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.

Tandem Kayak rentals are $50/1HR, $65/2HRs. $149 for an overnight 24HR rental.  3 or 4 hour rentals available upon request - please call to book.  423-531-7873

Our tandem kayaks have a weight capacity of 500lbs.  Tandem Kayaks are great for two paddlers but can also accommodate two adults + one small 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!

Important Details

For 2023, if you sign your waivers + watch our instructional safety video AT HOME you may go straight to our launch point under Market Street Bridge 15-20 minutes before your reservation time to be set up with all your gear.

Watch our safety video & sign waivers via this link.

Please arrive at our store front on 131 River Street (in Coolidge Park, beside Sushi Nabe) 30 minutes prior to your scheduled rental time to check in and sign a waiver, if not previously completed at home. Due to time constraints and demand we have to keep a tight schedule. Parking can be a bit tricky during peak hours so be sure to arrive early. Your time on the water begins at your designated reservation time.

Save some time in-store and fill out your safety waivers now - you'll thank us later.  We'll just need you to bring your state issued ID to add to your waiver the first time you rent with us.  All adults must fill out one waiver for themselves.  Children who have the same guardian can all be added to ONE youth waiver.

***ATTN: Please read ALL instructions listed on further rental pages AND in your confirmation email.  There will be instructions on early arrival, parking, and more.
