Offering kayak and stand up paddleboard rentals conveniently located just north of San Francisco in Sausalito.  Enjoy the serene beauty of Sausalito’s protected bay (Richardson Bay) in a whole new way on a kayak or SUP .   Most of the year we are open seven days a week closing only on Mondays after Thanksgiving through March.  Join us in Sausalito for a kayak or sup rental today!

Especially during the summer months, expect high winds most afternoons. First time paddlers, groups with small kids, and stand-up paddlers are advised to make reservations before 1 pm. Out of an abundance of caution, there will be times that we won’t be able to accommodate rentals due to high winds on the water.

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

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 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 have taken an introductory class in which you practiced capsizing and self-rescues.

Stand Up Paddle boarders in Richardson Bay in San Francisco

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. We have very stable beginner boards and 12’6″ touring boards for intermediate and advanced paddlers.
