CANAL ROUTE:

Savannah Rapids Kayak Rental is 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 and get started on our most common 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 hours on average  to complete. We provide everything you need except for water, sunscreen, and maybe a zip lock bag for your valuables!
