Kayaking the Los Angeles River is the perfect summer activity to do with some friends, family members, colleagues, a partner, or solo.

About this event

Since we started LA River Kayaks in 2007, we have helped over 8,000 people experience the beauty and excitement of the Los Angeles River. Whether you are a beginner or expert kayaker, we got you covered. Kayaks, paddles, vests, helmets, water protector for your phone, to one on one instructions we have it all. We rent kayaks to those over 18 and for those who can swim 10 and up with a parent or guardian.

So what's the trip like?

We offer two trips:

  1. Standard trip
  2. Experienced trip

Standard: The standard trip consists of a 1.1-miles that will take 45 minutes - 1 hour to complete.

Experienced: The experienced trip consists of a 2.5-miles that will take 2 hours to complete.

How does it work?

First: Book a time you want to kayak

Second: Show up at your designated time slot fill out some waivers, grab a helmet, vest and paddle to your liking.

Third: Once you have all your equipment we will walk you down near the entrance point at 2900 Clearwater Street to which you will be greeted by a staff member at Los Angeles River Kayaks. From there you will be given a brief demonstration on how to paddle, some history of the river, and then some assistance with helping you into your kayak.

* Note a staff member will always be there throughout your journey to ensure safety and maximum fun

Fourth: After you go through some small but challenging rapids you will enter what we call a "chill point". To which you are free to paddle around and soak in the sounds of birds chirping and water flowing.

Fifth: You will then go through another set of rapids which are a little more challenging than the last.

Finally: Towards the end of your trip which at that point will be a little over a mile downstream we will wave you down pick up your kayaks, vests, and helmets.

If you have any questions about the trip, what you need to bring with you, or if you just want to chat give us a ring or text at 213-952-9723 or you can send us an email at

Can't wait to see you on the river
