Double Kayak Rental: Double (tandem) kayaks are an alternative for 2 people that want to paddle together. They are a little more flexible than a canoe and ride higher in the water so can more easily avoid obstacles. The Perception Cove is a double kayak (14’6”) that features a pair of ergonomic and comfortable seats with thigh padding and multiple adjustment options for both paddlers. It includes a movable bow seat that adjusts to an extra passenger or even for solo paddling. Rental includes paddle, PFD, and all required safety equipment.

Canoe Rental: Canoes are a great choice for two paddlers for longer trips and on larger bodies of water. Stable, easy to use and loads of room for your stuff or for an extra passenger. The Coleman 15.5 Ram-X and Old Town Saranac 160 canoes are great for paddling down the river. Durable yet flexible they are able to handle shoals and ripples but stable enough to handle rougher water. They will carry lots of weight. Rental includes paddle, PFD, and all required safety equipment.
