New England's largest specialty paddlesports shop, located on the Farmington River in historic (and cool) Collinsville, offering retail sales, rentals, and lessons.


Retail Sales: We carry the one of largest in-stock inventory of paddlecraft and accessories in New England. Our sales staff is non-comissioned 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 products.

Lessons: We offer small group classes and private lessons in kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, and paddleboarding yoga for beginners to advanced paddlers, as well as our popular Kids Summer Paddling Program.

Rentals: We rent canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards directly behind our shop onto a dammed section of the Farmington River known, so no need to drive to another location. You paddle upriver and return to the launch site, an experience of approximately two hours for most. This section of the river is calm and flat and perfect for beginners. We also rent adult bikes for use on the Farmington River Rail Trail which passes in front of our shop.
Occasional evening hours scheduled as close to the full moon as possible provide opportunities for fellow paddlers to get together on the Farmington River. Additional group outings can be customized for youth groups, employee outings, birthday parties, etc. Dining options, public parking, Music on Main Street summer concert series, Canton Historical Museum, and more are nearby within walking distance.
