Adventure isn’t late-night planning, busy grocery store shopping and a Sunday spent drying out soggy gear. We believe it can be simpler than that. We believe it’s as easy as one click and a relaxing drive to a National Park. Whynot Adventure is a team of young entrepreneurs, vagabonds, artists and above all, adventurers. We work hard so your adventure is well outfitted and as simple as paddling your canoe away from our dock. We offer: -Complete Outfitting Packages -Guided Multi-Day Canoe Trips -Guided Quickie Adventures -Canoe, Kayak, Bicycle Rentals -Camping Equipment Rentals -Equipment Sales

I had a great experience with Whynot adventures. The rental process was easy (online), the canoe was high quality, and the customer service was friendly. The price was a little more than expected (100$ for 48hrs) but worth it.

We rented a tent, sleeping pads and backpacks. It was about $1000 worth of gear and we paid $100 for two nights - a great way to go as we were unsure if we would enjoy backcountry camping at Keji. The tent was awesome -...More

Great service, easy reservation process and check in check out. Friendly people which is a huge plus- despite the fact I'm sure they have to deal with lots of angry people each day. Will be back!

The people who worked there were friendly knowledgable and helpful. The only downside is the cost. A little higher than I would have thought a canoe rental should be. But overall very enjoyable.

The service and equipment was great. However, we did not know there was an easier method to portage our canoe other than to carry it. We later learned we could have rented wheels to help with portaging from the rental booth. The woman working the...More

We arrived before lunchtime on a day when the thunderstorms were brewing and the likelihood of us paddling out to our backcountry camping spot was looking dubious at best (full load and a 7 year old on board). The Whynot team were great at keeping...More

The check-in process was fine and the staff was friendly. I rented a standard kayak and wasn't overly thrilled to learn that a $40/ day rental was missing the foot pegs needed to correctly brace yourself in the kayak. I asked about this but was...More

Whynot Adventure kept us informed of the wind conditions and were upfront about keeping us safe as we were canoeing across the lake to Campsite 9. With thunder in the skies, we decided to wait until morning. The staff were most helpful and very friendly....More
