Inflatable Kayaks
The best watercraft for newbies and pros on the river. Inflatable Kayaks or “Duckies” are the most stable and maneuverable watercraft you can take out on the river. We recommend duckies for anyone from kids to adults. We also have double duckies available so you can spend all day with your best pal.
