Kayak Availability and Group Reservations

We rent kayaks on a first come first served basis and the availability of our kayaks is generally very good.

Reservations are only accepted for prepaid groups of ten or more. For weekend reservations, start times must begin before 10:00am. If you have a group and want to make a reservation or customize a midweek event, please contact our guide service coordinator at our Marin location.

We primarily rent recreational sit-on-top and sit inside kayaks appropriate for total beginners and those looking to go on a leisurely paddle. Those that have taken an instructional class equivalent to our Kayaking Skills and Safety class may rent sea touring kayaks.

Kayak Demos

Customers who are interested in purchasing a kayak may "demo" kayaks at Lake Del Valle and will be allowed to swap out different kayaks during their rental period. You may apply up to $50 of what you spend on yourself at Del Valle toward the purchase of a new regular priced kayak within one month. If you are interested in purchasing one of our used models please give us a call for availability. If there is a particular kayak you would like to demo, please contact us to ensure availability.
