Apostle Islands Sea Kayak Rentals

For those with limited sea kayaking experience, we highly encourage you to take a guided trip with us before renting and going alone. A guide has experience and safety training who will teach you paddling skills and trip planning along the way.

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, and assume you wouldn't either! Our boats are simply the best on the market for what we do. For first-timers we recommend renting tandem kayaks due to greater stability and with two paddlers you'll make faster progress in wind.

We require that every paddler take our Introductory Safety Course, or a comparable course from a reputable organization before we will rent you sea kayaks. You must have taken this training within the past 5 years.

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.
