Georgia Outdoors | On The Altamaha

On The Altamaha

Take a journey down one of the mightiest rivers on the East Coast, and perhaps the hardest to pronounce. We travel from central Georgia to the Atlantic Ocean by kayak, motorboat, skiff, and shrimp boat. As we paddle past snakes, get caught in dangerous thunderstorms, and find ourselves stuck in overgrown swamps, the story of this untamed river unfolds with beauty and a large dose of humor.

Premiere Date: March 1, 2011 | Runtime: 00:27:31
