What you can expect from us:
- Professional & Qualified Service

We only rent quality equipment and we monitor the river and weather conditions daily to ensure our customers have a safe enjoyable experience. We won’t let any of our canoe and kayak rentals go out on the river if we feel conditions are unsafe. In short we won’t put profit ahead of customer safety.
Our canoe and kayak rentals are by the day, which means you don’t have to be back by a set time like some outfitters.
