The best way to experience Chattanooga, The Scenic City, is via a kayak exploring the beautiful Tennessee River. This is a self guided tour. 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.
Single Kayaks are $25/1HR, $10 per additional rental hour. $75 for an overnight 24HR rental.
Lockers are now also available for rent - lock & key included! They measure 30" tall, 12" wide and 11" deep, plenty of space for the whole crew's belongings! Our flat fee of $3 per locker, no matter how long you're on the water, will cover it!
Our single kayaks, the Crescent Splash I, has a max capacity of 250lbs.
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!

This tour meets at our shop located at 131 River Street Chattanooga, TN 37405. Please park in Coolidge Park or Renaissance Park (allow ample time to find a parking spot). Weekends will prove to be more difficult, but Coolidge Park is a great place to shop, relax, or play games before your scheduled rental.
For 2021, 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.
Please arrive in our store front at 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 completed online 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.
