Georgia River Network's Spring on the Satilla is a two-day, 21-mile canoe/kayak/paddleboard adventure on southeast Georgia's Satilla River. The trip features beautiful blackwater paddling, white sand beaches, abundant wildlife, two nights of on-river camping, educational programs and campfire camaraderie. Paddle Georgia Spring on the Satilla 2019 is set for April 6-7.
Georgia River Network employs multiple layers of safety measures to ensure a fun and safe journey. Safety boaters, lead and sweep boats, buddy boat system, river-to-land communications networks and launch site/take out site check ins are among the safety measures in place.
Gear should be brought for day trips suitable to weather and river conditions. There is no need to bring camp gear in boats as the camp gear will remain at a single campsite throughout the adventure.
Expect mild weather suitable for wading (and swimming for the more hearty participants!). The second day's paddle includes tidal conditions and may require paddling against an incoming tide for a portion of the short, 7-mile day.
