The Capital of Kayaking

There’s something about being so close to the water that just brings on the calm. Fresh air, mountain lakes, and nothing but the sound of the birds and your paddle… it’s no wonder why Redding is so ‘weirdly obsessed’ with kayaking that Time declared it the ‘unofficial capital’ of this popular paddle sport! Bring your own or rent one of ours, but don’t miss your opportunity to experience our waters for yourself. At Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, the rangers lead kayak tours, sometimes by moonlight, and Shasta Lake has more inlets to paddle around than most people can get to in an entire summer. Put in on the Sacramento River and catch some trout while you’re there, or just cruise around Kutras Pond with your friends. No matter how you like to kayak, Redding can make sure you keep coming back for more!

Check out the map below to see some of the places you can launch your kayak in Redding, or scroll down and find more information on kayak rentals, launch sites, guides, and more!
