The staff was totally awesome and were very patient with us while we asked a million questions while deciding which kayaking trip we would like to partake in...The day of the trip the staff were super friendly and super helpful and truly helped make this...

Our trip was on a Sunday morning. We chose the 1.5 mile float as we had little ones(youngest 4 1/2) with us and wasnt sure how they would be on the water. They absolutely loved it. Even disappointed when it was over. Next year we will do the 5 mile float. We packed lunch and drinks and stopped on sandbar... More

We booked the day before we kayaked for 3 of us, two adults and a 13 year old. We weren't really sure of how the system worked and had decided to do the trip of approx 4 miles. We hadnt realised that the time you arrive dictates the trip. We ended up on the 7.8 mile paddle down the Saco.... More

This place does not have the smoothest of operations but it gave us what it promised. Tubes, lifejackets, and a fun river to go tubing in. Could probably be run a little better but you can't complain when the end product is what you were looking for.

We tubed the shortest route, 0.5 miles - where you jump in at the dock and at the end you have to walk back up to the rental place and your car. 10 minute walk. We can't wait to go back and do the 1.5 mile length where they shuttle you up the river and you float down back to... More

My 2 kids and I took kayaks for a half day down the Saco. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The weather was great and the river was awesome. Sandy beaches to stop at and picnic, as well was multiple rope swings kept things interesting.

I called early morning and made a reservation for a double kayak, rushed with breakfast, drove all the way to the place, waited 20 minutes in line - only to be told that they had a "computer glitch" and now have no kayaks left for hire. Imagine the disappointment on the face of my 10 year old daughter. So when... More

Olivia I want to apologize about losing your reservation on July 4th. I have no excuse other than human error and extreme heat on this crazy 4th of July. If you contact the office or email us at sacocanoerental@mail.com I would gladly send you a complimentary double kayak rental including shuttle for your next visit to the area. My apologizes....

On a recent stay in North Conway we spent a half day on the Saco River canoeing. Saco Canoe Rental Company were recommended to us by our B&B, which also got us a very nice discount off our rental. We hadn't kayaked before so they recommended a canoe. The staff are very laid back, but helpful. There is a toilet... More
