Third Coast Paddling: Paw Paw River Kayak and Paddleboard Rentals

601 Graham Ave, Benton Harbor, 49022 (directions)

269-468-9399

Experience what most visitors (and locals) never get to see as you lazily paddle down the mellow, winding Paw Paw River. The paddle offers a serene, slow-moving kayak or stand-up paddleboard (SUP) unguided tour on an unspoiled river with and an abundance of nature and wildlife. 

How does it work?

It’s easy! Third Coast paddling's kayak and paddleboard rentals are available in two locations:

  1. At the Graham Ave. boat access parking lot of the Paw Paw River, just down the street from the Harbor Shores club house and next to Renaissance Athletic Club.
  2. At Jean Klock Beach, one mile north of St. Joseph – located in the concession building.

All equipment is available on site and reservations are not necessary or accepted - show up any time you want and be on your way! We also can handle bigger groups of up to 70 with advance registration - perfect for reunions, parties, or corporate events.

For more information and current hours, call the Third Coast Paddling retail store at 269-468-9399. 


What should I bring?

Dress for the weather; come prepared to get a little wet from the drip of your paddle and be out in the sun. Lightweight  synthetic clothing is best. Sunglasses, sunblock and a hat. You can bring cameras, but they do have the possibility of getting wet, so bring a waterproof bag. No alcohol allowed!

What’s the cost?

  • $20 / Hour - Single Kayak or Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP)
  • $25 / Hour – Double Kayak

Prices include the kayak (single or tandem) or SUP, paddle and life vest!
