The inflatable kayak rental option is the perfect vessel for someone new to whitewater boating who wants to experience the fun and excitement of paddling. See our shop location.
Consider taking an inflatable kayak or “ducky” along for your next extended raft trip or single-day jaunt. They are a great way to get the kids out enjoying the river on their own, or to break up a long day as a passenger on a raft. New paddlers will easily bob down Class II+ rapids and in the event of a flip, it is relatively easy to self-rescue.
Advantages an inflatable kayak has over other rental options: These kayaks literally plow through holes that would normally flip a hard shell kayak making them a less-stressful, all-fun way to get down the river.
Remember, when you rent with Tumalo Creek, you become a friend of the shop which means you get hooked up, including:

• No travel time required. With the Deschutes River flowing past Tumalo Creek’s back door, guests have the luxury of arriving to an easily found parking space and disembarking within minutes of selecting a rental boat or board.
• Staff is happy to give you a few pointers after you have chosen a boat or board to rent. For further instruction, please see our class offerings.
• Staff are available to assist in securing your rental to a roof rack with cross bars atop your vehicle for those renting for an off site self guided excursion.
