Cocoa Kayak’s equipment is in great condition, most less than one year old–staff inspects kayaks, life vests and paddles for safety, cleanliness and performance prior to your trip. Your specific reservation information helps us select the best paddle length, life vest, and kayak for your size and ability.

How It Works Our rental operation is mobile (no shop)–specific meet-up directions are listed on the left with the name of your trip. (normally no address exists)

  1. Meet-up Cocoa Kayak staff at the location your trip finishes, we shuttle you upstream
  2. Staff provide safety and navigation instruction before you’re on the creek
  3. When you finish (where you parked earlier), we’ll be there to help you off the creek    

  ..our system is very efficient, minimizing any wait. 

  • Guided and team building trips will be led by experienced guide(s) who are CPR and First-Aid trained. 
  • We offer six different sizes of kayaks, including tandem, to fit your needs. Our sit-inside kayaks were built for recreational users. Kayak bottoms are fairly wide and flat, offering much “balance forgiveness”. Paddles, life vests, kayak foot pads and cushioned seats are all adjustable. Most kayaks provide exterior storage to stow your personal items for easy access, however, they’re NOT waterproof.† (The Swatara Creek is primarily gentle and no spray skirt is required.) If needed, you may borrow dry boxes and bags from us for your trip.

Food Cocoa Kayaks can provide a $15 boxed lunch from the Brass Rail Deli if order is placed at when reservation is made. If you wish to lunch or dine after your trip we can recommend several great choices along or near the Swatara Creek.   

ALL CUSTOMERS MUST CARRYOUT ALL RECYCLABLES AND TRASH. If there is no trash receptacle at your takeout, we’ll gladly dispose/recycle for you…we must protect the Swatara Watershed, it is nature’s gift for us to preserve.
