Get on the Water 

The pleasure and power of paddling your way around the lake

click to enlarge cdapages1-1.jpg

There are so many ways to experience the lake: hanging out at the beach, enjoying Coeur d’Alene’s many waterfront restaurants, taking a cruise. For a truly unique experience, consider paddling a kayak or stand-up paddleboard, better known as a SUP. The availability of equipment rentals, classes and guided tours make it easy to get started.

Pick up your kayak or SUP, including paddle and whistle, at KAYAK COEUR D’ALENE or take advantage of complementary delivery to a convenient pick-up spot along the North Idaho College campus. Safety and basic operations classes are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays evenings through August. Visit kayakcoeurdalene.com, 208-676-1533.

FLOATERS CDA offers kayaks and SUPS for half and full-day rental in both Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint, with discounts for multi-day rental and delivery options available. Visit floaterscda.com, 208-297-2736.

COEUR D’ALENE ADVENTURES also offers complimentary delivery to the north shore dock with single and double-seated kayaks and SUPs for a half or full-day rental, as well as classes on safety and basic operations. Visit cdaadventures.com, 208-918-2082.

ROW ADVENTURE CENTER has nearly 40 years guiding outdoor adventures throughout Coeur d’Alene and even worldwide. Their COEUR D’ALENE KAYAKING group offers guided trips of up to 10 people, including for accompanied children as young as 5 (tandem paddling with an adult is required). Spend the day enjoying views you just can’t get any other way while you learn about the history of the area and its inhabitants. Remember to ask about their sunset paddling trip and convenient lodging options. Visit rowadventures.com, 208-770-2517.

And if your idea of a good time on the lake involves horsepower engines over human-powered paddling, check out JUST ADD WATER SPORTS, who will meet you on the dock and help you choose the best jet boat, water ski and pontoon boat for your needs. Visit cdajaws.com, 208-765-8333.
