This activity will be available on a 1 km stretch of the Riverfront from NID Ghat No.11 at the lower promenade of the Riverfront up to Ambedkar Bridge. The ticket price for a single-seater kayak is ₹600 per hour and for a double-seater kayak, it is ₹1200 per hour. Tickets can be booked on the spot as well as online on https://ahmedabadkayak.com/

The Kayak services were inaugurated in the presence of Mayor Kirit Parmar, Deputy Mayor Smt. Gitaben Patel, and Chairman of Standing Committee Hitesh Barot, as well as other dignitaries

Ahmedabad Kayaks, the operating agency, will provide training and all necessary equipment, including life jackets, rescue boats, and lifeguards onshore and offshore. Participants must be over 12 years old and will need to sign a declaration form acknowledging the instructions and risks involved.
