Book Now

Book your reservation on-line, pick your boats and your start time and you are set to go! Your reservation pays for your first hour.  When you arrive, we walk you through an orientation, teaching paddle strokes, safety and rules of the water.  Once on the water, your time starts and you can stay out as long as you like.  When you return your equipment, your time stops and you will just pay for what ever time you went out past the first hour.  Rentals are pro-rated after the first hour, so you only pay for the time you are out!
