Reserve Tubes, Canoes & Kayaks

Saco River Conditions Update ... We received some much needed rain last night and the river has come up to a pretty good level. We are only sending tubes out of the water and air temperature combined is over 120 degrees. All other trips are a go! Fall is a great time to paddle. Come join us!

Please remember that reservations are still highly recommended for all rental and service products. We are also on an off-season schedule that changes with conditions and demand. Scheduling for tube trip may change daily as we continue through late season. Those with their own equipment should also reserve and keep in contact with us. Enjoy the river and Please ... Leave no Trace!
