A beautiful four-and-a-half-mile stretch of lazy river that winds through the serene Oconee National Forest, with some private homes dotting the banks. The Towaliga River enters the Ocmulgee at roughly the halfway point on this trip and the river remains pristine from the put in point at Highway 83 to the takeout at the Juliette River Park. This stretch is perfect for beginners as there are no rapids, but experienced paddlers appreciate the beauty of the Ocmulgee as it gently winds its way towards Macon and takes a breather from the shoals found up and downstream. River time is approximately 2 hours; expect to spend 2.5-3 hours including shuttle, paddle and life jacket fitting, and paddling instructions. On this guided tour you will be accompanied by an experienced kayaker, who will help with technique, provide assistance should you unexpectedly end up out of your boat, point out wildlife, act as cameraperson for group photos at your request, and generally work to improve your experience. Bring sunscreen, hat, water, snacks/lunch, sandals, water shoes, or a pair of old sneakers (no flip-flops, please), and a towel. $80.
