We did the 3hr kayak self tour down the Kalamazoo river. We started at 9am and finished at 11:30 You paddle with the current which makes it VERY easy. The attached picture were taken during our trip. Mike the owner and the crew are very nice and help load , unload and explain in detail the trip and route.

I was meeting up with a couple college roommates and their spouses in Saugatuk. We tried to think of something fun to do as a group and someone suggested kayaking the Kalamazoo River. So we booked a three hour trip. No Gilligan Island jokes. The owner was great. Have us a quick intro to kayaking the river and sent us one out way. He did say that the wind was coming hard out of the north and that we might have to cut it short as the river turned into a big lake near the end. Well he was right. Our river tour became a white-cap covered lake. The owner met us on the river and picked us up and took us back to base. He refunded us to the 2 hour rate. It was a great trip nonetheless. The owner was very personable.

I love that this was a simple small launch into the river that you can either take through downtown Saugatuck and see all the nice houses and big boats, or you can go a more nature route. It was easy to make an appointment. The staff was very nice. The Kayaks were thoroughly cleaned right before our eyes. The price was right. I don't have any complaints and would definitely come back to Running Rivers again!

I just rented a single kayak for two hours and went through downtown Saugatuck and all the way to Lake Michigan. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Very quick service. All the equipment was in great shape and the life jackets weren’t dirty/smelly/mildewy. I’d happily rent from them again on a tour or alone. Their paddle boards looked nice too.

A very nice and leisurely trip down the Kalamazoo River. You don't have to work too hard. We went mid-afternoon and saw a couple of Blue Herons. Would like to find out the best time to see wildlife and flowers blooming. The staff was helpful and nice.
