Canoe

Canoes are a classic way to travel down the Little Miami River - and for good reason. You can easily pack all the picnic supplies you need for a long, lazy day on the river. Plus, canoes can easily hold Mom, Dad and a couple of kids.

Kayak

Kayaks are growing in popularity mainly because they are so much fun to paddle. They're quick, responsive and easy to get into and out of if you want to do some swimming or exploring. We have traditional sit-in kayaks and the very popular sit-on kayaks.

Raft

Rafts are great for group trips down the river. You can easily seat six people and still have room for packing lunch for your whole group. (Available only on Blue Jacket's Best 3.5 Mile trip.)

How we are Handling Covid 19

After careful thought & consideration, we have created our plan of action related to operating during COVID-19.
 
Regulations are as follows:
-Reservation are no longer required for weekdays, but are still required for weekends.
-We will be offering single kayaks, tandem kayaks, canoes & rafts.
-We will ONLY be offering our 3.5 mile trip at this time.
-Unfortunately, NO dogs due to the State of Ohio Covid Operating Guidelines for Canoe Liveries.
-Unfortunately, NO transporting of privately owned watercraft due to State of Ohio Covid Operating Guidelines for Canoe Liveries.
-FACE COVERING REQUIRED DURING TRANSPORTATION IN THE BUS OR VAN (Due to the State of Ohio Face Covering Order issued 7-23-2020)
-We will be transporting people in vehicles with reduced capacity to satisfy social distancing needs.
-We WILL be sanitizing every life jacket & paddle after every single use.
-While all of the above is standard operating procedures, the reality is that as an OUTDOOR recreation facility, many of our customers are choosing to not wear a face covering when not in a van or bus. While we encourage everyone to maintain the distance between people recommendation, many while in an OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT do not. If this makes you uncomfortable, we recommend not visiting us during this season, as we do not want you to be disappointed.
 
Please be patient with us as we work out the kinks & try adhere to these very new regulations. Thank you for your patience & loyalty. We really look forward to seeing you again!
