Firefly one man inflatable kayaks

These are the best little recreational inflatable kayaks we have found.  Light even for a twelve year old to carry, easy to maneuver, and not tippy, they perform extremely well on the float section of the National Monument.  Some clients have even taken them on the Racecourse and reported successful runs, even though they are not self bailing.  These boats are a steal at $260.00 new and we may periodically have some used ones in stock for sale-price to be negotiated.  

These boats are also available for "buy back" --run the cost of the boat on your credit card, return it at the end of the day, and we will reimburse you the cost of the boat minus a daily use fee of $30.00. Paddles and lifejackes incur an extra rental fee.

River Run and River Rat tubes are NOW IN STOCK at the Pilar Yacht Club to kick off the river season!


River Run tubes are our sturdiest most rugged tube.  The feature a backrest, carrying handles, tow rope, and cup holders.  Priced at 32.99 they are ready to go for a long day on the river.


River Rats are a quality tube best suited for floating the Orilla Verde section of the Rio Grande.  Affordable at 22.99 per tube they also feature a handy tow rope.  Priced at 22.99.
