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 and experience of a guide, 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 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 course 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.

Single sea kayaks are a 'sporty' option for those interested in going solo, and who will be comfortable in a less stable boat.

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.
DUE TO LIMITED INVENTORY WE ARE NOT OFFERING DAY RENTALS DURING THE 2022 SEASON.
