Paddle Board and Kayak Rentals in Saugatuck and Douglas, MI

Have Fun on the Kalamazoo River

Saugatuck and Douglas are all about the water. We have a great way to experience the fun and beauty of this area.

The Kalamazoo River

We offer kayak trips anywhere from one to eight hours. You will arrive at Wade’s Bayou in Downtown Douglas, be outfitted with one of our comfortable and stable kayaks and be transported to one of our put ins upriver. Our most popular trip starts at the charming town of New Richmond with it’s restored historic swing bridge. You will then spend about three hours leisurely drifting downstream, returning to Douglas. For details about trips please visit our Trips page.
