GREEN EARTH OUTDOORS offers paddling rentals of canoes and kayaks in the Louisville and Southern Indiana area. We rent watercraft in one of three ways*:

1) Individuals may rent boats and take with them from our shop (car top carrier included in rental if needed) and return afterwards. Rates for rentals picked up and returned to our shop are posted below.  

2) Individuals may also rent through one of our mobile rental events. Mobile rental events are held  on certain Fridays, Saturdays and/or Sundays throughout the summer when water levels and weather are suitable for paddling and are offered at various paddling destinations in the area.  Locations and times are determined by the Wednesday prior to the weekend (once we have a good idea of weather and water levels). Rates for mobile rental events vary by location  and are by reservation only. Upcoming mobile rental events are posted on our Trips page.

3) For groups, we provide rentals for youth organizations and clubs, corporate events, church groups, birthday parties, large family events, etc. Our rental package includes delivery of boats to the launch location and may include shuttle service if required.  Also available for groups are canoe/kayak instructions, lunch packages and team building activities.    

Contact Us for more information or to inquire about our group packages.

When weather and water levels are suitable, we service Blue River, Indian Lake, Lake Celina, Falls of the Ohio, Floyds Fork (between North Beckley and Fisherville), Long Run Lake, Taylorsville Lake, and private waterways with vehicle access.  

All rentals include boats, paddles, and PFD's (personal flotation devices). Other amenities like third seats for canoes, dry boxes (for electronics), dry bags (snacks/change of clothes), dry backpacks (family size), and dry coolers are also available for rent.


*Paddling rental requests must be received AT LEAST 24 HOURS in advance!
