Spend the Night at our Historic Hotel
Experience a one-of-a-kind guided night-kayak adventure on the beautiful Buffalo river in Linden, TN. You will glide along the easy-flowing Buffalo on a single or tandem kayak illuminated with stunning luminescence. Don't miss this unforgettable adventure.
Guests will gather at dusk on the Commodore's private riverfront property just two minutes from the hotel. Our guide will review kayak & safety instructions with your small group of 10 kayakers.
Then, just follow along in wonder as you experience floating with the Buffalo River's gentle current. There's a good chance we will have some special nature sightings on the trip, so keep an eye out. Bald eagles, turtles, frogs, great blue herons, red-tailed hawks, all kinds of fish, and owls, are native the this area.
Tours are currently offered Thursdays and Saturdays. Group tours may be available other nights - just give us a call.
This slow paced, immersive, and very relaxing experience regenerates your soul as you glide through clean, calm waters of the serene, limestone banked Buffalo River.
