It is difficult to enjoy a kayak rental when the equipment is low quality, dated, and worn out. We provide high quality equipment that is well maintained and in great condition.
We rent Malibu 2 kayaks by Ocean Kayaks. Ocean Kayaks is one of the most respected kayak manufacturers in the country. Malibu 2's are sit-on-top, tandem kayaks that can be configured for 1-3 riders (see below). They are 12 feet long, 34 inches wide, and weigh 57 lbs. They are very stable on the water and easy to paddle.

Our life vests
- Adults and young adults over 90lbs: We rent Onyx MoveVent Dynamic Life Vests which are especially designed for canoeing and kayaking. They are very comfortable and can be adjusted to fit well on most riders. It's easy to forget that you are even wearing them. We rent M/L vests for riders who have a chest size up to 44 inches (which is almost all riders). We also have a limited number of XL/XXL vests for riders who have a chest size of 44-56 inches. If you would like to rent vests that are XL/XXL or larger, please contact us before scheduling your reservation so that we can confirm that is possible. If your rental requires more than two XL/XXL jackets or jackets for individuals who have a chest size of 56 inches or greater, please let us know before booking your rental.
- Children: We rent Stohlquist Youth Fit Lifejackets (or similar model) in extra small (for riders who are 20-50 lbs) and small (for riders who are 50-90 lbs).
- Bring your own vest(s): If you prefer, you can bring your own life vest(s) as long as they are a U.S. Coast Guard Approved Type III Life Jacket / Personal Flotation Device (PFD).
We rent aluminum kayak paddles that are 230 cm long. They are lightweight and easy to handle for riders of all sizes.
