PLEASE RESERVE KAYAKS 24 HOURS OR MORE IN ADVANCE (please note that if we have other reservations, our booking system will be open for reservations without requiring a buffer time, so if it’s a last minute plan give it a try anyway 😉 AS OF 2021 OUR *ENDPOINT* FOR THE CANAL ROUTE IS AT THE MILL VILLAGE TRAILHEAD (109 Eve St Augusta, Ga 30904- gravel lot just before Kroc Center). 


*There is a $5 deposit per kayak due upon booking, which goes toward the price of your rental bringing each boat down $5 when you pay your remaining balance due upon arrival of your reservation. Reservations must be made at least 2 hours prior to when you’d like to come. Deposits are refundable if you cancel 12 hours or more in advance or in the event of inclement weather.

Every capable adult (18 years or older) is required to fill out and sign their own waiver, which we have on site. Anyone under the age of 18 is required to have a parent or legal guardian sign consent (via our waiver) for them to kayak. If your parent/guardian does not plan to accompany you, please download the waiver and have them fill it out!  Also, please have them text our number (7068325323) with a photo ID accompanied by a text providing written consent for any minor they are responsible for, listed by name, to kayak that day!  >CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD WAIVER<

We also encourage bigger groups to download and sign waivers prior to showing up for rentals as it speeds up the process exponentially!



Savannah Rapids Kayak Rental is conveniently located alongside the historic Augusta Canal inside the Savannah Rapids Park and Pavilion. We have a launch site at our location and friendly staff to help you take off and get started on our most popular route down the Augusta Canal to our pick up location at the Mill Village Trailhead right alongside the canal at 109 Eve Street 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. This roughly 5 mile trip is perfect for beginners with a nice easy current assisting you; it takes people about 2 to 2 and a half hours on average to complete. We provide everything you need except for water, sunscreen, and maybe a zip lock bag for your valuables!
