Being a student of Augusta University has its privileges!
With the popularity of outdoor recreation in our community and the Savannah River at our feet, the opportunity for students to get involved with kayaking is a win-win!
Our kayaks are easy to use and can be checked out for self-guided trips or beginners may prefer one of the scheduled guided tours to start their outdoor adventure.
Augusta University offers a variety of sit-on kayaks that can get you started on a trip down our historical Savannah River! Stop by the Wellness Center today to start your trip!

To avoid unnecessary charges, the student is responsible to inspect all equipment, making sure all parts are in good, working order. Should something be missing, torn or broken, the staff on duty should be made aware of the damage. Checkout/in can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour so plan accordingly. All equipment must be returned clean and in good working order. A cleaning and/or repair fee of $20.00 will be charged for equipment returned dirty or in need of repair as determined by staff on duty.
Augusta University cannot be responsible for lost, damaged or destroyed personal property (including vehicles) or for any personal injuries incurred while using the equipment. Students are solely responsible for rented equipment for the duration of the contract. Fees and policies are subject to change without notice.
