Day Kayaking

Tandem Kayaks

Tandem Kayaks are the same rate as canoes. Tandem kayaks are  for parent and small child (no younger than 5 years old and no older than 13) These are sit-on-top kayaks so you get wet!

Canoeists and kayakers can choose between calm water with riffles to beginner whitewater with several rapids as you go by public lands (GW National Forest), farm lands and  limestone cliffs. Trips can be from one hour to all day to several days. We will help you plan the perfect trip for you, your friends and your family.

Pack a lunch—the River is yours for the day!
