Experience Overview

Chattanooga, TN

The best way to experience Chattanooga, The Scenic City, is via the water exploring the beautiful Tennessee River. Check out Maclellan Island, the cliffs under Hunter Art Museum, our famous walking bridge and more.  Hourly rentals are self-guided.  RSVP ahead of time is highly recommended to ensure availability, especially on weekends. You're welcome to walk in day of but we cannot guarantee availability without a reservation.

Stand Up Paddleboard rentals are $30/1HR, $40/2HRs: exclusive to the downtown Chattanooga & Maclellan Island area. $99 for an overnight 24HR rental: you pick up and take the craft wherever you like.  3 or 4 hour rentals available upon request - please call to book.  423-531-7873

Our 2023 rental paddleboards have weight capacities between 250-315lbs, being BOTE 10'8" and 11'6" models (33" width).  Paddleboards are great for single paddlers but can also accommodate one adult + one child or dog.  Children under the age of 13 must be on a craft with an adult.

Come prepared to get a bit wet from either the splash of your paddle or a fall in the water.  Dress for the weather.  Light weight, synthetic, or beach wear is best.  We recommend water shoes or sandals because there are rocks at the launch dock but you are welcome to go bare foot.  Stay hydrated and be sure to get lots of incredible photos!

Good one day bad the next

My wife and I came to Chattanooga for the weekend and walked by L2 outside and decided to go in on Saturday the 26th. We had a great experience. The lady behind the counter was very helpful and friendly. We ended up getting a couple tee shirts a hat and a neff watch. I noticed that you guys sold Costa sunglasses and decided to come back the next day and get a pair for an early Father’s Day gift. So on Sunday we stop back in to get a pair and asked the guy that was working there if we could see a pair. He gets the keys and I try them on and my wife asked me how they fit and how do they feel, and the guy that was helping us starts to laugh at my wife and she asked if she said something funny and he says no but continued to laugh at her and by this point she is embarrassed. So I ask what’s going on and she is wondering why he is laughing at her and the whole time he continued to look over at her laughing. So she wants to leave. I put the sunglasses back and we leave confused at what just happened. We are thoroughly disappointed at the conduct of that employee and wish we had waited on the lady who helped us the night before.

1 Hour Stand Up

The girl at the counter when I rented didnt seem to know what was going on. We asked about bringing out toddler with us and she told us that that was not allowed and you didnt have life jackets that would work. I asked her to call someone and she did. She found out that it was ok.
