For Every Program and Rental:

  • A personal flotation device (provided), is required to be present on all boats and boards by law. We require that PFDs are worn at all times while in our boats!
  • Shoes should we worn at the boat house and may be taken off when you get in the boat. Sandals, flip flops or foam clogs are ideal for paddling.
  • Bring a valid ID and credit or debit card.
  • Clothing appropriate for the temperature of the air and the water. We recommend synthetic clothing made of wicking synthetic fabrics like nylon or polyester.¬†Swim suits encouraged but are not required. On cool or breezy days you will want to wear a fleece and/or rain jacket.
  • Sunglasses with a strap or float, a sun hat and sunscreen for sun protection.
  • A water bottle or two and a snack


  • If you bring your phone, electronics, medications, keys or valuable personal items we recommend keeping them in a tested, waterproof, floating case or borrow a dry bag from us.¬† Alternately you can leave them in your vehicle or with our staff on shore.
  • Our rule of thumb is: don't bring anything in the kayak that you don't want to get wet or sink to the bottom of the river.
