Guided Canoe Tour: Overnight Trip in Perry County

$20 – $40

One of the very best ways to get a feel for the nature of the Cahaba River is to spend a couple of days and a night camping on the river.
The first day is much like the Day Trips described above. But instead of crawling out of the river at the end of the day, we find a sand bar, pitch tents, cook a meal, and spend the night by a campfire. Soaking up an entirely different kind of experience on the river is great fun. You must provide your own camping gear and food.

Guided Canoe Trip: Cahaba Lily Tour I–Cancelled due to high water levels

May 8 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm UTC-6
Cahaba National Widlife Refuge, River Trace
West Blocton, AL 35184 United States
+ Google Map
$40

On this tour, you will see the beautiful Cahaba lilies first hand in their natural setting. These are rigorous outings that require wading and dragging a canoe over shallow rocky shoals. When very low water conditions occur, we alter the trip so we still see the lilies and enjoy the river, but we avoid a difficult hike down the riverbed. These are our most popular outings, so call soon to reserve your canoe.
