Kayaks and other Watercraft.
*If you are in the Portland area and want to pick up your boat at the store for free, please call us for instructions prior to placing your order.
Kayaks, canoes, and SUPs require special handling and therefore cost a bit more to ship. We strive to minimize this cost as much as possible and bear the brunt of the actual shipping charge. Most inflatables will ship for $29. Most hardshell boats will ship for $99. There are exceptions so please see the shipping charges once the boat has been added to your cart.
Inflatables and some short whitewater boats will ship via UPS Ground. Most other kayaks, canoes, and SUP's will ship via ground freight with the carrier of our choice. We will usually ship the boat the next business day and the typical transit time is 1-5 days. Expedited shipping is not available on any watercraft. We only ship to the lower 48 states and will cancel your order if you attempt to ship it outside of the lower 48.
Unless it is an inflatable boat, you must ship the boat to a commercial addresses. If you don't have a commercial address, then the boat will be shipped to the nearest freight terminal for you to pick up. Except for extreme cases, the terminal is usually located within a short drive. If you require residential delivery, please contact us so we can give you a shipping quote. It usually ranges between $100 and $250.
You are responsible to inspect for shipping damage when you receive it and before the driver leaves. If you fail to do this, the boat will not be covered by the carrier's shipping insurance. If you are picking the boat up at a freight terminal, then you must inspect it at the terminal prior to taking the boat home.
Once your order is placed, a Next Adventure representative will contact you. If you have any questions, feel free to call customer service at 877-838-2816 or email us anytime.
