Chattanooga History Center will partner with Outdoor Chattanooga to offer two
special Sunset Kayak tours on the Tennessee River on June 18th and July 16th, 2015 beginning at 5:30 PM.
Explore the Tennessee River by kayak and learn about its history as Chattanooga became the "greatest landing on the river," why control of it was crucial to armies in the Civil War, how the river propelled industry, and how river access impacted Chattanooga’s revitalization. If conditions permit, we will ride the lock through the dam. Return shuttle and kayaking equipment is provided.
Join us for a leisurely, beginner-friendly kayak tour at sunset. Registered participants meet at the
Chickamauga Dam for a leisurely two-hour paddle led by experienced Outdoor Chattanooga river guides. Chattanooga History Center Senior Educator, Caroline Sunderland, will tell the stories of how people have interacted with the river that runs through our city and through our city’s history. You will view historic photographs from the CHC Collection and learn history in the context of the modern landscape.
Cost for the tours is $45 per adult and $35 for kids ages 14-18. All kayaking equipment and guides are included. Reservations are required and must be secured with a credit card to insure a spot. Space is limited. To make a reservation, call Outdoor Chattanooga at 423-643-6888.
