Kayak Rentals

We offer single and tandem kayaks. Kayaking on the river is great for all skill levels.  We do encourage the youngsters to try kayaking, however it's not for everyone!  Yes it is a big river, but the currents in the river gorge are very calm compared to the parts of the river downtown. All equipment supplied.
