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.

    Kayaking & Snorkeling Adventure in Tulum

    Gilmer was very nice and responsive throughout the process. For a private snorkel experience this is a great value. The snorkeling did not have the greatest visibility at times due to water coming in from the Senote but for a small fraction price compared to other snorkeling experiences I was very satisfied.

    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.
