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.

    2020 Supreme - Surf/Wakeboard Saguaro or Canyon Lakes

    We had a large group of all different ages. Burk was punctual and a great communicator. He was laid back and was happy to do whatever the group wanted to do whether it was tubing, surfing, or wakeboarding. He patiently taught anyone who wanted to learn how to surf. He made the experience fun both children and adults. Burk was an excellent captain and he has gained a large family of loyal customers as both adults and children requested to hire him again.

    Group Kayak Rentals on Wrights Lake and Ice House Reservoir DELIVERED and Ready for Launch (**8 or more kayaks)

    We cannot overstate how outstanding our kayak rental experience was with Mike and his wife, Liz. We were offered the option to pick up the kayaks and transport them to our destination at Wright's Lake. The kayaks were in excellent condition and had many great amenities such as dry storage bags for phones, etc. The communication throughout the entire process was exceptional. Thanks to Mike, Liz, and their great service, we had our most memorable camping experience ever as a family! We will definitely rent kayaks from Mike again!

    Burk is top notch. I would recommend him to anyone. He showed us a great time on the lake and had several water sports for us to try out. Tubing, water surfing, and jumping off cliffs! He was a great teacher and a great captain.
