Canoe & Kayak Rentals

Below are retail shops, rentals shops or marinas that deal with kayaks & canoes; some of them may also offer classes or instruction. Sierra Lakes or Central Valley Reservoirs can get quite windy in the afternoons, so always plan an early morning departure, or sunset paddle. Kayaking is excellent upper body workout.
