Please arrive 15 minutes before your reservation. This will allow enough time to get a board or kayak, paddle, and personal flotation device so you can maximize your time on the water. If you are late to your reservation, you will forfeit that time on the water.

  • Reservations are encouraged to guarantee we have a board or kayak for you on a specific date and time. Walk-ups are accommodated based on availability.
  • Dogs are permitted on stand-up paddle boards, we call them "woof boards", but supplies are limited. Please contact us if you would like to request one.

  • Staff members are happy to demonstrate paddling basics, but if additional instruction is required please book a private lesson ($55 each).
  • Staying hydrated is very important while being active on the water, so free drinking water is provided in the Pro Shop. Please bring a reusable water bottle to reduce the impact of single-use plastics and receive and additional punch on your customer loyalty punch card (excluding other promotional offers). If you don't have a bottle, we have them for purchase in the Pro Shop. Thank you for helping us foster a more eco-friendly Nashville!
