TYPE OF RENTAL KAYAKS and SUPs

These pictures represent the basic types of kayaks. The actual models may vary.

Sit-on-Tops
This kayak is very user friendly and is great for the whole family. Just hop on and paddle away! Only singles are available. Limited availability.

Recreational Kayaks
These kayaks have large open cockpits which are easy to get in and out of. They are generally wider and are more stable. They are actually more stable than sit-on-top kayaks.

Tandem (for two people) Recreational Kayaks
Double your fun with is kayak. A single, wide open cockpit design gives this tandem a canoe-like appearance. Just as an F.Y.I. the RTM Brio, pictured here, also has a small jump seat in front of the rear seat. This enables two people plus a small child to occupy the same boat.

Paddle Boards
Most of our rental fleet are foam boards, about 10′ 6″ in length, which offer good stability for the novice paddler. We have life jackets (required by the USCG), paddles, and leaches. So dress to get wet and come have some fun.
