Kayak Pittsburgh North Shore is located under the 6th Street Bridge (Roberto Clemente Bridge) right next to PNC Park. We are within easy walking distance of all downtown Pittsburgh amenities and the North Side. To get to the rental shop, cross over the 6th Street Bridge (Roberto Clemente Bridge) and take the staircase on the left (nearest PNC Park) down to the waterfront walkway. Turn left and head directly underneath the bridge. You can’t miss us!
