at your service
Three Rivers Outdoors is your full-service outfitter and guide to the wonders of the Altamaha River and the region, whether for a few hours or up to 10 days. Bring yourself and a friend or trek your wild adventures in a group.
We provide outfitting services for all 137 miles of this mighty river, including:
• guide/interpretive naturalist service
• rentals and sales of equipment
• canoes and kayaks
• shuttle service
• And catering if you need it.
Serving three great rivers—the Ocmulgee, Oconee and Altamaha—our outdoor center is located on the banks of the Altamaha, perched on its banks overlooking one of its scenic stretches. We can give you a history and biology lesson on the mighty river or take you on a serene moonlit paddle. While we’re proud that we were featured on NOAA's "Rivers to Reefs" production and the Discovery Channels "Survivorman" series, we love civic groups and churches as well.
While we can provide turn key, full-service outfitting for these three great rivers, the star of our show is the mighty Altamaha. A natural paradise for paddlers and other outdoorsmen and designated by The Nature Conservancy as one of the 75 "Last Great Places" in the world, the Altamaha River is one of the most biologically diverse river systems in the Southeast. It is the second largest watershed on the Eastern Seaboard, flowing 137 miles from the confluence of the Ocmulgee and Oconee rivers just east of Lumber City to its delta at the Atlantic Ocean between Darien and Brunswick (known as the Altamaha River Canoe Trail). This un-dammed treasure is a magnificent ecosystem, home to more than 130 rare and endangered species including bald eagles, swallow-tailed kites and red-cockaded woodpeckers which thrive among forests, swamps and tidal marshes.
