Tennessee's Grand Canyon • Tennessee River - SUP the State Part 4

Posted by on

Tennessee’s Grand Canyon - SUP the State - Part 4 Paddling the Tennessee River means towering limestone cliffs, dramatic mountain views and the 26-mile section through the Tennessee River Gorge, known as the Little Grand Canyon.

Choosing a SUP or Kayak for Expedition

Posted by BOTE Admin on

Choosing a SUP or Kayak for Multi-Day Paddling Trips & Expeditions Hiking to remote campsites and overland camping are classic means of transportation for accessing off-the-beaten-path campsites with minimal water access, but you just can’t beat a multi-day paddling trip. The most unique destinations often call for water travel and with the growing popularity of paddle boarding, it’s no wonder that outdoor enthusiasts have leaned into incorporating SUPs into their camping trips.

72 Hours in Destin, Florida

Posted by BOTE Admin on

72 Hours in Destin, Florida Coined as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”, Destin, Florida, is known for its white sand beaches and easy access to deep sea fishing.
