Trip Planning

 PLANNING A TRIP IS EASY. Just determine how many people will be in your party. How much time you would like to spend on the river. Choose a river that suits you and your group. It's really that easy. 

Let Alabama Eco Adventures take care of the details. If you have any questions, give us a call or email. We will be glad to answer any questions and assist you. On the day of the trip you will meet at the put-in (starting point) which we will send directions to you when you register for you trip.


We do need to know your experience level, so we can better plan and make suggestions for your trip. What are your interests?--photography, bird watching, fishing, etc. You do not need to be an expert canoeist or a great outdoor person to enjoy a canoe trip. Don't miss a chance to explore the great outdoors because you are not in good shape. Our guides will go at your pace, so you can enjoy the trip the way you want.
