Canoe, Kayak & Tube Rentals

Row, row, row your boat

We are the southeastern most canoe and kayak livery on the Little Miami. We’ll admit we’re biased, but we think it’s the prettiest part of Ohio’s most beautiful river.

WE OFFER THREE TRIPS

 

Terrell’s Short Trip

$21/person plus sales tax (same price whether you are canoeing or kayaking, there is no price difference)

All canoes must have at least 2 paying customers. Kids age 11 and under (up to 2 of them) can ride for free in the middle of the canoe as long as there are 2 paying customers in the canoe.

(2.1 miles)

(Trip ends at your car)

Perfect for families with young children, beginners, or those wanting to enjoy a quick outing.

Duration: 45 min-75 min

The time frames given as the “Duration” are fairly accurate estimates.

The time it takes for you to return depends on two things:

  1. river conditions and,
  2. how often you use your motor (paddle).

There is no designated time limit on any trip. All we ask is that you be back by dinner (6 p.m. Monday thru Friday and 7 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays).

RIDER REMINDERS

N

Bring trash bags or use one of ours – the Little Miami has been a State Scenic River for over 40 years. We’d like to keep it that way.

N

Wear old clothes and shoes – because the river water is wet (who knew?)

N

Bring straps for your coolers – because heavy coolers can sink (who knew?)

N

Wear sunscreen – because the sun can cause sunburn (who knew?)

N

Don’t take your car keys or your wallet – unless you plan on paddling home.

N

Lifejackets are for safety, not for connecting canoes – please wear one at all times.

N

No styrofoam coolers, no glass bottles, no alcohol – all three can have lasting ill effects on the river’s beauty.

N

Please be courteous to other riders and respect private property.
