The courteous staffers at River Tubing pair up customers with comfortable, dual-chamber tubes perfect for warm days spent on the calm waters of the Chattahoochee River. Two-, four-, and six-hour tubing trips take place seven days a week on stretch of river between Rogers Bridge and Medlock Bridge populated with wildlife including beavers, turtles, and otters. Shuttles carry customers and their gear to the drop-in spot and return them to the rental station at the end of the trip. While on the water, guests can sip drinks from coolers, connect their tubes to those of friends, hop out and swim, or issue speeding tickets to fast-moving schools of trout.

When I was in Vietnam with the US Army. For relaxation, special services provided sailboats for us to use. When I returned from overseas and started managing Sears stores, it was a great therapy to get out on the water. What?s your favorite part of your job? Watching the faces of my customers change after a lesson or rental. They are so much more relaxed. It is like a mental massage for them. It is a great stress-buster to get out on the water. Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part? Being part of a class and enjoying in the team-building fun. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? My dad was a naval commander. I was born in the Oakland Naval Yard. I built my first boat when I was 8 years old. My wife and I both hold a 50 ton US Coast Guard Sailing Captains License. We have spent 150 days in a 25-foot sailboat circumnavigating Florida. I love the peace being on the water brings.

Windsong Sailing Academy blends the educational and the recreational aspects of sailing. It is a formula that has inspired lifelong passions in several former students. One student abandoned his corporate life to sail the Caribbean with his son, and another couple spent their retirement as the co-captains of an Island Packet 38 sailboat, boating past Miami, the Bahamas, and several countries recently acquired by Tom Hanks. Over the course of Windsong?s 27 years of nautical adventures, Captain Dave Crumbley and his team have still sought to instill both knowledge and passion for the sport they love. With their educational courses, you?ll learn both theory and technique, and you can choose to take a program that can lead to certification with the American Sailing Association. For pure buoyant bliss, board one of Windsong?s themed outings on Lake Lanier, which have included a murder mystery, a Jamaican-music night, and a storytelling voyage.

Anyone with a compass and a good pair of shoes can walk through a forest. Lake Lanier Canopy Tours' guides make it their mission to give lovers of the outdoors a unique view of nature from ziplines and sky bridges that snake through the treetops around Lake Lanier Islands Resort. All in all, 30 ziplines stretch above terra firma to form several distinct paths for exploring the canopy. The Lakeside tour follows four sky bridges and several ziplines that pass over Lake Lanier itself, and the Legacy Night tour takes riders equipped with headlamps and lanterns across seven ziplines. The company's most adventurous excursion, the Pine Isle tour, makes its way across a total of 11 ziplines, including the Duals, twin lines that send riders side by side for 1,500 feet at speeds upwards of 50 miles per hour. Professional guides accompany every adventure to make sure participants are safe as they soar down the lines, traverse sky bridges, and negotiate with eagles for permission to use their trees. All of the tours are designed and built by Association for Challenge Course Technology professionals, and all gear, decks, cables, helmets, and harnesses are certified for safety.
