GET ON THE WATER

Here is a refreshing idea, spend the day on the water and if you need to cool off, just jump in! The kids and kids-at-heart will love bouncing the waves on a jet ski or casting a rod to catch the big one! If you don't have a boat, no problem, many area marinas rent them by the half or full day. For boat rentals and fishing guides try Sinclair Marina. Boats and jet skis are available from Twin Lakes Jet Ski as well as Jere Shai Lakeside.

Looking for more adventure? Flyboarding is a new water sport that uses jet propulsion from a personal watercraft to rocket a flyer into the air and Central Georgia Flyboarding will meet you, teach you and have you soaring!

GET YOUR FLOAT ON!

If you yearn for the beauty of sitting atop the waving waters, Milledgeville offers two water-side opportunities to soak up your share of Vitamin D and indulge your adventurous side. Lake Sinclair encompasses 15,300 acres of inlets and coves to explore. The Oconee River can be enjoyed by paddlers of all experience levels. Local outfitters will rent you a kayak for the half or full day as well as provide transportation to drop off and pick up sites.  If you aren’t feeling up for an epic solo trip, there are group floats down the Oconee River as well.

Plan your trip  to get on the water with our locals  Mac's Yaks or Oconee Outfitters.
