About Cumberland Kayak Urban Adventure Company
Cumberland Kayak Urban Adventure Company provides everything you need to paddle the beautiful Cumberland River. Launching out of Shelby Park, you'll make your way past parkland, historic bridges, and the famous Nashville skyline before ending your journey at Nashville's Cumberland Park, right in front of Broadway. If you'd like a longer journey, our extended paddle option lets you explore Mill Creek and Demonbreun's Cave before finishing your float under the skyline.

This was a great excursion on our visit to Nashville. We had 3 girls with us, age 8, 9, and 20. They all had so much fun. The staff was super friendly. Perfect distance for about 1.5 hours on the water.

Even though it was a rainy day, we had a great time kayaking. The view of the city from the water was very nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely do this again when we can do a longer float.

Easy arrangements made, brief instructions, good equipment and a beautiful morning on the river. We did the one with entry near Opryland and saw great blue herons, a beaver, the General Jackson and few speed boats! Very fun.
