Don’t forget your hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, water bottle, snack, windbreaker, camera, binoculars, and bug spray.  Water shoes are strongly recommended for paddle-boarding.  It’s also a good idea to pack a towel and change of clothes to leave in the car in case you get wet or decide to rinse off in our outdoor shower after your paddle.

No rentals during inclement weather or small craft advisories.
Call ahead to ask about current conditions if you will be traveling any distance to reach us.

Rentals rates include paddles, Coast Guard approved PFDs (personal flotation devices) & map of local waters.  In addition, weekly rentals include local delivery(20 miles) and pick up.

Take note:

There is NO lifeguard on duty and the rivers are unattended! We highly recommend that you know how to swim when renting from us. All paddlers are required to wear a securely fastened PFD at all times while on the water.
Paddling is a water sport and there is a chance you may get wet. Wear appropriate foot protection and clothing. Avoid cotton fabric because once it’s wet, it stays wet!
For a nominal fee you may rent a dry bag which, if used correctly, should keep water out, but we do not guarantee dry bags. If it can be damaged by water and is precious to you, DO NOT take the item in the boat with you.
