Sandhill Crane Sunset Kayak Tour


Enjoy a guided kayak tour at sunset to view the Sandhill Cranes fly back to the Hiwassee Island Wildlife Refuge. The cranes return each night to sleep standing in the shallow waters of the Tennessee River. 

Our winter paddle mittens, waterproof jacket, and drip skirt will keep you nice and warm out on the water.

We also provide hot chocolate or apple cider before your adventure begins. 

The Tennessee Sandhill Crane Festival is held on January 15-16, 2022. This is a great time to join us on a kayak tour as there will be plenty of free activities after your kayak tour for you to participate in.  The festival runs from 8 am to 4 pm daily.
