Topwater Kayaks Rents Kayaks and Canoes at Fort Desoto Park
If you are looking for information on renting a kayak at Fort Desoto Park, you would probably like to see some photos of the various kayaks
they have available. I like a kayak that is relatively stable, easy to get in and out of, is easy to keep going in a straight line, and moves
with reasonable speed. All of the kayaks here fit that description. They have single and tandem kayaks, sit-ins and sit-on-tops, as well as
canoes. They even have some kayaks with clear windows in the bottom so you can see under water, but this really isn't needed here. The water is
not crystal clear, so in the deeper water you won't see anything, and in the shallow water all you have to do is look over the side of the boat
and you can see everything underwater anyway. Canoes are also available to rent. O.K., here are some photos of the boats:
Above: the white kayaks have the clear window in the bottom for underwater viewing.
