Narrow River Kayaks was established in 1992 by the late Robert Ryder as a seasonal kayak and canoe rental business. Twenty-eight years later, Mr. Ryder’s vision is still intact and still locally owned and operated. Narrow River is one of southern New England’s premier paddle sport destinations, and with its waterfront location at the doorstep of the John H. Chafee National Wildlife Refuge, Narrow River Kayaks is here to help launch you on this truly spectacular and unique waterway by kayak, canoe or stand-up paddle board.
Let our courteous, helpful and knowledgeable staff launch you on your next adventure!
For those seeking a more personalized and educational experience on the water, we offer a variety of guided excursions. This is a great way for a beginner to explore the watershed with the added comfort of an experienced guide to lead the way.
