Reservations are suggested for the nicer days, but will be in limited numbers to avoid crowding on the dock.
We will need to know when you will be here, how long you will be renting for, and what you need in singles, doubles, triples, or SUPs.
We are looking forward to seeing you, but if you have any symptoms of illness we ask that you stay home.

We have lifejackets, touring paddles, and other kayaking essentials in stock!
Call/email us about future kayak availability! We have a wait list for boats arriving this fall and winter.
