LA River Kayaks provides kayaks for those wanting to explore the Los Angeles River near downtown in the Elysian Valley. We offer two different kinds of trips:
- Our Standard Trip
- Our Advanced Trip
Standard: The standard trip consists of a 1.1-miles that will take 45 minutes – 1 hour to complete.
Experienced: The experienced trip consists of a 2.5-miles that will take 2 hours to complete.
Both trips are considered to be a workout so be be prepared for that – you have to be in good shape and able to get in and out of a kayak without difficulty. We provide life jackets, helmets and paddles. You should wear closed-toe shoes and clothes that can get wet. If you are bringing a camera, phone or other valuables make sure you have a waterproof bag.
There are trip times throughout the day on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer. Please let us know via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) the time you want to go or go to our Eventbrite page to reserve:

You kayak at your own risk. Print out the waiver and liability form, sign and bring with you.
A 24-hour advanced notice is required for refunds.

Is there any way to hire a professional to take a group or several people on different kayaks? We have game family members who’d love the trip, but aren’t efficient enough to kayak on their own?

A group of us are interested in kayaking next weekend : July 26 or 27th. Are you guys renting in lieu of the oil spill?
Yes the river is open and cleared for take off as of this past Monday.
