Take a peaceful ride in our unsinkable kayaks

Historic Banning Mills offers exciting kayaking adventures!

Enjoy a peaceful trip in our unsinkable kayaks. Our kayaks are safer than a boat or canoe, are hard to turn over, and no roll training is required. These kayaks provide a relaxing platform to observe nature’s wonders and the native heritage of our rivers and creek. Enjoy kayaking in the Chattahoochee River or in our lake. Go back in time and paddle in the same areas as the Creek and Cherokee Indians did generations ago.

Things to know to plan Your Trip

Kayaking Trips are available from March to Mid November, weather dependent. We reserve the right to cancel trips due to inclement weather and to substitute treks due to water levels. A designated adult must accompany minors. Kayaking does require advance notice.

Bring water and snacks especially for the longer treks. Have in some type of waterproof container. Wear some type of water or tennis shoe. Wear sunscreen and bring some too! We encourage you to wear a hat. Insect repellant is helpful. Come ready to have fun!!
