Rentals
Our waterfront location at picturesque Woodley Island Marina features the only dockside kayak rental facility on the redwood coast. Come on down to Dock A and we’ll provide you with the kayaks, canoes, safety equipment, paddles, and PFDs (life jackets) that you’ll need for a paddle on Humboldt Bay. Paddle around Indian Island to see the egret rookery or along the water trails of the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge. We have both single and tandem kayaks; for families we offer a double-kayak with a drop-in seat in a center hatch for younger paddlers as well as canoes. While we are ideally situated on Humboldt Bay, you are welcome to car-top a rental to a different location (not all cars are suitable). We also offer a “frequent renter” program to keep you paddling.

Note: No experience is required to rent sit-on-top or recreational kayaks; however the ability to perform an appropriate self rescue is required to rent a decked sea kayak. If you haven't had an appropriate lesson, we offer a number of options to get you paddling safely! Be sure to wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions and water temperature.
