If you are an experienced camper interested in enjoying a sea kayaking tour, but you don't have the skills to rent a kayak for exploring on your own, we have another option for you: a guided kayak rental tour. These guided kayak rental adventures are perfect for someone who already has camping equipment, enjoys the process of planning a camping trip, has skill at preparing their own meals in the field, and wants to stay within a tighter budget during their vacation.
Guided kayak rentals are accompanied by one of our expert kayak guides. By including a kayak guide with your rental package, you can expand your already existing skills, receive valuable counsel during decision making, and obtain crucial advice on local weather and wildlife movements. Our guides are in tune with the locations of our local orcas and can really improve your success for killer whale watching. They also know where the most scenic kayaking tour routes are, and can point you to the best campsites.
Our guided kayak rental fees include the tandem and solo boats, plus all related kayaking gear, and your guide. Your rental kayak guide will come equipped with a VHF radio and a complete kit of various emergency signal devices, a tool kit, local navigation chart and other navigation aids, and lots of specialized knowledge. As the guided rental kayak program is self-catered, you will need to do your share of all the ordinary camp chores, provide your own camping and cooking gear, meals, sleeping bags, tents, etc. In case you have some gaps in your personal gear closet, we do have some of this camping gear available to rent and it can be added to your package. Call or email us for availability of these additional items if needed.
Our guided rental kayaks are top-quality Wilderness Systems and Northwest Kayaks designs - built in America. These are expedition-style kayaks suitable for everything from exposed ocean to protected coves. Our rental tandems are 19 to 21 feet in length with bulkheaded compartments for dry storage in the bow and stern. The center storage area is either bulk-headed or utilizes a unique suspended dry stowage area, both accessed via a center hatch.
Our rental solo kayaks are Tempest 170 and Tempest 165. These speedy beauties handle like a dream and we've given them sea trials in ocean surf, rock gardens and other extreme conditions where they've earned our highest marks. Most of our guides end up purchasing a Tempest for their personal kayak.
