Headquartered amid a 6-mile stretch of the Chattahoochee River, Urban Currents equips its guests with 46-inch inner tubes designed for leisurely drifts down the softly flowing stream, though that's not to say they have no sense of adventure. Throughout the week, Urban Currents offers SUP board river trips, rafting trips, and sit-on-top kayaking trips.
Iran-born Dante found his home in the American wilderness, exploring landscapes from the Hawaiian tropics to the Carolina mountains. He shares his love of the outdoors through DeWine Water Sports, leading guests on seasonal tours of Georgia's rivers, including ones that take place during full moons, sunrises, and the winter solstice. In addition to immersing guests in the state's natural surroundings, Dante extols the physical benefits of kayaking and canoeing, such as toning muscle and relieving stress.
Each adrenaline-charged canopy tour takes patrons gliding above lush woodland expanses of the American southeast suspended from a secure network of treetop cables. Before all tours, Association for Challenge Course Technology–certified canopy rangers prepare patrons for their trip across Mother Nature's clothesline by outfitting them with a helmet, a full-body harness, gloves, a zipline trolley, and a delicate spritz of hummingbird repellent. Patrons receive a pretour instructional briefing, and two professional guides accompany each group for added safety. Once duly prepared, adventurers stoke their inner Tarzans while traversing the 14 wooded acres of the Ocoee River Basin, or one-up braggadocio flying squirrels by sliding nonstop for 1,200 feet across the Pigeon River. The Chattooga Ridge tour affords tethered aviators views of various ecosystems and wildlife, and the Nantahala Gorge tour elevates patrons above hemlocks and a forest floor teeming with colorful rhododendrons, flame azaleas, and envious deer.
