For the ones who arrive early on Friday, a trip will be available that afternoon on Cathead Creek.
Cathead Creek drains part of Buffalo Swamp and was used by rice growers during the 18th and 19th centuries. The abandoned ricefields and irrigation canals, now overgrown with freshwater vegetation and teaming with wildlife, provide miles of waterways and canoe trails. Time pending. Canoe and kayak appropriate. We should meet at Altamaha Coastal Tours shop on Friday starting at 2:30 p.m. to start this trip,
Trips subject to change.
Friday night we will be dining, dutch, at Skippers Fish Camp Restaurant and Oyster Bar, and Sonja Cox, Altamaha Riverkeeper, will talk to us about the area.

Altamaha Coastal Tours will be able to provide shuttle service for the Friday March 25th paddle to Cathead Creek/Buffalo Swamp Natural Area for $5 per person. Because of the limited parking we should all meet at our Outpost in Darien and consolidate vehicles.
Altamaha Coastal Tours will also provide shuttle service for the Saturday March 26th paddle on the Altamaha River for $10 per person. The shuttle will leave from Altamaha Regional Park where the trip will end.
For the Sunday March 27th paddle we will leave from downtown Darien where the trip will also end, so no shuttle is required.
Kayak rentals will be provided by Altamaha Coastal Tours, $20 per day for solo touring kayaks and $40 per day for tandems. We also have tandem recreational kayaks, $30 per day.
