Tandem Kayak Rental
1 to 4 Hours
A child age 9 years and younger must ride in a watercraft with someone older than 16 years of age. A child age 10 to 15 years may be in their own watercraft, but with direct adult supervision. Children 16 to 17 years of age may go out without supervision, but their parent/legal guardian must sign the rental waiver.
A child under 42 inches tall may ride in an adult’s lap in the standard single and tandem kayaks only.
Our most popular option! A variety of recreational- and fishing-style, sit-on-top tandem kayaks for two people, or two adults and one small child (under 42 inches in height). Also a limited number of sit-in, canoe-style vessels – ask at the window for availability of this type. A doggie favorite.

Is it okay for a group of people to rent out a watercraft and then swap people in and out?
No. If a single kayak is rented, the person who signed the waiver form is the only person that can use the kayak. If a tandem kayak is rented, then only the two people who signed the waiver form can use the kayak. Thus, there is no transferring of rentals among people in a group.
