Kayak Rentals - Affordable and Fun!

It is kayak rental season! The weather is getting nicer and it's time to get out on the river and lake! We have just what you need to get started on your day of adventure on the water for an inexpensive price!

We have inflatable kayak rentals for use for a day or multi day on the river. If floating the river is not your speed we have recreational hard shell lake kayaks for rental too. Starting in June we will be renting out Stand Up Paddleboards. Come try a SUP for a new experience on the water!

Don't miss out on getting out on the water this year! Make sure you reserve your rental early. Weekends some boats are sold out. All rentals include a life jacket and paddle.

We offer SUP rentals and SUP trips on the Rogue River. We rent high quality Inflatable Kayaks, and Recreational Kayaks from our retail location.

Kayaking in Oregon and Northern California.
Learn flat water paddling techniques and enjoy fishing and birdwatching from your kayak.


Because not everyone is into the thrill of whitewater, we can teach you how to paddle a sea kayak, recreational kayak, or a sit-on-top kayak. Learn to paddle on pristine high mountain lakes, calm moving water, access hidden coves, and lazy rivers. Recreational Kayaking Skills is geared to the beginner recreational boater who is interested in paddling on lakes for birdwatching, fishing, or just relaxing. Touring Kayak Skills is for those interested in learning open water rescue and basic navigation skills. No experience is required for either of these courses.


Kokopelli is dedicated to upholding our reputation as a highly respected kayak instructional program and guide service. We are committed to the environment that we work and play in. We hope to instill the same love for boating that we have in you. We invite you to join us for a lifetime of excitement and unforgettable memories.
