Newly formed Boathouse Paddle Co. has announced that it will offer rental canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) at Forest Park’s The Boathouse beginning on May 4, in addition to the continuation of traditional paddleboats.
“After the success of our pop-up paddleboard rental last summer, we are so excited to be able to partner with Sugarfire [new operators of The Boathouse] to bring these great paddle activities to the best urban park in the country,” said Roo Yawitz, general manager of Boathouse Paddle Co. as well as Big Muddy Adventures.
Yawitz said Boathouse Paddle Co. also plans to introduce special programs including SUP yoga, guided tours and moonlight paddles later this summer.
Paddleboat, canoe and extra-large paddleboards will be $20 for the first hour. Kayaks and regular paddleboards will be $15 for the first hour. Additional hours for all boats will be $15. Rentals will be available from 11 a.m. to sunset daily.
