Kayak Rentals

Port Charlotte / Punta Gorda / Peace River

Port Charlotte Beach Complex


Come paddle the Mangrove forest creeks and trails of the Charlotte Harbor Estuary.

We are partnered with Charlotte County as their kayak rental company for the Charlotte Harbor Estuary. Our base of operations is located in the Port Charlotte Beach Complex (Park) at the end of Harbor Blvd. Come on out and rent a kayak or take a tour with us.

As the dog days of summer approach, it is best to schedule your rental, tour or fishing trip as early as you can. You'll see more wildlife and the temperatures will be more comfortable. The mornings are always best in the summer. Not only for the milder temps but in this area of Florida there is always a chance of an afternoon thunderstorm. The only exception to this rule of thumb is sometimes after an afternoon shower - after the storm has passed and things have settled, the paddling is usually great. You can smell the ozone in the air, the skys are beautiful and the waters are calm.

In the summer, scheduling is required. We are not at the beach as much as in the winter but we are open for business every day - sunrise to sunset - by appointment. Use the Contact Us page or give us a call (941) 255-3686 to schedule your outing.

During the winter season, you'll find us on the beach down by the Bocce Ball courts most days between 10AM and 4PM, weather permitting but it is always best to schedule your trip by calling (941) 255-3686. It helps us and it helps you by insuring we have the type and number of boats and accessories you require at the time of your rental. During the summer, unless there are scheduled rentals we are there Friday, Saturday and Sunday from about 11AM to 4PM. Walk ups are welcome but again, it is always best to schedule.

Peace River

We also deliver kayaks to the Peace River for un-guided rentals as well as for our Master Naturalist guided tours. This destination is one of the favorite tours we offer. We refer to this tour as "Old Florida". Things haven't changed much around here. For these trips, you will need to schedule a rental or tour in advance by calling 941 255-3686 or, by email. We can then reserve the type of boat(s) you require and schedule a date and time for your kayak outing.

We'll meet you at the Deep Creek Park at the end of Peace River St. off Kings Hwy. at the arranged time with the boats and accessories required for your Peace River adventure.
