River snorkeling

Snorkeling in a beautiful river?  This sounds like a really fun event, promoted by an important organization, the Georgia Conservancy.  We love seeing how creative organizations can be with events that really provide a great experience of nature.

Here’s the Conservancy’s description of the event:


Conasauga River Snorkeling Trip conasauga


Why should you go:

Hands down, this is one of the coolest experiences you will ever have in Georgia (and considering the trips that we lead to the Okefenokee, Cumberland Island and down the Flint River – this is saying something).

Imagine walking up to a crystal clear mountain stream nestled in the protected forest of the Cohutta Wildreness. As you swim into the stream and your snorkel mask dips below the water, you will be amazed at the numerous and various species of fish hiding just below the surface. All told – 70 species of fish have been identified in this snorkeling hole over the years.
