This outfit is focused on its tubing and rafting business. You spend a lot of time sitting around waiting to be taken to or picked up from the river. If there is another place that allows you to rent a kayak - look into it.

Yes. No glass. There are signs about no alcohol but they do not enforce it. Some people tie a small cooler to their tube, or you can rent a cooler float. Walmart sells them for about $5. Hope that helps!
