Reserve a Canoe or Kayak

Don't own your own kayak or canoe but still want to have fun? Buffalo River Outfitters offers one day and multi-day rentals of our canoes and kayaks for your summertime fun needs! Reserving a canoe or kayak doesn't have to be a hassle. With low costs and awesome rates, we won't break the bank. To reserve a canoe or any other vessel, call our office! Check out our prices below and come see us at Buffalo River Outfitters!

Every canoe, kayak, raft, or vessel must have a life vest, considered a personal flotation device, for each person on board the floating boat. Children under age 13 must wear a securely fastened life vest while on board any floating device. All life vests must be U.S. Coast Guard approved, in safe and usable condition, and of proper size for the person wearing it.
