Rent a kayak for a 1/2 day, full day or multiple days. We will deliver and pick up our boats at any one of the many local boat ramps between Sunshine Key and Cudjoe Key. If you prefer to have the boats delivered to where you are staying we can do that too. All rentals include kayak(s), paddles(s) and PFD's.
We also have a complete line of kayaks available at the Old Wooden Bridge Fishing Camp which is near some of the best paddling in the lower keys.
Self-guided kayak charts are available and the hours are from 8-5 daily.
Rent & Ride is becoming a popular service for locals, returning guests, and the independent adventurists. We will ferry you and our Kayak(s), aboard our shallow water power boat, into the Backcountry. From there we will leave you with explicit instructions on how to navigate yourself back to port. This service allows you to paddle the shallow waters along the mangrove islands at your own pace.
