For 10 euros a person, we were allowed to take the kayaks out for as long as we wanted. The gentleman gave us a quick lesson and we were off! We paddled across the Daugava and around Kipsala, which is a great way to see the old fishing village. We made sure to go close to dusk so that we... More

Went down to the port to hire a kayak. Lovely chap told us it was 12 Euro for however long we wanted it for, no hassle or time pressure, we were given a map of a suggested good route to take along with a watertight container for our personal stuff. No deposit or anything required, and just pop it back... More

Well organised by a team leader with a team building mission. Material was in adequate shape. Tour through canal and Daugava river took 2,5h. Made a lot of fun, the way besides the canal was well prepared, through the canal plenty of fountaines, guide took pictures, being sent to email adress. To be recommended.

Un plan genial para un par de horas , ida por el tranquilo canal y vuelta por el río Daugava. Si tienes algo de experiencia en kayak es un plan genial . Great plan for a trip in kayak. There are some diferent routes for diferent levels. The instructor was charming! Good information and very helpful with us! Totally recomended!

Nothing but praise for the man running the show (christophs?) a good way to spend a couple of hours in the sun in Riga, though I hear it's even better at night

Our group rented kayaks for an evening trip around the Daugava and through the canals. The boats/life jackets/paddles were in good repair, the staff were friendly and the pre trip briefing was clear and easy to understand. We received maps to help guide our way as we went on our own. I would rent from them again.

An hour ride on the river will be a great time on a nice day, but get ready for a workout! Maybe, I just haven’t been on a paddle boat in a long time, but I was exhausted halfway through this paddle boat ride (I am also a marathon runner). But don’t do what I did. Instead, remember paddle boats... More

It seems that you know everything about the city you have lived in for 10 years, but no..... you can always find something new and cool... I have been in many places and I guess I haven't seen the possibility to see the city from the small boat. If you have adventurous and romantic heart, you have to try this...... More
