Kayak & SUP Rental Services
Believe it or not, one of the best ways to explore the Sonoran Desert is on the water. Within the Phoenix area there is easy access to Tempe Town Lake, the Lower Salt River, the Lower Verde River, Lake Pleasant and Saguaro Lake to enjoy a day on the water. Renting a kayak or stand-up paddleboard gives you the option to explore the desert’s waterways at your own pace.
Lower Salt River Delivery & Shuttle
Let us make your experience kayaking on the river even easier. River delivery and shuttle service is a pre-scheduled service available to our rental customers with advance reservation. We will meet you at a defined location on the Salt River with your rental equipment and 1 parking pass for your group’s car. An REI staff member will shuttle you from your take out location back to your car.
Book your rental kayak or SUP first and then inquire over the phone about river delivery and shuttle.
