Shipping Policy

Colorado Kayak Supply Online (CKSO) strives to ship all orders within 1 business day of submission. We attempt to stock all the sizes and color options we offer, however, due to a variety of factors, it is possible that we may not have the specific make and model in the specific color you selected. If this occurs, a customer service representative will contact you with color choices and estimated availability of the make, model, and color you requested.

Estimate Shipping

Please use the Estimate Shipping option during checkout to calculate accurate shipping cost.

If a shipping option is not available when you check out, it is because we are unable to ship the items in your cart at your desired rate.

In unique situations, we reserve the right to request additional shipping charges to match the true cost of kayak shipping. If this happens, we will contact you before shipping the kayak and work with you to find the most cost effective and efficient shipping solution possible. This is very rare and is only likely for shipping to remote areas.

You also have the option to pick up kayaks at our Denver warehouse. Please call or email our Customer Service team to schedule. If you want to change your shipping method after you purchase, email us and we can most likely accommodate this.

Updated June 2021: Please note that due to understaffed freight companies, whitewater kayaks are taking up to 3 weeks to ship. On average, kayaks shipping outside CO make it in 1-2 weeks (quicker in-state shipments) but occasionally delays beyond our control may happen!

Important Note For Kayak Orders:

Once the freight carrier is getting ready to deliver your kayak, they will call within 24 hours of delivery to let you know when your kayak is arriving. Once the boat is unloaded from the truck, please inspect the boat for any damages before you sign the delivery receipt.

Inspection at the time of delivery is essential – once you sign for the boat you are accepting the condition the boat is in and we are unable to file a claim with the carrier for any damages that occurred during delivery. If there is any damage do not sign and call us immediately. We do not ship boats with any damage unless it is specifically marked as 'blem' at the time of purchase.

When you are inspecting the boat please be respectful of the driver's time as they are often on a tight schedule.
