Things to consider for your kayak rental.

  • Kayaking difficulty will depend on where you plan to go. Ask the owner for recommendations including the safest paddle routes to align with your skill level.
  • Ensure that you have all of the proper safety equipment, including a life jacket (PFD) and whistle. These items are often included with your rental. Ask the owner if you have any questions about local regulations and requirements.
  • Discuss the details for picking up the kayak with the owner. Some owners will meet you at the water (lake marina, river dock, etc.) while others may have you transport the kayak yourself. If you'll be transporting the kayak, make sure you have a safe way to carry it on your vehicle.
  • Houseboats are popular outings for families and groups, so make sure to book your reservation well in advanced to secure an amazing vacation on the water.

    Group Kayak Rentals Folsom Lake, Lake Natoma and surrounding areas

    We rented 3 kayaks , two people in our group had zero kayak experience . Mike was there early and told us all about where to kayak and see sights . He also explained the kayaks and life vests - even gave us an extra vest for our friend that had a paddle board . Our day was awesome, weather was perfect - we rented them for a full day. My family had a blast and they’re ready to go again !
