About us

Paddle On is a local Bismarck / Mandan business renting and selling stand up paddle boards (SUP) and kayaks. We started with a passion for water fun and adventure, usually kayaking, and often with friends, family, pets, and gear.

Our seasonal rental station at Harmon Lake is open for the 2021 season. Hours vary due to weather and generally we are open daily during. Sibley rentals are available on the weekends and by appointment on weekdays.

Who we are

Our business is run by our family (parents plus two daughters) and together, we have over 30 years worth of time spent introducing friends, relatives, and some strangers, to the beauty and nature that North Dakota's waterways have to offer.

We have kayaked and canoed first as individuals, then a couple, then a growing family. We added paddleboards to our collection and have spent time on many rivers and lakes in North Dakota.

We have experienced the serenity and unmatched beauty of many miles of the Missouri River, small rivers, and lakes. With all the water resources available in North Dakota, many of which are within a few minutes' drive, it is something everyone should try!


Why us

We have traveled North Dakota by hiking on foot, riding horseback, paddling, flying, biking, and snowmobiling.  Our business is very familiar with the sites of North Dakota, some less known and others well known, and offers its services in planning floats or weekend water trips.

Many friends and relatives, first timers and novices, have accompanied us on our adventures and at times, a whole new world has been opened for them. We turned this hobby and joy of sharing into a business to attempt to reach even more people, world-wide, and introduce them to or provide rentals for, one of the best experiences they will ever have in North Dakota.
