Where is the kayak barn?
Your trip will begin at 211 N. Main Street in an small brick building located in Fannie Pell Park. The small brick building is the Kayak barn where you will meet to obtain your life vest, paddle, make payments, and fill your water bottle! We have a sign on the side of the building now. It’s visible from N. Main Street.
Do you “shuttle” personal kayaks?
Yes, we do provide transportation service for a fee of $15 per kayak or canoe. Call ahead and we will be able to take you based on available space.
Is there an age limit?
We highly suggest children be 3+yrs of age or older for safety and an enjoyable experience for the child.
Can I bring my Dog?
Yes, many dogs love the water. We encourage you to bring your dog if you feel they would enjoy it. If you have a large dog you may want to rent a tandem kayak so you and your dog can enjoy the trip comfortably.
We recommend you bring a life vest for your dog. We do not have canine life jackets available at the Kayak barn. We ask that you use common sense when it comes to caring for your dog and following any rules when in public places.
Do I have to wear a life preserver?
Yes, and at all times! All guests will have a coast guard approved life vest and it must be on when you get in your kayak. They are comfortable and provide peace of mind should an accident occur. The river is flowing at all times, so be safe and follow the rules.
How long does it take?
You choose from a 1 or 3 hour trip depending on the time you have. We will work hard to get your rental paperwork done and get you launched or loaded for the launch upriver. Booking on line will help get you in the river quickly!
Additional treks can be arranged by appointment!
