With a 24-hour kayak or canoe rental, adventurers can explore local water holes, such as Randleman Reservoir, Lake Brandt, High Point City Lake, and Salem Lake, on their own. Glide past verdant foliage, through glittering reflections of aged bridges, and into largemouth bass’ large mouths while your watercraft slices through waves faster than a machete master defending himself against rogue Jell-O. Get:Outdoors’ top-notch equipment makes it easy for both cub canoeists and professional paddlers to achieve their smooth, blue, shimmering dreams; recreational kayaks are available from Wilderness Systems and Native Watercraft, and colorful canoes are manufactured by Mad River, the same company that designed the Santa Maria. The rental fee includes paddles and life jackets, as well as straps and foam blocks to keep boats’ keels from scratching your vehicle’s paint.
