Kayaking Day Trips

Saco Canoe Rental Company has the largest kayak rental fleet in North Conway, NH. We feature brand new Old Town and Necky Kayaks. Our Necky Rip Kayaks are light weight and track straight. They feature cup holders, foot pegs, adjustable seats and an access hatch. Our 14 ft touring kayaks feature dry storage and are better for longer paddles or area lakes.

The meandering waters of the Saco River is great for first time kayakers. The average depth is 3 feet deep. Along the way you can stop and picnic at one of the many sand beaches or rope swing.
