We rent kayaks all year, weather dependent.

We want to make your trip as enjoyable and safe as possible. Therefore we have the following weather guidelines in place:

  • If the wind is 15mph or over, we may not send you out on the water. This is both for your safety, and to ensure you have the best paddling experience!
  • You are more than welcome to paddle in the rain.
  • For your safety, we will not put rentals on the water within 30 minutes of audible thunder.

Sweetwater Kayaks management and employees reserve the right to refuse to rent to any individual whom they feel is not dressed appropriately for the conditions.

TYPE OF RENTAL KAYAKS and SUPs

These pictures represent the basic types of kayaks. The actual models may vary.

Sit-on-Tops
This kayak is very user friendly and is great for the whole family. Just hop on and paddle away! Only singles are available. Limited availability.

Recreational Kayaks
These kayaks have large open cockpits which are easy to get in and out of. They are generally wider and are more stable. They are actually more stable than sit-on-top kayaks.

Tandem (for two people) Recreational Kayaks
Double your fun with is kayak. A single, wide open cockpit design gives this tandem a canoe-like appearance. Just as an F.Y.I. the RTM Brio, pictured here, also has a small jump seat in front of the rear seat. This enables two people plus a small child to occupy the same boat.

Paddle Boards
Most of our rental fleet are foam boards, about 10′ 6″ in length, which offer good stability for the novice paddler. We have life jackets (required by the USCG), paddles, and leaches. So dress to get wet and come have some fun.
