rental boatsOur beautiful waterfront kayak center on Mission Bay features dockside kayak rentals and unlimited parking so you're in and out FAST. At many other rental companies, you'll spend 30 minutes finding parking and/or have to drag your kayak to the water.

With us, you'll be paddling within minutes of your arrival!

We have the largest selection in San Diego with dozens of models of sit-on-top kayaks, ocean kayaks, recreational kayaks, sea kayaks, surf kayaks, and whitewater kayaks to choose from. We have both single and tandem versions of most categories. We spend many times more on our PFDs, paddles, and other equipment than our competitors in order to give you the best experience possible! We also rent STAND UP PADDLEBOARDS. Check out our prices and visit our facility and you'll see why we're the best rental value in town!

DISCOUNTS: In this economy, it's hard to identify any group that needs or deserves discounts more than any other. Because we respect ALL our customers and believe that healthy, fun activities should be affordable to everyone, we've lowered our prices to the minimum possible while still keeping our own economy viable. We don't inflate our prices so we can offer "half off" deals that only profit giant corporate monsters. Check out our amazing deals below for pre-paid frequent renter cards - they beat any "groupon deal" you can find!

All kayak rentals include the following (as necessary): paddle, life jacket (PFD), seat back, spray skirt, bilge pump/paddle float, float bags, helmet.

No experience is required to rent sit-on-top or recreational kayaks; however the ability to perform an appropriate self rescue is required to rent a decked sea kayak or whitewater kayak. If you haven't had an appropriate lesson, we offer a number of options to get you paddling safely!
