Canoes- Old Town Discovery canoes are perfect boats for taking to rivers and flatwater with the family, the picnic lunch, and the dog. These tandem canoes are paddled by two, and a small child can ride in the center of the boat as well.

Kayaks– You will enjoy paddling our sit-on-top models from Jackson Kayak. Comfortable, stable, and easy to get in and out, these boats are perfect for beginners. We carry both single and tandem models.

Stand-Up Paddleboards- Stand-Up Paddleboarding is a relatively new sport that combines the fun of paddling with the balance of surfing. Our rigid, inflatable SUPs are amazingly lightweight and beginner-friendly. These SUPs are very stable on the water while being quite easy to transport with almost all cars. 

Tubes– Our river tubes are large vinyl tubes that are specially designed for your comfortable float trip. Sit back in one of these tubes and feel instantly relaxed!
