Canoe and Kayak rentals


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,  axes, hatchets, saws and much more.  For your added peace 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
