You can Kayak downtown or in a nice little park. They offer a variety of boats and the gear all seemed in decent shape. We rented a Canoe and got to bring our dog along with no hassle.

We went kayaking for my grandson's 5th birthday and it was so much fun. (one kayak was free due to his birthday). The staff was very nice and they explained everything before we went out. It was a great way to spend an hour, and the time flew by. It was my first time to go and we will definitely... More

My boyfriend and I decided to do something different and try kayaking. The place is very easy to find and the instructor was very informative with the beginner's lesson. It took me a little time to get the hang of it but after a few tries it was very easy. Kayaking is a work out if you haven't done it... More

My wife and I visited Pittsburgh on a Saturday, 9/4, and the first thing we did after checking into our hotel was visit Kayak Pittsburgh. My wife was very excited to do this so it was our first stop. Below is a summary of our experience with Kayak Pittsburgh. Arrival: They have two locations, we visited the North Shore location... More

Highly recommend this adventure for young and old, experienced or novice. Reasonably priced. Vet get $5.00 discount and on your birthday it is free for 1st hour. Ideal way to see Pittsburgh from its waters. No parking on site but parking available within walking distance. Can rent single or tandem kayak ranging from $18 to $22. Excellent experience for couples.

I have been doing Kayak Pittsburgh for many years now and it is still fun. The 3 convenient locations make it easy for anyone in the surrounding suburbs of the city to enjoy kayaking. Their staff are nice and efficient at their jobs. The North Park location is the best if you are looking for a quiet, experience. Overall, each... More

Go to the Boathouse at North Park for a great outdoor experience! We rented kayaks, a single and tandem. You can also rent standing paddle boards, canoes, paddleboats and a rowboat. Equipment is in great condition, staff are friendly and helpful. They give you instructions, so NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED. North Park Lake is beautiful. Look for Henry, their resident heron... More

A friend fulfilled her promise to take my son kayaking on North Park Lake with Kayak Pittsburgh, and registered us for the North Park Family Beginner Paddle session. While my son had kayaked with them before on the Pittsburgh rivers during a Summer camp, it was my and my friend's first time. While my friend and I were a little... More

Kayaking along the Allegheny river was so much fun, especially with friends. It's one of the activities one must do in Pittsburgh when the weather is cooperative. It's actually a good way to enjoy the scenery Pittsburgh offers. For 16$/hour, it's a good way to get in some exercise and be active alongside friends or family. The kayaks themselves are... More
