How to rent a boat

Introduction

To help newcomers experience paddling without a substantial investment, we rent boats for use on our trips. All you need to do to try paddling is sign up for a trip and ask to rent a boat!

Our boats come in three categories: whitewater, sea kayaks, and touring.

Whitewater boats (canoes and kayaks) are designed for whitewater with tough hulls (for hitting rocks) and typically have rocker for quick turning ability. These boats usually have flotation installed.

Note: these boats are restricted to use on up to class II rivers (or up to class III if you have a class III rating or above).

Sea kayaks are long sleek boats with hulls that are designed for going straight on open water. They have foot-activated rudders for tracking or turning assistance. They also have storage compartments for gear.

Touring boats can be kayaks or canoes. They are user-friendly boats suitable for flat-water rivers or open water.

Shredder

The club also has a Shredder in our rental fleet. This is a two person inflatable cataraft style paddle boat. It is a very user friendly boat and is suitable for up to class IV water.

The rental for this boat is $20/day. It comes with paddles, PFDs, and air pumps (electric & hand pump). Click here to view the Shredder Rental Policy.

Fees - and What's Included

The rental charge is $10 per day for all boats except the sea kayaks (they are $20 per day) and the Shredder. The rental charge for the trailer is $10 per day. Boats and equipment are stored in various locations in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. The renters are responsible for picking up and returning the boats to their storage locations in time for their next scheduled use. All rental boats come with the PFDs and paddles. Whitewater kayaks also come with spray skirts.
