Canoe & Kayak Rental Services

Previously Adventure Bound Canoe

Along with our professionally guided trips, we also cater to self-guided trips and gladly provide basic information, advice, logistical support, and rental equipment to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for our clients.

Our full-service canoe & kayak supply can outfit any size trip from a single kayak to large family reunions, scout troops, and church groups. We have a huge fleet of canoes and kayaks as well as a full line of camping gear and supplies from coolers to firewood and dry bags. We deliver and pick up our rental canoes at no extra charge.

Shuttle Pricing

There is just nothing that beats the convenience of someone else driving you and your stuff back up the road after your time on the water. We use 10 passenger vans to run our shuttles, which usually makes booking a shuttle with us the most economical method to get you and your stuff back to your vehicle at the put-in. The savings with this method is due to our ability to combine groups and divide the cost among the passengers. While we can’t guarantee you will be sharing a van, odds are you will. We also provide canoe trailers with gear boxes. The same goes for private vehicle shuttles. Most likely we will be able to drive your vehicle down to the take-out in a caravan thus bringing down the cost for everybody.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the sections of the river?

The river is separated into 3 different sections that are all give or take 50 miles.

  • Fort Benton to Coal Banks- Beautifully maintained farm land with an abundant supply of birds and wild life. This section you will need at least 2 days and 1 night.
  • Coal Banks to Judith Landing- This is the Historic White Cliff sections with amazing scenes of visionary enchantment. This section you will need at least 3 days and 2 nights. However, we suggest 4 days and 3 nights for hiking and relaxing.
  • Judith Landing to James Kipp Recreation- This is where the river widens into the badlands. There is big horn sheep, homesteads and a remote primitive feel about it. This section of river you need at least 3 days and 2 nights.

Is there fishing?

There is warm water fishing for Walleye, Carp, and Golden Eye.

Is the water filterable?

No! You will need to pack water with you for your entire trip. Our recommendation is a gallon per person per day.

Where can we get water on the river?

Coal Banks and James Kipp Recreation have water stations.

Where are the good places to camp?

There are a lot of great places to camp and we would be more than happy to sit down with you and go over the map and your options.

What do we do with trash?

There are garbage dump locations at Coal Banks, Judith Landing, and James Kipp Recreation.

What bathroom system do you suggest?

Due to strictly packing in and packing out human waste you will need to bring your own system. We use the ‘Wag Bag’ system and have those for sale.

What can we fit in one of your canoes?

You should be able to fit 2 water jugs, a cooler, a cube, 2 big dry bags, 2 small day bags, 2 camp chairs and firewood. View canoe dimensions here

Can we bring dogs?

We all love our fur babies (I love dogs too). You can bring your dog but be aware of the drawbacks to doing so. Rattlesnakes pose a real threat to unrestrained, curious dogs. Dogs will be walking through a lot of mud (and tracking it into the tent) and some of the hikes are too difficult for dogs (require some climbing). You need to pick up dog waste just like you would human waste (pack in, pack out). We allow dogs in the vans but will count them as a person when splitting shuttle costs.
