Southwest Michigan Kayak & Paddleboard Rentals

Escape down the beautiful Paw Paw River
or paddle New Buffalo’s incredible beach


Looking for something unique and fun to do in Southwest Michigan?

Experience what most visitors – and locals – never get to see as you paddle down a mellow, winding river or explore one of our area’s most beautiful beaches!

Choose from the following rental equipment:

  • Kayaks – available in both one- or two-person configurations with a stable, “sit-on-top” style for comfort; $20 per hour for one-person kayak, $25 per hour for two-person kayak.
  • Stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) – oversized, beginner-friendly boards used with long, canoe-like paddles; $20 per hour.

Ideal for any age or skill level, both kayaks and stand-up paddleboards allow paddlers to explore any body of water at their own pace. Our trained staff will give your group an orientation before you hit the water.

All equipment, including paddles and lifejackets, is provided at the rental sites. Reservations for groups of less than 20 are not necessary or accepted – just show up, and you’ll be on your way! For groups of 20 or more, please request a quick quote to set up a reservation. We can handle very large groups – up to 70 people! Get more info on large group outings here.
