Shuttle Service

Have your own boat and want a shuttle to either Pope's Ferry or Amerson? We can do that! If there is space on the bus during one of the trips scheduled you can put your boat on it, or you can get on one of the scheduled shuttles. The scheduled shuttle will only go if there is a minimum number of boats, so if you're a single paddler, call and find out if there are others going too. 

Pope's Ferry Shuttle:  Leave your car at Amerson River Park. Shuttle leaves at nine, so be there with your boat no later than 8:50 a.m.  Cost is $20 per person for those shuttling.  There must be a minimum of three persons going to Pope's in order for this shuttle to occur.

Amerson River Park Shuttle: Leave your car at the Spring Street Bridge take out and the shuttle leaves at the times listed above for the Quick Floats, so be there with your boat no later than 10 minutes before trip time.  Cost is $15 on weekends. Need a minimum of two persons in order to run this shuttle.


Planning to boat the Ocmulgee for several days and need us to shuttle your vehicle? We can do that, too.  We go as far north as Jackson Lake. Prices depend upon the number of cars and the miles traveled.  Call us and we can discuss the various options available.



“We went kayaking for my birthday today and had an absolute amazing time! The owners are completely wonderful and went above and beyond for us! After our long trek, we were greeted with ice cold lemonade and brownies, which was the cherry on top. Totally amazing place with the best prices around! We will be making monthly trips!”  August 1, 2015

Quick Float

A group of friends and I decided last minute to go float a river. We wanted to float the Flint river but the condition of it were too low and we would have ended up walking most of it instead. So on a whim I did lots of research and we decided to try the Ocmulgee. I called and spoke with Kathleen. Right off the bat I knew I made the right decision as she explained several locations for our group to put in but say that the best place was to put in a Wise Creek and pull out at Hwy 83 because of river conditions. The only thing we needed was a shuttle to the put in location. Even as a last minute trip Kathleen was very accommodating and said she would meet us at the pull out point and shuttle our own boats and the group to the put in. We met her and loaded up quickly. On the drive to the put in she was very knowledgeable about he area we were driving through and made it an interesting drive. She put us on an 8 mile float that was an absolute blast as we had the river to ourselves. We made the trip last about 10 hours and will definitely be back to do it again. I have to say I liked it better then the flint river. Thank you Kathleen for the great experience. September 2017
