Unguided paddle trips

We offer shuttle service and boat rentals for “unguided” paddle trips on Santa Fe River, every day during normal business hours (see hours on home page).

Reservations are not required, however, it will make things go much quicker if you’ll call ahead to let us know you are coming. Call (386) 454-0611 and we’ll be ready for you.
