We had a great time - very informative and helpful! Never knew all the serenity was right there in downtown Atlanta:-) I'm looking forward to going back and taking a paddle board trip! We went during the week and it was very quiet and peaceful....More

I wish I could give this place ZERO STARS because even that would be generous. We never even got on a bus and here is why: As I am standing there in a makeshift office trying to fill out paperwork for the kayak and use...More

After reading the few reviews here I was expecting to have a lot of inconveniences and very long wait times. However, that wasn't exactly my experience. We arrived to Urban Currents maybe 15 mins before our appointment time of 9:00. We signed waivers and paid...More

This is to inform you that ALL YOU READ is true. This business SHOULD BE NO MORE. I can't say that I've ever seen someone NOT care about customers like this place. They don't deserve ANY business at all. They text while driving to drop...More

I would not use this company again, the don't provide any information on where to go or when you will be picked up. They are not cheap either so you are not paying for what you receive. I could understand if you only paid $10...More
