Blackwater Paddle Club is proud to announce an upcoming expedition: The Altamaha River. The river begins at confluence of the Ocmulgee and Oconee Rivers near Uvalda, GA. This trip comprises 102 miles of the river as it ends just before the river turns brackish. As such, we will launch in Uvalda, GA and extract from Sterling, GA paddling a total of 102 miles over the course of six days. Based on these calculations we will budget to paddle a required number of miles each day to afford one full day of camping for rest, leisure, and any unforseen weather delays. For your convenience we plan to have several means to transport kayaks & gear to the river. Please review the attached maps, landing key, and river guide for more information.
