The best way to experience Chattanooga, the Scenic City, is via watercraft exploring the beautiful Tennessee River. With the ambiance of a summer sunset and the lights of downtown Chattanooga, this expedition is a fan favorite. Reserve your spot ahead of time.
Enjoy Chattanooga as few have before, from paddleboard, kayak or tandem kayak! Circle up to and around Maclellan Island with your tour guide and other adventurers taking in stunning views of the Hunter Museum Bluffs, our famous four bridges and a beautiful sunset. There are opportunities to climb the bluffs, do a little swimming on the island's beaches and slack-line on the front pier! Our guides are more than happy to also take photos of you at sunset, typically parked at the tip of the island.
Tours are $45 per person. Adults and children are welcome to double up on crafts. Sunset tour tickets are sold on a per-person basis. If looking to double up on a paddleboard, further payment may be completed in store.
Our paddleboards have weight capacities between 250-315lbs. Single Kayaks up to 250lbs. Tandem kayaks up to 500lbs. All children under the age of 13 must be on a craft with an adult. Paddleboards & Single Kayaks are best for single paddlers, but can accommodate one adult + one small child or dog. Tandem Kayaks are best for two paddlers, but can accommodate two adults + one small child or dog.
Pick your craft: paddleboards, single kayaks and tandem kayaks available.
Tours leave the boat ramp at their scheduled time, sharp**, on Friday and Saturday nights throughout rental season, May-October. The tour is roughly 1.5 to 2 hours long depending on the group and paddling experience. Arrive at our 131 River Street storefront, in Coolidge Park beside Sushi Nabe, to sign waivers and receive instruction (do not arrive later than 30 minutes before launch). Arrive early because you may encounter heavy traffic when trying to find a parking spot, especially on weekend nights.
**Late arrivals will be left behind. We know, it's a bummer. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Come prepared to get a bit wet from either the splash of your paddle or a fall in the water. Dress for the weather. Light weight, synthetic, or beach wear is best. We recommend water shoes or sandals because there are rocks at the launch dock, but you're welcome to go bare foot. Stay hydrated and be sure to get lots of incredible photos!

Great people! Love the accommodation and could pick a better evening to do the sunset tour. We had wonderful weather!
wonderful paddleboarding guides
This was my first time paddle boarding and it was a great experience! Chris, our guide, was awesome and we lucked out on a beautiful sunset.
Great time, a bit pricey.
Great time, a bit pricey.
I cannot wait to come back and do it again.
It was such a fun experience for this beginner. Chris and Jake were very patient and checked on me and the other beginner in the group multiple times throughout the tour. I honestly can't wait to come back and do it again!
