Our Location

Complete Service

We offer complete rentals of Kayaks, Stand-Up Paddle Boards and Tubes and anything else you need to enjoy your day on the Tar River.



We are located in Bunn, about 30 minutes east of Raleigh. Driving away from Bunn on 98 East, pass Vollmer Farm on your left, then turn left onto Sledge Rd after a half mile.  At that point you'll start seeing our signs.

Best way of locating us.

Use Google Maps or Apple Maps on a smart phone and search "Tar River Life". You should easily find us this way.
