Paddling at sunset and by the light of the moon are magical experiences and great for spotting wildlife that emerges at dusk! On selected dates we accept reservations to launch your own boat or rent a kayak, canoe, or paddleboard for 1½ hours during special hours: 7:00 - 9:00 pm in June - July and 6:30 - 8:30 pm in August.
Renters receive glowing sticks, paddles, and PFDs which must be worn and securely fastened at all times. Those self-launching also receive glowing sticks and are required to wear PFDs. Though our shop is located on a calm stretch of the Farmington River, paddlers must know how to swim. There is no lifeguard on duty.
