Dress to get wet. A bathing suit, shorts and a t-shirt with sneakers or water shoes work well on a warm summer day. Always bring a fleece top or wool sweater, windbreaker and wool socks in case the weather turns cooler. Bring a towel and an extra set of clothing to change into after your trip. We provide paddles and personal floatation devices (PFDs). All guests using a kayak rental are required to wear their PFD at all times when on the water. Vermont State Law requires that one PFD per person be on each kayak at all times and that children under the age of 13 wear a PFD at all times.

Head out on the water with Zoar Adventure Center's light touring kayaks to explore the lakes of Southern Vermont. These kayaks provide a smooth kayaking experience for both novice and experienced paddlers. Take the whole day to paddle for miles, or go out for a more leisurely adventure on the water. Whatever your plans for the day, our touring kayaks will help make them a reality.
We provide you with a kayak, paddle, and personal flotation device for the price of the rental. For an additional per-person charge of $8, we also provide a shuttle service to and from the water.
