One of New England's largest specialty paddle sports shop, located on the Farmington River, offering retail sales, rentals and lessons.
RETAIL SALES: We carry the one of largest in-stock inventory of paddle craft and accessories in New England. Our sales staff is non-comission so there's no hard pressure sales, just thoughtful and patient help to find what's right for you. And we use all the gear we sell so we can give you first hand knowledge of our product.
RENTALS: We rent canoes, kayaks and paddle boards. The rental ramp is located at the end of our parking lot where we launch you into a dammed up section of the Farmington River, also known as the Upper Mill Pond. No need to drive to another location. You paddle upriver approximately a mile and a half, turn around and paddle back down to the ramp. This section of the river is calm and flat and perfect for beginners.
We also rent bikes for the Farmington River Rail Trail which runs right in front of our location.
MOONLIGHT PADDLES: We offer evening rentals (or bring your own boat) several times during our rental season. We try to schedule these as close to the full moon as possible. This is not a guided trip just an opportunity for fellow paddlers to get together on the Farmington River behind our shop.
LESSONS: We offer group and private lessons for beginners to advanced paddlers as well as our popular Kids' Summer Paddling Program. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding and SUP yoga.
