Optional Items

For an extra cost, we can provide personal equipment (e.g. paddle jacket, hand pogies, dry bags, etc.) and rescue gear (e.g. split paddle, towline, pump, paddle float, throwbag).

Emergency Gear

For many kayak trips, it is advisable to take a marine VHF two-way radio, Personal Locator Beacon (PLB), First Aid kit, etc. However, we do not supply these, so you should hire or buy them.


We do not rent to solo paddlers,
so you won’t be able to go paddling by yourself in our hire kayaks.

Skills + Experience

To hire one of our sea kayaks (or whitewater kayaks), you must have completed a kayak skills course  or  have an equivalent level of basic skills and experience   or  a competent paddler will be looking after you at all times on the water.


A returnable bond is normally charged. It will be re-paid to you, if the kayak and gear is returned in clean condition, with no unexpected wear or damage.
