Boat Rental

We have a small fleet of flatwater and whitewater canoes and kayaks available for rent to club members, or to anyone participating in a club trip, at reasonable prices.

All rentals must be arranged in advance; if you're interested, contact Al Howcroft (413.256.1301, alberth@housing.umass.edu).

All rentals include PFD ("life jacket" for you old-schoolers), paddle(s), helmet, and spray skirt as appropriate for the particular boat. Note that you will need some way to transport the boat, like a roof rack and ropes!
