Gear Rentals

We offer a wide range of gear rentals. We can outfit you for a mellow float for a few hours or an intense multi-day adventure. Use the menu on the left side of this page to see the kinds of rentals we have.

Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe is happy to provide demo and rental boats and equipment to its customers. These are the requirements of this program:

- Paddlers must have previous experience – Except at Tualatin  Brown’s ferry Park, or Ridgefield
- Paddling in surf conditions or whitewater is permitted with proper qualification.
- We may limit the available rivers and stretches of those rivers that are OK to paddle.
- Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe must approve your itinerary.
- Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe requires a signed release of liability and a security deposit for each participant.
- Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe reserves the right to refuse a rental due to an inadequate boat transportation system, intoxication, or lack of experience

We want you to try before you buy! If you have a specific boat in mind, come on out to our Jantzen Beach store for a test paddle. If you demo a boat in the water behind the store there is no charge.
