River Queen Voyages is Nashville's original & premier downtown paddling rental company on the Cumberland River! Voted "Best View of the City" by the Nashville Scene! We offer two routes: (1) Beginner 3-mile kayak route from Shelby Park to downtown Riverfront Park. Plan about an hour on water, 2 hours total, depending on current. (2) Intermediate 5-mile kayak route from near Opryland to Shelby Park. Plan 2 hours on water, 3 hours total, depending on current. We also have a few canoes and SUPs in our fleet. Other routes and special group rates available upon request! We love to put people on the water <3

Lots of fun! I wasn’t sure what I could expect being a wimpy 58 year old woman. But I could have gone at least 3 or 4 times the 3 mile length. The guides were very hospitable and helpful.

The one hour downtown float was really cool - a really fun, unique way to see the city. The shuttle drivers were friendly and rental equipment was solid. A little pricey for an hour rental ($30) - but otherwise no complaints!

Love this company! Easy to book online with their website, and they’re all really nice. I’ve taken friends and work colleagues out on the Cumberland thru River Queen Voyages. It’s a slow, quiet ride and not a super hard or long paddle, which makes it...More
