OGDENSBURG — Hosmer’s Marina is expanding this summer to include an outdoor patio along the Oswegatchie River and kayak and canoe rentals.

This will make the marina the only kayak and canoe rental business in Ogdensburg, owner William D. Hosmer said.

This summer, he will have two kayaks and one canoe available for rent.

“If we’re successful, we’ll add more,” he said.

People are welcome to kayak or canoe into the St. Lawrence River, Mr. Hosmer said, though anyone looking for an easier trip might opt to have him take the boats above the Oswegatchie River dam.

“It’s very calm,” Mr. Hosmer said of the water above the dam.

Rentals will begin Memorial Day weekend and continue through September.

The rentals will range in price from $10 for two hours to $40 for 24 hours. Rentals may be picked up from the marina.

Starting in June, Mr. Hosmer will provide food service to the patio, weather permitting, and he expects the location to be popular. He said he will begin with six tables on the riverside patio.
