Rates, Trip Descriptions and General Info
Most kayaks are one man vessels, where the paddler sits down in the boat. They are generally easier to maneuver, but a little bit tippier than a canoe. When handled by an experienced paddler, kayaks tend to be faster then canoes.
All of our kayaks are good for beginners. The paddler is not sealed in the cockpit and no rolling is necessary.
There are two trip options. Both trips are good for beginners. The Hocking River is generally a calm smooth river with a few riffles, islands and sand bars. The stretch the trips run on is Class I. We transport you upstream and you canoe back to the building and your car with the current. All paddling times are approximate, based on the average time of an average paddler in average river conditions. Both trips run on the Hocking River. Adverse river conditions may make an alternate waterway necessary. Both trips provide great fishing opportunities.
Trip A – Crockett’s Trip
Miles: 5 Approximate Paddling Time: 1.5 hours.
Follow the scenic Hocking River lined by trees and fields. There are several islands and sandbars near the start of the trip that make great stopping places for a little exploration or a picnic lunch. This is a great beginner’s trip, especially for young children, nervous adults, and those short on time. Available by canoe, kayak or raft. See map of the trip.

Trip B – Rockbridge Trip

Our most popular trip has two extra miles on the scenic Hocking River. There are more islands and sandbars, a few narrow areas, and more riffles, as well as several viewing spots for observing people on the zip line. It also provides an opportunity to hike up and see the Natural Rock Bridge, a natural work of art. See map of the trip.
