Guided Canoe Trip: Cahaba Lily Tour III–Trip Full

May 23, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC-6
Cahaba National Widlife Refuge, River Trace
West Blocton, AL 35184 United States
+ Google Map
$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.

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.
