Canoes & Kayaks

Due to limited resources, we are not providing canoe or kayak adventures for the 2021 season.

If you are camping with us and bring a canoe or kayak, you can put yourself in the river at various public river access points and float back to the campground. Google Lindsey Bridge, Madison NC / 704 Bridge, Madison NC or Settle Bridge for Dan River public access points.  You will need to coordinate putting yourselves in the river using your own vehicles.

Shuttle Service For Personal Kayaks & Canoes

We have suspended shuttle service for personal vessels (kayaks & canoes) for the 2021 season. Please do not ask or offer money to the staff to shuttle you or your vessels to one of the public river access points.

Rental Policy

When you reserve / book a river adventure you are renting equipment from Dan River Adventures. You are responsible for the equipment until it is returned to us. Equipment may include; tubes, canoes, kayaks, paddles, coolers, tubes for cooler flotation or personal flotation devices (life vest). In the rare event a tube is punctured and deflates, it is your responsibility, if possible, to retain the tube and return it to us.

We understand that accidents happen and that the river is unpredictable. Damage to equipment due to negligence, cigarettes, tied together tubes, or sharp objects will be billed to individuals accordingly. Customers are responsible for getting the equipment out of the river and up to the top of the river access. Equipment left in the river that floats downstream is considered lost and the customer will be billed accordingly.
