No longer do you have to rent, transport, and launch your vessel to enjoy Calgary’s Bow River. Simply book your ride online and arrive on location. All of your safety gear and equipment will be ready and waiting for you. At the end of your float, we will be waiting for you and will take your gear and you are free to go - no hauling, no transporting - totally hassle free!
We provide a hassle free kayak and raft rental, we situated along the Bow River banks.
Your 2-3 hr trip starts at Shouldice Park, and ends at St Patrick's Island. We provide all-inclusive 2-3 hr self-guided, or guided, river floats through the heart of downtown Calgary.
Our fleet includes single kayaks, double kayaks, standup paddle boards (SUPs), small, medium or large rafts accommodating between 2 and 12 people. Rentals with the Paddle Station include your vessel, paddles and safety gear. That's right, besides the raft, we don't charge you for all the other items like others do.
All you have to do is book your vessel here, show up, and leave the rest to us. Simple!
We take the headaches out of enjoying a day on the Bow River - an activity enjoyed by over 15,000 locals and tourists each summer.
"Because of Paddle Station, I was out on the river a few times this summer. It was glorious. This is the perfect solution for someone interested in occasionally (or even regularly) getting out on the river who does not want the expense and hassle of buying, storing and transporting a kayak. So easy, so fun, such great staff."
