Our main location is open 7 days/week for daily rentals. Our additional weekend location at Schlitz Park is open Saturdays and Sundays only. Rentals are for up to 4 hours. You can return your boats whenever you’d like during those 4 hours. Some paddlers stay out for an hour, some stay out for 4 hours – it’s all up to you. If you think you’d like your rentals longer than 4 hours, please let us know and we can talk about options. Our Schlitz Park location offers 2 hour rentals as well.

Our weekly guided tours
are safe, fun and educational. We will gather as a group, launch and paddle together. All of our guided tours include safety boaters to help guide everyone along the way. Sometimes we will make a stop on the river where we can get out and stretch and/or grab a beverage – it just depends on the tour. Most of our tours are 3 hours long with 2 – 2 -1/2 hours spent paddling on our rivers. You can find our calendar by clicking on the “BOOK NOW” button on the bottom right.

School and group tours with safety boaters or a guide. If you would like to organize a school group, community organization or special group outing, please give us a call or send an email @ anytime. We can talk about general timelines, dates, rates, how it all works, our rivers and everything else to make your tour fun, safe and enjoyable. You can go out on your own (similar to a daily rental) or we can provide safety boaters at an additional cost. If you would like a guide to accompany your group for a more educational experience, there is an additional charge.

All rentals include a boat (kayak, paddleboard, canoe), life jacket and paddle. We have a limited supply of dry bags you can borrow for your belongings. Please remember we are not responsible for lost, stolen or wet items. Life jackets must be worn at all times when near or on the water, thanks.

All participants need to be 12+ to paddle their own kayaks. If under the age of 12, then that paddler can share a tandem kayak or canoe with an adult (18+). All participants need to know how to swim.

The weight limit of our most stable kayak is 275 lbs depending on river and weather conditions. If weight is a concern, please give us a call to chat and/or make an appointment to talk about options or test paddling.

Everyone must submit a waiver before arrival. When making your reservation, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to our waiver. You can also find our waiver on the top right of our website. Thanks!
