Welcome to Quickwater Canoe & Kayak. We’re a t-shirt and shorts kind of business with a flare for making customer experiences awesome and understanding our customers needs. We are a family owned paddle sport retail and rental center located on the Merrimack River in Concord, NH. We run 15 miles of the best river in New Hampshire offering 5, 10 or 15 mile trips with shuttle services in a very rural setting with many scenic beaches, great fishing and the wilderness experience of day tripping or overnight beach camping.

“Amazing day today on the river thanks to Quickwater! They are helpful, accomodating, and excellent customer service professionals! I highly recommend them if you are in the area and want a relaxing day on the water! A++……….”

Some of you may remember us as Hannah’s Paddles which we operated until 2005. Quickwater was founded in 2012 on the idea of providing the best water sport service and experience possible. Our business philosophy is simple…..we sell experiences, not products. The result of every item we sell is your experience on the water. We put our customers needs first and will never compromise those needs for profit. We believe trust and honesty tailored with quality equipment is the foundation of a reputable business. That’s our value proposition.

We hope to see you in our shop or on the water.
