About our Kayak & Paddleboard Rentals

Paddleboard and kayak rentals are perfect if you’re after a more independent experience on the water. Waterproof maps are provided and highlight recommended routes, wildlife hotspots, and points of interest. A paddling lesson and safety briefing are included with every rental, so that all paddlers are informed on basic paddling techniques, safety rules, and conditions to be mindful of while out on the water.

If you have any specific questions, check out the descriptions for each rental option (above), read through our FAQ page, and feel free to contact us any time! We hope to see you on the water soon!
