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.



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.



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.)
