The Gift of Kayaking
Why not knock Fathers Day out of the park and get dad a gift that will blow him away? A kayak represents freedom and relaxation for any man that enjoys the outdoors – making it the perfect gift.
Pack & Paddle is uniquely positioned to make your kayak gifting a great experience for Dad. If you are not sure of a model, choose a gift card. We will take your Dad for a demo of several boats, then zero in on the perfect one. After he owns the boat, he can participate in our trips, events and clubs to make enjoying the paddlers paradise we live in a life long avocation.
