Frequently Asked Questions:
Reservations. Reservations are required. If you know the trip you want to do, send your request to: booking@TwinCitiesKayaking.com Include your name, phone, number of people, and the trip you want to do. A confirmation with full details and location map links will be sent to you. If you aren't sure what trip you want to do, just give us a call or email and we will help guide you!
Launch Time. Your reservation confirmation will list your launch time. We have spaced launch times for individual groups. Late arrivals will go to end of the launch line. If you run into traffic or have trouble finding us, just give us a call at 612-708-2781. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late without calling, we will consider you a no-show.
Location. We do not have one physical location but are all-mobile and deliver kayaks to many great locations around the Twin Cities. See posts under Book A Trip for descriptions of each location/outing. Detailed directions and map link will be provided when you make your reservation. When you arrive for your reserved outing, just look for our colorful trailer full of kayaks!
Transportation. We transport kayaks but not people. All river and creek trips require that you arrange transportation for yourself at both ends. Most groups use two cars and leave one at the end and carpool to the start; many use Uber, and some bike or have friends/family drive them. We meet you at the start with the kayaks and pick them up at the end.
Our Kayaks. We use 10 foot, sit-in, single-person recreational kayaks. They are quite stable and maneuverable. If someone in your party is over 250 pounds, please let us know when you make the reservation. Tandem (2 person) kayaks are available on some of our Mississippi River trips. Tandems must be requested in advance when you make the reservation.
What to bring. We will send a detailed list of what to wear and bring when you make your reservation. In general, dress for the weather and bring sunscreen and a hat if you will need it. Be sure to bring along plenty of water for each paddler and light snacks/energy bars. Kayaks have cup holders and room to store a small soft-sided cooler.
