Your rental covers the kayak, paddle, and the life jacket. There are a variety of kayak styles to choose from:

sit on top kayak
SIT-ON-TOP SEA KAYAKS
SINGLES & DOUBLES

Sit-on-top kayaks are an excellent option if you are new to kayaking. As the name suggests, you sit on top of them rather than inside them, and they are very good at staying upright and afloat. They are self-bailing, so you can use them without having any past experience on a kayak.

traditional sea kayak
TRADITIONAL SEA KAYAKS
SINGLES & DOUBLES

Traditional kayaks require you to sit inside them rather than on top. This gives you certain advantages, but it requires an experienced kayaker. If you want to rent a traditional kayak, you must haven taken an introductory class in which you practiced capsizing and self-rescues.

Your rental includes a stand up paddleboard, a paddle, and a life jacket. You will have many stand up paddleboards to choose from

SUP - Stand Up Paddle Board
STAND UP PADDLEBOARD

The stand up paddleboard looks like a large, heavy surfboard, and like a surfboard, you stand on it. However, here in the bay, rather than being propelled by waves you’ll be using a long paddle to move forward. Balance can be an issue so it’s best to start with a wider board. Stand Up paddling offers an excellent core workout.

racing stand up paddle board - SUP
RACING STAND UP PADDLEBOARD

Racing SUPs are typically longer and little narrower and have displacement hulls. Sea Trek has several different racing boards from NSP and Naish. These boards are less stable than our standard boards and we only suggest people with significant experience use them. If you are interested in trying one of these boards please let our staff on the docks know.

monster 2 person sup
MONSTER STAND UP PADDLEBOARD

The ‘Monster or Halibut’ SUP is a multiple person Stand Up Paddleboard. 2-6 people plus a few dogs. This board is a hoot and definitely worth taking out. It is extremely popular with groups of friends, families and kids parties.* $50/hour for 2 people, additional paddlers $10/person/hour.
