"These may have been the best days of our vacation."
—David (New York)
Rental kayaks are located at our base across the bay, eliminating the need to transport kayaks to prime paddling territory by water taxi. There is ample camping in Kachemak Bay State Park, adjacent to our launching base, and enough protected waters to keep a paddler busy for many days. We use high quality Necky kayaks and Nimbus paddles and sprayskirts, personal floatation devices, paddles, a bilge pump and a sponge accompany each boat. NOTE: rentals are for experienced paddlers. If you do not have experience see option below.
• Single: $40 per day
• Double: $60 per day
Rental prices include PFD, spray skirt, pump, paddle and sponge. Water taxi to Yukon Island is $70 ($40 for kids). See Water Taxi Page for prices to other destinations.
Maps may be purchased at our office. Please prefill your water containers in Homer as water is very limited on Yukon Island.
If you would like a sample itinerary of a route suitable for your own kayak adventure, let us know how many days you'd like to go for, if you'd like to hike and if you'd like to camp, stay at a yurt or a cabin.
For experienced paddle boarders. Take a board out in the harbor for a sunset cruise, go across the bay for the day, camping or staying in a yurt. SUP rentals include leash and PFD.

We can arrange for you to spend a day on a guided trip where the guide will spend extra time teaching you about kayak techniques and local weather patterns. At the end of the day, and with approval of the guide, you can then break away from the guided trip and continue on your own as a rental. Guide Support is $130 per person for instructional first day and includes RT water taxi and kayak rental for day 1.
