Each tour has its own majestic character. We offer trips to suit first-time paddlers and experts alike! Paddle at your own pace and enjoy the scenery and the water. There are many places to pull your boat out of the water, eat a picnic lunch, go swimming, fishing, take photos or just soak up the sun. You can paddle a solo kayak, tandem kayak or canoe!


Self Guided River Float

Paddle one of the most scenic stretches of river in the Northeast! A Covered bridge and old farms make this river a true Vermont treasure. This is a gentle, slow-moving river and is perfect for the beginner paddler. As you float slowly through the lush New England landscape you will be awed by views of the Green Mountains all around you. Paddle a solo kayak, tandem kayak or canoe.


8 Mile River Float


Maple Ice Cream Float

After your paddle with a canoe or kayak stop by and experience some of Vermont's premier products, a Maple Creemee, and Quality Maple Syrup. 

Since 1818 the Quarry Hill Farm family has been dedicated to providing the highest quality Vermont products. From their certified organic Vermont maple syrup to their award-winning organic dairy, they only believe in the best. Schedule a tour of their sugarhouse and dairy barn or simply stop into their farm store after your paddle to browse a selection of the best Vermont products including artisan gelato, farm fresh milk, espresso and coffee drinks, maple syrup, souvenirs, clothing, and so much more.
