Single Kayak Rentals and Tours in Catawba, NC

RATES Single kayak full day rental: $35 Guided tour: $55 ( please book ahead and make a reservation ) Groups of 10 or more receive a free guided tour! Welcome to Long Island Paddle Sports. We are the premier rental outfitters for Lake Norman at the Catawba River (LKN @ Catawba River) for kayak and standup paddleboards (SUP). We supply all rentals with paddles and a fully adjustable personal floatation device (PFD), both adult and youth sizes available. All PFDs have an attached whistle for your safety. Water conditions can vary on Lake Norman and the Catawba river but stay mostly calm off the main channel. Lake Norman can get pretty busy at times with speedboats and jet skis however Long Island Paddle Sports is located in the perfect place for kayaking or paddleboarding with plenty of shallow spots the motors can’t reach. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.

Captain is optional.
You decide if you would like to book with or without a captain.

Boards & Paddles


We offer a wide variety of sit on top kayaks. We have 3-seater Ocean Kayaks, 2-seater Ocean Kayaks, as well as 1-seaters. We have a fleet of sit on top fishing Ocean Kayaks. The tetra angler 10 is perfect for getting in those shallows where other larger motor boats can not. We have Prowler Tridents, Stripers, and Tetra 12’s which are perfect for fishing the big water. We also offer sit on top Ocean Kayaks for teens and younger children. Our 10 and 11 foot Venuses are great for teenagers, and the Yak Boards are great for children under 12 years old. We also offer Old Town Caspian sit on top kayaks. All of our Ocean Kayaks and Old Towns are sit on top kayaks which are impossible to sink while the storage hatches are closed and locked. You can flip these kayaks and jump off the bottom, return to them and keep on going unlike canoes or traditional sit inside kayaks which would fill with water forcing you to the shore to start all over which is no fun! Our sit on top kayaks will keep you floating and having fun all day. At Long Island Paddle Sports we offer Kaku SUP’s. These boards are the newest feature to the paddleboard industry. These are a hybrid kayak-paddleboard. You can paddle while sitting on a cooler, or paddle while in a sitting or kneeling position much like a kayak. And of course you can paddle standing upright. These boards have slots to brace yourself with your paddle for added balance and security. All Kaku SUP have not one but two dry storage hatches as well as bungee tie downs on the front and rear. Our Kaku SUPs can hold 2 adults.
