Congaree River Rental

Overview:  
If you enjoy interacting with Columbia's history while leisurely paddling, you'll love our Congaree River trip.  As you navigate the calm waters of the Congaree River, you will paddle past the S.S. Columbia- a 100 year old rear paddle-wheel steamer embedded into the riverbank.  Downstream you'll paddle under railroad bridges and through the Granby Locks- a river mechanism used in the 1900's to bypass the rocky landscape of the Congaree River.  This calm 3 mile paddle is perfect for beginners and natural history lovers.

Our Congaree River Rental offers everything your group needs to have a great day out enjoying the beautiful natural features of Columbia.  Your kayak, life jacket, paddles, and shuttle are all included in the price of the Congaree River Rental. Your group will begin it's trip at the Gervais Street bridge and will paddle straight down the Congaree River to the Thomas Newman boat landing in Cayce.  You are then shuttled back to the Gervais Street Bridge and your car where your dry clothes are waiting for you.  Come out and discover a completely unique view of Columbia today.
