Hourly rental: We encourage you to experience a full trip, one way with the current and take advantage of our services and transportation. However if you would like to rent a boat to paddle around, starting and stopping your paddling at the same point, we do offer 1/2 or full day hourly rentals also. For rentals beginning and ending at the Canoe Outpost, for a canoe or double kayak, the cost is $26 for a 1/2 day of up to 4 hours and $39 for a full day of up to 8 hours. For single kayaks, the cost is $20 for a half day of up to 4 hours and $30 for a full day of up to 8 hours. Unlike the hourly rentals at the state park, our staff will handle all the equipment for you and assist you in launching and landing and all boats and equipment are cleaned after each use. Hourly rentals from the Canoe Outpost launch from 9:00 - 3:00 daily and must be returned by 5:00. If you prefer, you may begin and end your trip at our Trip 1 pickup point located 6 miles downstream for an additional $10 transportation charge per boat. This option is attractive for folks interested in fishing and may have a slight increased chance of seeing manatees. Less current, turns and obstructions also make this a good beginner level paddling area.
Off-Site Rentals: We do rent boats for off-site usage at Trip 1 rates for each 24 hour period. Rent for a week and get 2 days free. We require a charge card deposit equal to the value of the boat you choose.
River Camping: Boat rentals for river camping are charged at the Trip 1 rates for each day or part of a day. There is no charge for the actual primitive camping on the river.
