Rice Creek Kayaking

Welcome to Rice Creek Kayaking, a division of Twin Cities Kayaking. We deliver and pick up recreational kayaks for trips along the Rice Creek Water Trail

Upper Rice Creek offers a wildlife-filled kayaking adventure that any skill level can navigate. We deliver kayaks to Rice Creek every Sunday for our Sunday Family Special! This is a self-guided trip on the upper section, starting in Circle Pines and ending in Shoreview. This trip is a relaxing 2.5 - 3 hours and includes: kayak, paddle and life vest. The cost is just $59 per person*, or $49 per person on Sunday if you have 4 or more people. 

Note: Due to the drought, Rice Creek is too low to paddle any more in 2023. We have moved family day to our Mississippi for our self-guided See the City from the Mississippi trip! https://www.twincitieskayaking.com/book-a-trip/mississippi-minneapolis/see-the-city-from-the-mississippi

We deliver and pick up the kayaks for you. You only need to manage your personal transportation to the launch point and back. It is recommended that you arrange to have a car at each end, use a ride share option like Uber, or park your bike at the end and drive to the launching point. Just a 20-30 minute bike ride on the Rice Creek Regional Trail.

Groups of 4 or more can book Rice Creek trips 7 days a week, as our schedule allows. We sometimes book guided trips on lower Rice Creek for advanced kayakers only, as conditions allow.  All reservations must be made in advance. To make a reservation for Rice Creek or for more information, please email booking@twincitieskayaking.com.
