Here at Riverside Canoe, we can accommodate large groups including church groups, businesses, scouts, schools, family reunions, etc. We can help you plan a paddling or tube floating excursion for a fun day on the river. If your group would like more than one day, we can help you coordinate overnight stays as well.
Sorry, for safety reasons we do not allow children under 3 years of age in our canoes/kayaks or tubes.
