This will be a 5-hour float trip on the Tallapoosa River near Tallapoosa, GA. This portion of the river has a slight current with several shoals but no major rapids. We will be utilizing the services of Lazy River Rentals for this trip.

Lazy River Rentals offers rental boats and a shuttle service at the following rates: $25.00 for single person kayaks, $45.00 for double person kayaks, and $10.00 to shuttle private boats. They will put us in at the Broad Street Bridge in Tallapoosa and we will float to their takeout located at 131 Doe Valley Road south of US Hwy 78 near the AL/GA state line.

The shuttle for this trip leaves the outfitter at 9:00 am (cst) / 10:00 am (est).
