Jump in the Water

Georgia’s hot summer days are quickly approaching, and in Milledgeville that means enjoying the outdoors, spending time with friends and family, and creating memories that will last forever. Milledgeville is home to Lake Sinclair and the Oconee River, so the best way to cool off in the summer heat is to enjoy our miles of shorelines and refreshing waters.

Lake Sinclair Boat Jump

Pontoon Boat, Jet Ski Rentals

Several Marinas on Lake Sinclair offer boat and jetski rentals for those 25 years or older. Bring a cooler for lunch, sunscreen, and some floats, and you are ready! Make sure to ask the marina about tubing on the lake, an activity that kids and adults are sure to love!

Tubing down the Oconee River

Grab an inner-tube and enjoy a lazy day on the Oconee River. Connect your inner-tubes with a piece of rope and float as a family, or fly solo with and enjoy the breeze.

Central Georgia Flyboarding

For the adventurers looking to try something new, flyboarding is the new extreme water-sport trend. Experience the futuristic new activity that allows you to fly over the beautiful waters of Lake Sinclair. The flyboard is made up of a pair of jet-boots connected to a hose, which is then connected to a jetski or boat. The water then propels you up into the air, allowing you to spin, flip, and dive into the water. Find out more about this unique experience by visiting http://centralgaflyboarding.com/.
