I don’t have a roof rack, can I still rent a boat?

Yes! The cost of your rental of a canoe, kayak, hard-top SUP, or surfboard includes foam blocks and straps to secure the watercraft to your vehicle. An employee will help show you to load and unload the boat from your vehicle.

I have a truck, can I still rent a boat?

Yes! We’ll work with your vehicle to figure out how to best attach the canoe, kayak, or hard-top SUP.

Where should I go?

Great question! The Gainesville area is a great place for paddling and swimming in world-class springs. Give us a call during business hours for recommendations. Naturalatlas.com is a great resource for additional information on outdoor recreation in the US.
