Double Duckies

For the confident paddler who wants to double up with their child, spouse, or friend. This inflatable double kayak is ideal for 2 people, and you can fit a 3rd small kiddo, too. Double ducks are lighter, float higher in the water and are more responsive than rafts. Huge fun!

$25 adult
$20 child – under age 12 only


Single Duckies

Go solo and create your own adventure. Single inflatable kayaks are more stable than hard plastic kayaks while allowing you to easily move through the rapids. These lightweight highly maneuverable duckies are an absolute blast to paddle on the “Tuck”!

$30 – for age 12 and up only
