This was a great experience. My son (age 7) loved every minute we were on the water. Easy to get to, laid back staff who were extremely knowledgeable, and very inexpensive. I felt safe enough to try this alone with my son. We loved it!

We spent the afternoon in Kingston and decided to go canoeing. Jesse (the owner) and the other staff at A Day Away Kayak are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The price of the rentals were fair. The river/lake site is beautiful - with a bridge, a small water fall and some small islands.

This rental business is part of a full boat marina and has been a family business as long as I remember. Jessie, the owner is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable in all aspects of boating. Great low fees and in a great location. I recommend A Day away Kayak rentals to anyone seeking water fun.
