Texas Kayak and Canoe Rentals and Lessons

Canoeing and kayaking in Texas is growing rapidly because Texas offers so many options for enjoying this fun sport, so what are you waiting for why not rent a kayak or canoe and give it a try. You can rent canoes and kayaks to try on over 120 Texas lakes; paddle down any of the popular rivers like the Trinity, Brazos, Guadalupe, or the Colorado river; or kayak in the bays, marshes, or even the Gulf of Mexico surf; or enjoy a paddle on the Texas Paddling Trails. You'll find canoe or kayak rentals at resorts, Texas State Parks, private campgrounds, boat rental locations, river outfitters, and more.
