Kayaking & Paddling in the Cincy Region

Where to kayak, SUP, and canoe to see a different side of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky

The best way to experience Cincy's river culture is to grab a paddle and jump in. Cincy is framed by The Little Miami, Great Miami, and Whitewater Rivers offering plenty of opportunities to jump in and play. Visit river outfitters for guided experiences and access public boat launches, so you can kayak, canoe, and SUP, aka Stand Up Paddleboarding, around Cincy and enjoy a day in the great outdoors. Want a more relaxing pace, check out these local lakes to do some fishing and float the day away. Don’t miss Ohio River Paddlefest, the nation’s largest paddling event held every August.
