Seneca Lake, and Schuyler County's other bodies of water, canal, and streams, water has always been a key component of the region's identity, with several excellent businesses in Schuyler County providing canoe, kayak, stand up paddle board, and boat rentals. Some of these companies are also able to offer guided tours, enabling a knowledgeable professional to show you around our beautiful waterways, providing in-depth details about all the flora and fauna you will see. And if you're looking to purchase a kayak, or other watercraft, many of these businesses can either sell you a suitable product, or at the very least can assist you in making your purchasing decision- wherever it may be- to help make sure that you obtain the right craft for you. Larger groups such as Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, youth groups, company outings, and others are all encouraged to contact our many excellent businesses for group rentals.
