Boat & Gear Rentals

Instructions for Renting

Rentals can be picked up from and returned to our shop.
(1320 School Street, Richmond, VA 23220)

You can pick up as early as 8am and as late as 6pm.
Rentals must be returned before 8am the next day. If you drop off when the shop is closed, just give us a call to let us know.
The earlier you pick up, the more time you get to use it!

If you have a truck or a car with roof racks, bring it! If you do not have either, it’s ok. We can put the boats on top of your car with straps and roof pads. 2 single person kayaks can go on a car roof. Most car roofs can only fit one tandem kayak or canoe.

All boat rentals include a PFD, paddle, helmet (if whitewater), splash skirt (if whitewater), car straps, roof pad (if needed).

Deliveries are not available right now.

If you would like to rent for multiple days, please call our shop to discuss multi-day pricing. (804) 898-0697

Various Paddling and river camping gear can also be rented, but reservations must be made over the phone.
