COME out and EXPLORE all we have to OFFER, Safely and Responsibly.

We are providing safe, responsible, and sanitized, on-water experiences, during these crazy times we are all experiencing right now. Our full service paddle sport center is located directly on the Great Island Estuary and the CT River Canoe and Kayak Trail, providing open spaces, natural beauty, and open air activity for all to enjoy. This is one of the premiere destinations in the entire Northeast and our fleet of canoes, kayaks, and stand up paddleboards are suited for fishing, open water touring, and recreational family fun. We offer both rentals and sales of Kayaks, SUPs and accessories. Black Hall Outfitters is located directly on the Connecticut River Estuary, Canoe and Kayak trail. The 600 acre, Great Island Wildlife Management area is right in our backyard and one of the country’s top Paddle Sport Destinations. These vast waterways where the Connecticut River meets the Long Island Sound provide an endless range of exploration and fun on the water. Serious enthusiasts can take on the many miles of waterways and tidal flats for a great workout, hit the sound for open water touring, or to just “escape” civilization for a while exploring deep into the many tributaries.

Connecticut’s Premier Paddle-Sports Destination

We are located in Old Lyme, CT on the Black Hall River away from marina boat traffic, and a short paddle away from quiet beaches. We are considered one of the best spots for paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, and outdoor marine recreation in the Northeast.

Families and friends looking to just chill and have some fun can pack a picnic lunch and explore Griswold point, watch an Osprey dive for fish, and see some of the most beautiful scenery that Connecticut has to offer. We are located within a short paddle to some fantastic shoreline beaches and tidal flats that you can only experience with our water access. We have everything your group needs to get you in the perfect Canoe or Kayak for your level of experience and get you out on the water. If standup paddle boarding is something you’re into, or have been eager to try, we have them for rental as well. Bring your enthusiasm, sunscreen, and towel and be ready for a great day! Fisherman can take advantage of our fleet of utility fishing kayaks and canoes and within a short paddle, be in some of the Northeast’s greatest inshore fishery. We offer several models of Kayaks for rental, specifically designed to get you and your fishing gear into some prime water for a fishing adventure of a lifetime – local “secret” knowledge, free of charge! If you have a bigger group, and really want to do something unique, check out our Group outings and excursions. Perfect for family reunions, class outings and graduations, corporate functions, team building or any group looking to experience an exceptional experience on the water. We have several local trips that can get you and your group out exploring areas accessible only by boat. We are conveniently located to many of Connecticut’s shoreline attractions and the casinos. Come on down and experience a great day. We’ve got everything you’ll need to hit the water.
