Apostle Islands Sea Kayak Rentals

If you have limited experience with sea kayaking we highly encourage you to take a guided trip with us before heading out on your own. In addition to having the safety of a guide with you, you will learn paddling skills and how to plan a trip by the professionals who do this every day.


Ready to head out on your own? We provide high-quality, well-performing sea kayaks for your journey. We wouldn't like to paddle a bathtub, so we assume you wouldn't either! Our boats are simply the best on the market for what we do. 


We do require that each renter take a Introductory Safety Course from us or a comparable organization before we will rent sea kayaks.


Packages include the kayak, paddles, life jackets, wet-suits, spray skirts, paddle float, bilge pump, and sponge, plus one spare paddle per group. Shuttles are extra.

Tandem Sea Kayaks - Plastic

This is the type of boat that we use on our day trips. They have some storage room, but are not the best choice for overnight trips. Look into our Fiberglass Tandems if you plan to rent for multiple days.

Plastic tandems are available for day rentals only, when available. We use these boats on our day trips, so there may be limited quantity during our busy times.​

Full Day (back by 6pm) $60
