River Equipment Rentals
Inflatable Kayaks, Stand-Up Paddle Boards, Rafts, & Tubes
River Equipment Rentals In Durango, CO
Mild to Wild offers a variety of equipment rentals if you prefer to go on our own. Caution: it is a lot of work finding the best place to put in, take out, run your own shuttle, and pump up the inflatables. Also, frequently, those without experience have issues with the equipment malfunction due to improper inflating. If you are up for this challenge (and prefer not to have us do all the work while you sit back and relax), here are our most popular rental options. Boat rentals include a personal flotation device (PFD) and paddle.
