Half Day Trips

Kayak trip by SilenteyeSelf-guided trips include a canoe, kayak or stand-up paddleboard, paddles, PFDs (personal floatation devices) and shuttle service. Visit the Choosing a Trip page for guidance in deciding which trip would be best for your group. We add trips to our Paddle Calendar as they are requested on a first come, first serve basis. Walk-ins are welcome but it is always best to register in advance to reserve your boats. Trip availability also depends on current river levels.

All self-guided trips are also available as guided trips with an additional fee of $5 per person. (4 person minimum)
