Group Rentals

As fall begins, group reservations have ended for our season. Groups of ten or fewer guests are invited to our walk-up paddling service during our regular operating hours.


Weekends are typically our highest volume days and watercraft availability may be limited as a result, so please consider an arrival time by noon. We will do our best to boat you together. I.D. (driver’s license or passport) required per watercraft.
