Canoe Rentals

Canoes, Kayaks, and SUP Boards for Rent in Ely

If you're tired of carrying a heavy canoe across portages and paddling a noisy, cold aluminum boat, we've got just the thing for you. The Kevlar® canoes we rent are "user friendly." They are stable, easy to paddle, fast and, best of all, LIGHTWEIGHT. Boundary Waters Canoe Tripping involves both paddling and portaging. A sleek, 42-lb Kevlar® canoe takes the strain out of paddling and the pain out of portaging. Do you have an odd number of people? Try our solo boats or our three person, 20', three seater that weighs only 55 lbs. We also offer touring kayaks for trips into the Boundary Waters.

For the economy-minded, we also offer some of the same streamlined canoes made with Royalex®. They are heavier than their Kevlar® counterparts, but still lighter than most aluminum or plastic canoes. Even if you own all the other gear you need for a wilderness trip, consider using a canoe from our fleet on your next expedition.

Wenonah, Souris River and Northstar (by Ted Bell) make many different hull designs to custom fit paddlers' every need. We specialize in fitting you into the boat that will make your BWCAW or Quetico Canoe Camping Trip the most comfortable for you.

Rent canoes, kayaks, or SUP boards for a day or a week or longer.


NOTE:  New fleet each season.  Included are very comfortable MTI Java PFDs, carbon or wooden bent shaft paddles, yoke pads, as well as straps and blocks to get canoes on vehicles.  Only the best gear and service for our clients.  Give us a try!  Paddle on!!

"Thanks so much for your terrific service.  You guys rock.  Great communication, warm and friendly personalities, care and concern for clients, terrific equipment -- I enthusiastically endorse and appreciate your help in making our trips enjoyable."   - Mark Timmerman, Lone Rock, WI.
