Pathfinder Outfitters features comfortable  sit on top (SOT) kayaks. Our gear is top notch! Our kayaks are comfortable, not confining, easy to enter/exit, safe, and FUN! You can paddle swiftly, lay out in the sun like it’s a raft, roll off into the water for a swim, fish, and photograph wildlife. We have comfortable life jackets designed to fit everyone from small children to XXL adults. Some Kayaks are even rated for up to 600 pounds. 

Why We Use Kayaks

Kayaks vs Canoes

  • Speed

Our goal is to provide the best customer experience possible. We provide the best kayaks for the given trips.

How We Are Different From Other Rentals/Outfitters:

We offer the “Best of Southern Indiana Water Adventures”

  • We are not confined to one river and one location. We ALWAYS have good water available, in spite of localized flood or drought.
  • Therefore we can always put you on the Best Water. Some rivers flood or go dry when others don’t. We constantly monitor water levels to always provide a safe, quality trip.
  • We closely monitor water conditions so you NEVER have to be on a creek/river that requires dragging your boat instead of paddling.


We NEVER haul you in an old school bus full of 50 window lickers.

  • We NEVER put you out with large groups of strangers

Our trips are about adventure in wild places as opposed  just being about the party.

  • Our trips require you to be “on your game” to various degrees. They are a little more challenging than other outfitter’s trips.
  • We know the very best wild places accessible by water and enable you to experience wilderness and wildlife.
  • We provide the very best kayaking gear in the country and shuttle you in a suburban or van.
