Canoe/Kayak Rentals

Friends of the Kaw is happy to list any canoe and kayak rental company doing business on the Kansas River because it promotes recreation on the Kansas River Water Trail. We hope that you have a wonderful experience with which ever company you choose but we have no affiliation with the businesses.  We also hope that folks floating on the Kansas River will remember to be eco-friendly (please carry out all trash) and provide a pleasant environment so EVERYONE can continue to enjoy one of Kansas’ most valuable natural resources.
