Q. I don’t have a truck or big car to put the kayak in, am I still able to rent a kayak?

Q. Do I need to bring help to load the kayak?

A. The kayak weighs 64 pounds. We will have one employee helping to outfit you and load your boat at the time of each rental. You may need to bring help once you arrive at the body of water where you are launching the kayak. You can also request delivery for a fee. Plan for 30 minutes to get you loaded up and on your way.
