Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge
Southeast Region

Paddling Trails

Perhaps the best way to see the Refuge is by water. Canoes, kayaks, or small motor boats may be launched from the south end of Buffalo City Road . Fifteen miles of color-coded water trails (1,001 K) allow visitors to observe a variety of habitat types.


The refuge offers guided canoe tours for a fee. For a current schedule of these tours and other regular programs, visit our calendar of events.
