There are four routes in Minneapolis and one route in St. Paul, and it's recommended that people have previous kayak experience for the river routes.

Insider Info

Each route has a specific rental window. Longer routes have a morning and afternoon rental window.

North Mississippi to Boom Island is the most popular. This route begins on a more forested stretch of the river, passes through an industrial section, and ends with iconic views of downtown Minneapolis. Nice Ride has stations at both the start and end, which can be used to make this route a loop.

Most routes are $25 for a 3 hour rental, which includes a kayak, life jacket, and paddle.

Fun Facts

Paddle Share began in 2016 and is a partnership between many different organizations.

Paddle Share's idea of kayak-sharing and self-serve rentals is the first of its kind in the country.

Once you make a reservation, in order to access the kayak, you’re given a code. This code is entered into padlock on the door of a locker, which opens to reveal all the equipment you need to be safe on the river.
