The What + The Where


Float Paddle Center is the first kayak livery you’ll find as you head Up North on I-75 – the Saginaw River’s only rental outfitter.  Our Crescent Splashback kayaks and SUP+ paddleboards are surprisingly easy use even for beginners.

We launch on the west side of the Saginaw River, away from the commercial shipping channel, just a few steps from our shop on the grassy water’s edge in a City Park. The park doesn’t include a kayak launch yet but we are in discussion with the City to add one very soon!  Check out our About Page for pics and more details about what our area has to offer.
