Fuzzy Guppies offers kayak rentals seven days a week from May through September. Rentals are also available during the rest of the year upon satisfactory fulfillment of Fuzzy Guppies safety requirements.

Our shop is located directly on the Seneca River, which gives its passengers immediate access to hours/days worth of paddling. However, if it is lake kayaking that interests you, Fuzzy Guppies offers a drop off service at the mouth of Seneca River so you can cruise the lake at your leisure, and then paddle up stream back to our dock.

Delivery is not out of the question! Fuzzy Guppies can transport your rentals to you for a fee; please contact us for a quote.
