Program – Ryan Martin was our speaker today from Tippy River Adventures. Tippy River Adventures is a kayak and canoe livery that opened its doors in August 2021. We offer equipment rental and transportation from the embarkment (put-in) location to disembarkment (pull-out) location. You can rent our equipment or use your own.
We decided to open the business after participating in a podcast discussion about Kosciusko County’s lakes, rivers, streams, and natural resources. During that conversation, we realized how difficult it was to enjoy and explore those areas without having a kayak and canoe livery available, and decided to solve the problem ourselves.
We’ve found that the biggest obstacle to enjoying a paddling excursion is needing to have at least two cars, leaving one at the disembarkment area and the other at the embarkment, then having to haul people and equipment between the two either to begin or at the end of the trip.
Tippy River Adventures solves that problem for you, making it easy for you to enjoy your adventure on the Tippecanoe River!
