We rented kayaks and found the folks at Rum 138 are passionate about what they do and full of helpful information. Great deal for equipment, pick up and drop off. Give yourself some extra time to look at local art in the shop.

We've been to Rum 138 twice and each time gets better! What a great way to enjoy real Florida. Very friendly staff and great music waits at the end of your canoeing/kayaking trip. We will be back as often as possible!

During the busy summer season I'd call a couple days in advance--especially if you are trying to book for Saturday. If it is Monday -Thursday it is often less busy on the river.
