OUR 2023 RENTAL SEASON IS NOW WINDING DOWN AND RESERVATIONS MUST BE MADE BY APPOINTMENT.
Our river is a tidal river with currents and wind. It is a workout most times. It is much different than paddle boarding on still water. Please take note and prepare accordingly. Every day in season, we post the tide times, wind speed, UV Index and more. Feel free to call us for advice on the day's ideal times.
At low tide, you will likely have to step in the mud. We recommend wearing water shoes. We do sell them as well (men, women, and children while supplies last).
