Founded in 2001, Kayak Coeur d'Alene, LLC is owned and operated by Chip and Ginger Dalvini. Lifetime outdoor enthusiasts, they have been living and paddling in the Coeur d'Alene area for the last fifteeen years. Thirteen years ago they decided to share this experience with others and start a kayak business in Coeur d'Alene. The business started out in 2001 as an outfitting company doing guided tours on Lake Coeur d'Alene. In May of 2004 they opened the Kayak Coeur d'Alene retail kayak shop on Locust Avenue. In 2008 the touring part of the business was closed to concentrate on sales, rentals and lessons. They have had a great time so far and look forward to serving the Inland North West paddling community for years to come.
