We rent a variety of kayaks and canoes for self-guided trips on the Red Deer River and surrounding area. Our rental office is located right along the Red Deer River. Equipment and instruction necessary on how to safely transport your rental equipment to the launch point of your choice is available. Shuttle service to launch and pick up sites is also available. 

Single Kayak Rental: Single sit-in kayaks are a great choice for a recreational paddle on the Red Deer River. Our single kayaks range from 9’ to 11’ models to accommodate a wide range of paddler sizes and skills. Our Pelican 100’s are the most popular for paddlers from beginner to moderate skill level and are very stable and easy to transport. We also have a limited number of single kayaks made by Dagger, Old Town and Wilderness Systems. Rentals include paddle, PFD, and all required safety equipment.

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.
