We've used Tippa Canoe the last 3 years we've come to Broken Bow for our annual "big family" weekend trip. Always a pleasure to rent from the owners. Super nice people, great prices and nice equipment. We just show up - they bus us to our location, put our kayaks in the water and then take them out for us when we get to the end. Looking forward to next year!

My personal experience was horrible, because this is not my type of adventure - that is no fault of the company. They were super nice and the price was good! I’ve never kayaked before, and we were given 1-2 min of instructions before being put on the lake in our tandem kayaks. I would advise you to NOT go on this trip if you expect a peaceful float (which is what I expected). You WILL get wet, you WILL take in water, you WILL crash into other kayaks and rocks, you WILL get stuck, and there is a 60% chance that you’ll flip over in the rapids. A good portion of the trip is shallow rapids with a ton of big rocks. But if you are down for all of these things, then this is the trip for you! It took about 2.5 hours to finish. I would advise wearing a pair of water shoes, to help navigate the lake when you have to get out to get yourself unstuck.

The staff was very friendly, the rental prices were great. Our plan was to rent a canoe with our 6yr old sitting in the middle. I was advised it would be best to do a double kayak. I am glad I took the advice, bc there are a lot of shallow areas and rocks. The only complaint would be was that we arrived 30mins early for a noon float time, but we did not leave til after 12:30. It wouldn't be too bad, but you are waiting outside in the heat to leave. They take u up the river and you can float, paddle down the river on your own time. You just got to make sure not to miss your stop. We finished in about 2.5hrs, docked the kayaks and was able to walk back to our car. So not waiting to be shuttled back to your car was a plus. Overall, I would rent from them again.

We have kayaked down the river several times but this was the best company we have found. You can’t beat their kayak prices and they have wonderful customer service. The kayak ending place lands you right where you parked your car so it’s much more convenient for you to leave at the end so you don’t have to wait for the shuttle.

We enjoyed our trip with Tippa Canoe. They loaded us quickly and got us on the water. We had a large group and rented single kayaks, tandem kayaks, and canoes. The kayaks were great! The canoes didn't work well for this trip. Even with experienced people, the canoes sunk in the rapids while the kayaks made it okay. The canoes sat very low in the water and kept taking on water until they finally sunk. There are also a lot of rocks to negotiate in the beginning. It's easier in kayaks. This trip has some rapids and a small waterfall to make it exciting and then some nice smooth water where you can jump out and swim a while. It's long enough to be fun, but short enough that it can be done in an afternoon. Our group had parents, teens, and kids as young as 8. We all said we'd go again.
