About Kayak Coeur D'alene

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 twenty three years.

Twenty 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.  They moved to Coeur d’Alene Ave in March of 2018.Unfortunately the covid virus shutdowns led to severe shortages of paddlesport equipment in the United States forcing the closing of their retail shop. They are however committed to paddle sports in the Coeur d’Alene area and continue to operate their rental business on Lake Coeur d’Alene.
