The Riva Row Boat House opened as the first public boat rental location in The Woodlands, TX, in 2009 as part of the rapidly-developing Woodlands Waterway in The Woodlands Town Center. It is centrally located within walking distance from Town Green Park, Market Street, and The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. This boat house sits on the lower waterway, and is fully accessible to Lake Woodlands by watercraft. Our family-friendly rental options include:

  • Kayaks (Standard & Pedal)
  • Stand-Up Paddleboards
  • Water Bikes
  • Swan Pedal Boats

Rental options currently include:

  • Kayaks

Swans at the Mall

Our pop-up kiosk in the Mall Ring Turning Basin is just north of the intersection of Mall Ring Road and Woodloch Forest Drive.  This location is conveniently tucked between several popular restaurants at the mall making it ideal for a swan ride while waiting for a table.  Swan pedal boats can be reserved for thirty minutes or one hour.

Northshore Storage Facility

Looking for a way to get your kayak or stand-up paddle board out on the water without the pain and hassle of having to store and transport? The Northshore Storage Facility (inside the Woodforest Bank Boat House) is a small piece of lake-front property that offers quick and easy access to Lake Woodlands.

Riva Row Boat House
Great experience!

The service was great and the kayaking route has a lot of amazing views of the architecture, fountains, and sculptures of the Woodlands. It's a great way to spend a weekend actively, and if you're with a partner, they have two-person boats too!

Riva Row Boat House
A great option

A great option to do something outdoors. Husband and I rented the tandem pedal kayak. We had also done the Swan pedal board before. That was fun too. I was afraid we needed some level of experience with the kayaks, but it really wasn't that hard. Next time we will try the kayaks without the pedals.
