How old must you be to rent a Kayak?
- Be sure to bring plenty of water!
- Come early if you'd like to bring a large group -- kayaks are first come, first serve. Alternatively, you can pre-reserve kayaks by calling ahead beforehand.
- Leave your purse / wallets in the car, or bring a lock with you for the lockers on site.
- Bring an extra large ziplock bag for your wallet, cellphones and cameras -- even a small amount of water can permanently damage your electronics!
- Dress in cool clothing.
- For extra protection, bring sun block, sunglasses and a hat
- If you're new to kayaking and worried about blisters, bring an extra pair of workout gloves for your hands
- Careful! You can bring food and drinks, but glass containers and alcohol are not allowed.
Children under 9 years old must ride with someone 16 years old or older.I've never been on a kayak before, can I still rent on on my own?
Yes! Most people get the hang of kayaking pretty quickly, and don't require previous experience or training.Are dogs allowed?
Yes! Dogs can ride in the kayaks. The Woodlands Dog Park Club has generously donated dog life vests for dogs of any size. There is no additional charge for furry friend kayakers.Riva Row Boathouse Location & Amenities:

Wish the hours would be 7am(on weekends) - to 8pm in the summer for the cooler hours. On Towne Lake in Austin last week, the dock was full at 8. We got an early start and were on the water at 7. Get time to be kayaking!!

If you are going to advertise the kayaking it truly needs to be better with less noise and longer for people to get the full affect.
