  • Ages 5+ are welcome in the front seat of a two-person kayak with one adult in the rear seat.

  • Ages 18+ are welcome to paddle without an adult present.
  • Your leashed dogs are welcome to join you on the kayak.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes early so we can get you out on the water on time. Late arrivals will forfeit that time on the water, as our kayaks are usually booked for the following time slot.
  • Because we launch from a beach area, your feet will definitely get wet. You may also get wet while kayaking. Please dress appropriately!
  • A life vest must be worn by all paddlers, at all times. We have them for everyone, but you may also bring your own, if you prefer. Our life vests are not waterproof.
  • Providence Kayak is not responsible for any belongings that you bring with you, including cell phones and wallets. Please leave your valuables at home.
  • If you choose to bring items with you on the kayaks, you do so at your own risk.

  • Our rentals are typically still available in light rain and other moderate weather conditions. We may cancel your rental up to one hour prior to the start time, in the event of severe or unsafe weather conditions. If we cancel your rental due to weather, you may reschedule, subject to availability, or receive a full refund.
  • We are located inside the Lincoln Woods State Park.
  • Our Rental Boathouse is located next to the Concession/Bathhouse/First Aid buildings at the beach area, approximately .6 mile inside the park.
