Types of trips



These trips start from our location on the Windsor Boat Ramp. You will paddle down through the last section of the Farmington River before entering the Connecticut River. From there you will continue a nice easy paddle to the Bissell Bridge. If you'd like a longer trip you can continue going down stream past downtown Hartford until you reach Great River Park in East Hartford where we will pick you up. Usually this trip takes around 2 - 3 1/2 hours depending on where you decide to get out. There are no rapids in this section so beginners will feel comfortable.

The Poquonock

For this trip you will park at our location at The Windsor Boat Ramp. We will shuttle you up to the Poquonock section of the Farmington River where we will send you off. From there you will paddle down about 6 miles back to where your car is parked, going through occasional sections of class 1 and class 2 rapids. This trip is not recommended for beginners as the fast moving section can be a bit technical at times

Moonlight Trips

Experience the tranquility and wonder of being on the Farmington River at night. With the moon and stars above you can glide through the calm waters watching the fireflys and listening to the sounds of nature. This trip is on a different section of the Farmington River from our day rentals. Moonlight trips start at the Pinchot Sycamore Tree in Simsbury and go down about 2 miles through some of the calmest waters the Farmington River has to offer. We wait for you at the pickup location to bring you back to your car when you are done. Flashlights and head lamps can be provided free of charge or you can bring your own.

Multi-day rentals

If your going on a trip and you'd like a canoe or kayak to take with you, we've got you covered. You can either come by and pick it up if you have a means of hauling it, or we can deliver it to you if it's within the CT/MA/RI area. Please call us for rates
