Guided Canoe Trip: Moonlight Tour II
May 31 @ 6:30 am - 10:30 pm$20 – $40
Cahaba River Society offers guided float trips on the Cahaba River. We can supply canoes, paddles, life jackets, and a naturalist with the expertise to allow you a unique, up-close experience with the Cahaba River. Registration is required!
A moonlit evening on the Cahaba is a delightful, unique, and relaxing way to enjoy a flat water portion of the Cahaba. We usually hear a variety of wildlife, and often see hundreds of glowworms. These outings begin at dusk at the old Highway 280 bridge. We paddle for about an hour upstream, attempting to stay quiet so that we can see all there is to see. We will then gather around to ask any questions and share our findings with the group, then turn back and paddle downstream to the boat launch.
This is a flat water, out and back trip which means that we won’t be dealing with (or benefitting from) any current and that we will put in and take out at the same location. It is a fairly easy paddle, and we will also set the pace to be comfortable for everyone. In all, we will spend about two hours on the water. Generally, there is about an hour of set up and break down, so these trips last about 3 hours in total.
