Rentals at Bayfront Park on Longboat Key
The mangrove islands adjacent to Bayfront Park on Longboat Key are absolutely gorgeous – no crowds except for the occasional pod of dolphins, and so many nooks and crannies to explore! If you are looking for a laid back family adventure, this is your place. Paddlers can traverse around the mangrove forests, spot manatees and dolphins, and paddle around the Audubon Sanctuary Islands for a fantastic view of the birds. Or, you can bring your rod and reel and rent one of our premium fishing kayaks to try your luck in this locally-famous fishing spot! We are the only paddling outfitter with permission to launch at this beautiful area – come enjoy it!
All rentals include a paddle, life vest, and a map of the popular paddling routes in the area. A brief lesson is provided prior to launch, however, you should have sufficient experience paddling the type of vessel you intend to rent. Inexperienced paddlers can opt to paddle a tandem kayak with a more experienced paddler or join one of our guided tours to get the full package.
Please remember to arrive well-hydrated, armed with sun protection, and dressed in clothing that keeps you cool and comfy.
