Hillsborough shops offer canoe and kayak rentals

Published June 26, 2009 - St. Petersburg Times
Although Cribbs' business has declined over the years, it's not a reflection of the industry in the area. Just 23 miles down the road, business at the Little Manatee Canoe Outpost continues to increase.

Some weekends in the spring are so busy that all 45 canoes and 20 kayaks get rented, Ruddeforth said. Business slows a little in the summer, but on Saturday the Canoe Outpost had 70 to 80 customers, or about 35 boat rentals. On the same day, Alafia Canoe Rentals did about 30 rentals. But Cribbs said some weekend days she rents out as few as 15 of her 100 canoes and five single-person kayaks.
