We are unable to accommodate kayaks for the Explorer program at this time. We expect to resume accepting kayaks when the entire route reopens.
Paddle the river and ride the rails! Ride the train one direction and kayak back to your starting point or vice versa.
Single Kayak: $10
Double Kayak: $15
CANOES AND STAND-UP PADDLE BOARDS ARE NOT ACCEPTED ON THE TRAIN
Are you bringing a group of five or more aboard the train? We look forward to welcoming you aboard! We kindly ask you email us ahead of your trip at so that our Explorer staff will be prepared to welcome you on for your trip!
Cash is preferred; exact change is appreciated. The train can be flagged down at any of our boarding stations by waving both arms over your head. The train will always leave on time from the stations, so please arrive to the station 10 minutes prior to departure time.
