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.

    There aren't enough stars here to reflect how much we enjoyed this! The communication was great from start to finish, Gustavo recommended Capt. Stephen who is so sociable and funny, he even took pictures of us that were just impeccable. We did a sunset charter and the view absolutely cannot be beat.

    Really enjoyed our sailing afternoon in Marina. As residents it was amazing to take in our neighborhood from a new angle and go swimming in what felt like the middle of the ocean. The boat was a perfect size for our group of 11 - lots of room inside and out to move around. Captain Stephen was a wonderful host - would love to go out again!

    This rental was well worth the price. We spent an amazing morning and early afternoon out on the marina and in the bay, saw plenty of dolphins, and swam in the ocean. The boat was perfect for our needs!

    Great day on the ocean. We wanted a relaxing trip for our family. Nothing to intense for our small kids, who had never been on the ocean. We toured the marina, saw some sea lions, did paddle board and kayak and listened to great music. Captain Stephen was an easy conversationalist and is great with kids too!
