Whether you want to celebrate, have fun on the water, or spend a relaxing afternoon on a river, there’s no place like our little desert oasis. We also rent kayaks and paddle boards for $20/h or $50/day!

Jet Skiing in Parker Arizona.

Jet Ski or Water Ski

If taking it easy on the water isn’t your thing, rent a jet ski from Parker Watercraft Rentals. Go up and down the river with speed and get your adrenaline pumping. Ride alone or with your friends, it is fun regardless of how many people are also doing it.

Drink on the River

There’s no better way to cool off than to grab a cold drink. Visit one of the floating bars like Foxes Floating Bar. The best part is you can arrive by the water. Grab a bite to eat and a cold one to fuel you for more fun and excitement!

Please drink responsibly and do not drive under the influence.
