Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard Rentals

Hamburg Cove is one of the top destinations for renting a kayak and stand up paddleboard in Connecticut.  Our kayak rentals on the Connecticut River will give you an amazing day of paddling opportunities in Hamburg Cove which is were the Eight Mile River meets the Connecticut River.

Pack a picnic lunch, grab some of our boats, and paddle around pristine and gorgeous Hamburg Cove. What better way is there to spend time with family and friends than paddling around in one of the top destinations for boating in the Northeast?

Hamburg Cove is part of the Eight Mile River which flows from Colechester southward eight miles downstream through the Cove and into the Connecticut River.  It is made up of two coves, the Inner Cove where Cove Landing is located, and the Outer Cove which is one of the most charming and protected anchorages in all of New England.

Reservations are not necessary but highly recommended for weekends, holidays, and large groups. Customers with reservations will take priority over those without.
