We do rent Canoes, kayaks, boats, motors, bikes and all sorts of camping equipment for the day or for multi-day trips but outfitting you for a personal river trip in the fabulous Yukon wilderness is our specialty – we’ve been doing it since 1974.
Not only can we supply you up with the perfect canoe or kayak for the adventure but we also have a great selection of support equipment for rent or sale in our downtown riverside store. An old acquaintance of ours used to say, “any fool can be uncomfortable,” we can only agree. We rent dry-bags and waterproof barrels in various sizes, cook and camp kits, axes, saws and much more. For your added piece of mind we have an optional trip damage waiver that covers the accidental loss or damage to our equipment during your time on the river.
The Clipper” Yukon” (16.8ft/5.12m) and the Old Town “Discovery” (16.9ft/5.15m) are our standard rental canoes. Need a larger family canoe? Upgrades are available to our Clipper Mackenzie 18.6ft/5.66m and 20.0ft/6.09m models that can be fitted with a third seat. We also rent the Wenonah, Mad River, Hellman and Scott Canoes.
The Current Designs “Storm” (18ft/5.18m) is our standard rental kayak but we also have the Delta composites and the Necky and Seaward kayaks. For doubles we rent the Delta 20T, the Seaward Passat G3 and the Current Designs Vision.
