The Canoe Outpost offers a variety of trips on several different waterways. The Little Manatee is where we do most of our paddling and it is also where we live but home, at least for the day, can be anywhere a paddle hits the water.
We welcome all paddlers from the solo kayaker to groups of up to 100. Boat owners needing a simple shuttle service to corporate events needing full service and catering. We also offer some specialty trips like moonlight dinner paddle trips. So, check out our trip and service offerings and come play in the waters today. What ever your paddling needs, we will work with you-and for you-to provide the best experience possible.
Our prices are per boat and not per person. All rental boat rates include service and transportation, life jackets, cushions and paddles appropriate to the boat and the paddlers. We do not charge by time as we want you to relax and enjoy yourselves. Kayaks are singles or doubles only and have limited gear space. We offer both sit in or sit on top style kayaks that are designed to be very stable. Call us if you have specific occupancy or load questions. These rates cover most of our rental fleet. At times we may have specialty or high end boats available at different prices.
Times will vary depending on the trip you choose. Mouse over the “Trips” selection on the home page banner to see all available trips.
Hourly rentals are available, but we encourage you to experience a full trip, one way with the current and take advantage of our services and transportation. For rentals beginning and ending at the Canoe Outpost, the cost is $28 for a 1/2 day of up to 4 hours for a canoe or double kayak, $22 for a half day of up to 4 hours for a single kayak.
