About Ocmulgee Outdoor Expeditions
Ocmulgee Outdoor Expeditions is Macon's original and locally-owned canoe and kayak rental service for the Ocmulgee River. The Ocmulgee is gorgeous and you'll get to see its beauty and a view of Macon you don't see from any other way than from the river as it winds through town. If you choose a canoe or kayak, we have two float trips to choose from that showcase the beauty of the river and provide lots of fun for everyone. The Half Day Adventure meets at the Amerson River Park, while the Quick Float meets meet at the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail parking lot. For either trip, you leave your car at the take out so it will be waiting for you when you finish and ride our shuttle to the put in. You'll float past woods and the historic Rose Hill Cemetery on the Quick Float, while the Half Day adventure has the thrill of Class 1 rapids. OOE provides boats, paddles and life jackets and makes it easy for you. Also, overnight camping trips are available and we'll shuttle private boats, too.

Just moved to Macon. Wanted to get a feel for the river. The OOE crew were helpful and informative. Everyone was great. Very much enjoyed the float down the river. We will be booking the half day option soon!

Kathleen is the BEST hostess! We missed our last stop this past trip, and when she saw my boyfriend walking the 1.2 miles back to the truck she scooped him up and drove him. And we saw a bald eagle again within the first 20 minutes of the trip! I would recommend Ocmulgee Outdoor
