Old River Canoes

COLORS:

Our locations have lots of boats, and it is rare that we have a wait at any of our locations except on the busiest weekends between Noon and 5pm. We can almost always accommodate you, especially if you are flexible about the type of boat you want.

How do I make a Reservation?

What You Get & What to Bring

What is included with my rental?

Your rental includes life jackets and paddles for each person. We have life jackets for all ages and sizes, from infant on up. We have paddles for kids starting at age 4–6.

Kayakers who have performed a wet exit (where you flipped the kayak, removed the skirt, and exited) may take a spray skirt upon request (subject to availability). We also have pumps and rescue floats available upon request (subject to availability).

Do I have to wear my life jacket?

Absolutely! Each participant must sign a waiver stating, among other things, that you will wear your life jacket throughout your rental. The life jacket will keep you afloat even if you are tired or cold, and is a critical piece of safety gear. It is very difficult to put on a life jacket when you're in the water, so wear it all the time!

What should I wear?

Paddling is a water sport, so you should wear clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting splashed or dripped on (and there is a chance of capsize, though the overwhelming majority of our customers come back dry and happy!).

Most people wear street clothes (jeans, T-shirts, etc.), though others choose more specialized synthetic fabrics that dry more quickly than cotton (like polypro or nylon — think 'running clothes'). Dress for the weather, including a fleece when it's colder or a jacket when it's raining.

Sneakers are fine, though some customers prefer sandals, water shoes, or flip-flops. Nicer shoes are not recommended because they are likely to get wet. A hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are recommended.

If you wear glasses or sunglasses, a retaining strap like Chums is strongly recommended.

What should I bring?

The only things you need for your rental are a form of payment and a Photo I.D. (driver's license, passport, or other government-issued identification). However, you will probably want to bring water, a snack, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

If you plan to bring a camera, cell phone, or other electronics, you should bring a waterproof container or plan to rent a drybag for $1.
