Kayak TypesWe offer kayaks from Perception, Wilderness Systems, and a few surf/play boats from Dagger. We renew the majority of our rental fleet annually so all of our boats and equipment are in excellent condition. We offer a variety of styles to accommodate beginner to advanced paddlers.

Recreational Kayaks

These boats are wide and stable. They are designed to accommodate paddlers of all levels from beginner to expert. If you will be here when the water is cold or you want to minimize how wet you get paddling you should choose a sit in kayak. If you want to put on your swimsuit and have some fun in warm sound side water or in the surf of the ocean then you should choose a sit on top kayak.
