Free Unlimited Paddling Routes Published

Paddlers and kayak and canoe professionals may have their business name and address listed on Route pages free of charge simply by publishing a previously unlisted paddling route by completing our route submission form. There is no limit to how many free Paddling Route listings you may have.

Our intent is to let both paddlers as well as paddling related businesses "Homestead" their paddling route pages for as long as we remain on the web. Just be the first paddler or paddling business to submit a new, specific paddling route. So submit the routes in your area now before someone else does.


Free Reciprocal Link to Your Non-Profit Paddling or Environmental Web Site

Non-profit paddling clubs or other non-profit paddling related organizations may be listed and linked on our Directory page free of charge with only a reciprocal link to KayakGuide on a prominent location on your home page. Just place the following graphic linked to and email us to let us know when you've placed the link.

Only may determine what paddling routes are published and how listings appear.

Making Your Ad Campaigns More Effective on

Short-term main page ads can be very effective for high profile events.

If your market is national, the most effective banner placement is a Long-term ad on one of our main pages or on our Directory page by your country or geographic area section. Such advertising is well-suited to paddling related products such as boats, paddles, or accessories not specific to a climate or geography.

If you are marketing a major national or international event, consult us about ads that can appear across our site for a fixed period of time.

If your market is regional, the most effective banner placement is on one of our main pages or on the Directory page by the states or provinces you service. Alternatively, you may also choose to buy a number of individual Paddling Route page ads spanning your target region. Regional advertising is best suited for boats or equipment suitable for a specific climate, or water type (e.g. flat water, white water, play boats, sea kayaks, fly fishing, dry suits, etc.)

If your market is primarily local, the most effective banner placement is on each of the Paddling Route pages in your area. This is the most effective placement for local businesses such as canoe or kayaks rentals, kayak guides, hotels, motels, campgrounds, restaurants, paddling stores, etc. Note that some localities have more than one paddling route listed, so you may want to advertise on a number of paddling routes in your market area. is a part of Closewaters LLC
