Money well spent floating down the Vermont river, Battenkill, in a kayak or lazy tube allowing Big Big
on the Battenkill to do all the work so you just float and relax. 


Friends getting ready to start their float.

 Big Big on the Battenkill Kayaking & Tubing

   Summer past time 

Drive to 5827 VT Route 313, Arlington, VT       THERE IS NO BUSINESS SIGN

When you arrive at the property you will drive the long driveway until you hit the grass drive on the grass passing my barn, see the single green tube to the left  and down the mowed grass pathway. Park there on the right tight against the next car. If no one is there they will be there we are shuttling people up river.

CALL AHEAD Hard to reach the same day but you can try

Calling in advance insures you are on the calendar and for the date and time you hope to go out. So call even up to the night before and if we don't answer just leave name, phone, number in group, equipment you want to rent, date and time, and I will call you back in the evening. Can text me at 518-479-9042 but no guarantee. If you have left me a message for a future date do not text me please.

What to bring:

Come prepared in what your wearing down the river. There are NO BATHROOMS. BRING TRASH BAG.


Water shoes of some sort other than flip flops are highly recommended. If you would like to stop in the river or need to stand up and walk in the river it is almost impossible to do so barefoot. As you may have read earlier, I highly recommend an old sneaker, sandal, or a water shoe of some time for your trip. Most importantly parents because should you need to move you need footwear. Should you want to walk and enjoy and stop along the way, barefoot is very difficult! Rocky bottom throughout the river. Flip Flops are a "flop" on the water as your foot goes up and the flop stays down. We sell water shoes for $15


Regular shorts and shirts are just as good as the bikini just what's comfortable for you.


If you would like to pack drinks, snacks, lunch etc. we do have floating devices to make your coolers float. They can hold a 

large Coleman size cooler that sits in the center and floats behind you. 


Please visit the tab "Waiver" print and sign or you can email to save time and a tree. This saves a lot of time especially with a group of people.


Bring your stress if you have any as this float is so peaceful you can leave it on the river and feel cleansed when you exit!

Items on the river

What you don't want lost or wet DO NOT bring on the river. If you would like to leave your car keys with us we gladly lock them in our vehicle so they are safe and dry upon your return. We have to collect our equipment from you so we are there all day for your return. Don't use styrofoam coolers and don't bring glass.
