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.

    The kayaking rental experience was great. Mike communicated great. Great directions to the launch site, and great information on the sites to see on the lake. The only little issue was the storage compartment took on a little more water than was expected, so by the end of the trip, the kayak was a bit heavier than it should have been. I would definitely rent from Mike again. Thank you Mike.

    Single and Double Kayak Rentals in Newport Oregon

    Having done online booking, we arrived at the boat rental address, the men that helped us were friendly and polite. They helped load the boat on our car and we were off. It was how things should be when one makes advanced reservations. Everything worked as it should, we rented a 2 person kayak.
