PADDLE WITH US IN MACON, GA
Ocmulgee Outdoor Expeditions is owned by Kathleen O’Neal, who grew up in Macon. She canoed the Ocmulgee with her parents as a teenager and kayaked it while in law school at Mercer.
She worked on the Ocoee, Chattooga, and Nantahala rivers as a raft guide while in college, and a few years ago she decided to take her love of the outdoors and passion for paddling and open a business. It’s much more than a business though; it’s a chance to introduce others to the beauty of the Ocmulgee River and make sure that they have a wonderful and safe time, too.
Discover the Ocmulgee with Ocmulgee Outdoor Expeditions. We want you to have a fun time on the river! Join us for an expedition and explore Macon’s backyard. Floating the river is a wonderful way to see a different side of Macon.
