Outdoor Adventure Recreational Services (OARS) - Hancock, NY
OARS is your canoe, kayak or river tube rental headquarters. We rent for the East Branch, West Branch or Mainstem of the Delaware river, as well as the Cannonsville Reservoir for exceptional flatwater paddling. We offer group rates, over night trips, and the absolute best rates and services on the Upper Delaware!
Areas of Service and Expertise
We offer canoe and kayak rentals, river guide services, pickup and drop off, and overnight camping adventures. Most trips are two hours, give or take. Also full-day rentals are available for the adventurous or for people wanting to fish. We know what sections of the river to recommend you paddle on, depending on your needs.
Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes
Owned by Bill Gross, I am very familiar with the river and surrounding areas.
Types of Experiences and Trips Provided
Our services are perfect for first time paddlers, experienced paddlers, and those seeking short or long trips, flatwater, or light river rapids. You may see all sorts of wildlife, including beaver, heron, eagle, deer or maybe even a black bear, as well as several species of duck, geese, and fish. There is also plenty of endemic plant life. If you want a group outing, we can accommodate you. If you want a guide, we can do that, too! We aim to please!
