The best way to experience Chattanooga, The Scenic City, is on 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.
Tandem Kayaks are $39/1HR, $15 per additional rental hour. $99 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!
When Selecting Tickets -- you select "1" ticket for one tandem kayak, it is in fact for 2 seats, so your ONE ticket covers 2 people. When you rent from us, the cost is per CRAFT, not per person. (excludes Sunrise/Sunset/Moonlight Tours)
Our tandem kayaks, the Crescent Splash II, have a max capacity of 500lbs.
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 by you're welcome to go bare foot. Stay hydrated and be sure to get lots of incredible photos!
