For those that are looking for the scenic route, we offer a full line of kayak rentals. These are "sit on top" kayaks, Perception Tribes and Dagger Wave riding Kaos which we use for ocean side fun and wave riding. For the sound side we offer Wilderness Tarpons and Tribes and “sit-in” Tsunami and Perception Prodigy 12 kayaks. All kayak rentals include a lightweight paddle, seatback, a required life vest and a trail map if needed when available. We also have sit-in Kayaks for Day Touring. These are used for more advanced paddlers who want to take longer trips on larger, more challenging bodies of water. These come in 12’.0” and 14’.5” lengths.
Our convenient location is near many water routes to choose from for you to explore. The new nearby sound access Emerald Woods and Cedar Street Access which are great launching areas for any skill level. From here you can see the sights of the ICW (Intercoastal Waterway). Take an afternoon trip and head to Shark Tooth Island, Huggins Island, or Bear Island or paddle up the White Oak River. Many of our single kayaks have angler setups built right into the boat. Add a fishing pole and bait and you're ready to go fishing! Kayaking is a great way to relax and get away. Fishing Tours (LINK)
