Canoe and Kayak Rentals


We provide canoe and kayak rentals to the following paddling destinations:

Lake Warner — This gem of a lake in the middle of the valley at the base of Mt Warner is perfect destination for a two hour paddle. Surrounded by an abundance of wildlife you will be amazed by the remote feeling paddling among the reeds and lily pads. This paddle is great for those with less experience in a kayak.

Sunderland Islands - This 2-hour out and back paddle around the Sunderland Islands is a wonderful way to start your river paddling explorations.

Hatfield - This 6-mile paddle from Sunderland to Hatfield is a place to begin river touring. Views of Mt Warner and the Holyoke Range greet you as you paddle under the Sunderland Bridge into Western Mass farmlands. This paddle is approximately two-hours depending on river and wind conditions.

Poplar Street — This 9-mile paddle from Turners Falls to Sunderland is one of our favorites. It's unlikely you will see other boats and almost certain you will see more than a few bald eagles. This paddle is approximately four-hours depending on river and wind conditions and requires prior experience.
