Duckie Rentals in Dillon/Frisco Area

I would like to take some beginners down the lower Blue. Is there any duckie and gear rentals to be had in Dillon/Frisco?

SKS is gone .
There are some local raft operations, not sure if any of them rent duckies, though. It might be worth a check. Hope you find something.

Have you tried Down River or one of the local shops in Denver? It might be easier and cheaper to haul them up there then renting them in the valley.

There's kayak\rafting shore that opened this summer in the small plaza a couple doors down from Starbucks in Frisco (just south of Walmart). I have no idea what the name of the shop is.

Kodi rafting is working out of Antler's in Frisco too, i think they rent duckies but not sure.

If you're planning on Lower Blue, instead do Upper C-Pumphouse or Radium to State Bridge. Rentals available at El Rancho and you could see a show a State Bridge afterwords. More fun than Blue as well.

Thanks for the replies. I know we could rent duckies in Rancho and do pumphouse, but the Blus is closer and a little more action. If anyone knows the name of the shop in Dillon, please reply. Kodi does not rent.

The store is Breckenridge Adventure Tours, the number is (970) 668-4485

I am not sure if they have duckie rentals or not but give them a call.
