Who Should Rent?

If you have previous kayaking experience and you’re interested in doing a self-guided paddle, we would be happy to provide you with kayaks & gear through our rental department.

At the time of rental we will ask you to give some background regarding your previous kayak experience. We are not trying to put you on the spot – this is done only to ensure your safety and that you’ll receive the appropriate type of information to prepare for your rental.  At least the primary renter should be capable of performing a self-rescue and comfortable assisting or rescuing others in the case of a capsize. If you have an ACA certification or skills card, please let us know when you call to make your reservation.

Because of the nature of the Coastal Waterways, paddlers should comfortable paddling in tides and currents without a guide. If you are unsure of the area, join us for one of our fun guided trips to help you gain some paddling experience.
