When renting from Baldwin Canoe Rental all equipment is provided (paddles, pfd cushions, or life jackets). State law requires that each person must have either a cushion or life jacket in the watercraft. Baldwin Canoe Rental recommends that all customers wear a life jacket at all times. It is our policy that all children 10 and under are required to wear a life jacket. If you wish to bring your own life vest, no problem.
