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.

    Charters 55ft Irwin sailboat In Marina del Rey, California

    Beautiful clean spacious boat. Captain Gustavo was very understanding versatile with the price and great communicator. However, the captain he suggested was quite rude towards the end of the trip. Greatly appriciated the safe trip but Captain Stephen should learn some manners.

    Two Person Kayak Rental in Fajardo, Puerto Rico

    Hector and his staff were amazing! The boat was well prepared with everything we needed. Hector was prompt to pick us up after our paddle and he and his staff were very committed to us having a great time. Note to future renters: kayaks can be wet, and it rains in the tropics - plan to be wet.

    Captain Andrew and Ozzy were the best guides, we had the best day out of the water. They found a great area for us to anchor and swim around and also took us down the coast to Malibu. It was a perfect day, can’t wait to book with them again.
