to our rental site if you would prefer to kayak down part of the Savannah River, however the river is dependent upon the water level. If the water level is running below 6,000 cubic feet per second(cfs), we will not allow our kayaks on the river; the river may also be dangerously high (over 18,000 cfs), in which case we will not allow people to rent kayaks for the river. Feel free to check the water level at

We do not recommend the river for novice paddlers and will not allow our tandem kayaks in the river under any circumstance.
