They charge nine dollars an hour all in and this is a good area for beginners to kayak in with canals and more open water. A great way to while away a few hours. We kayaked to a restaurant for lunch. Afterwards you can relax on long beach itself or pop along to see the Queen Mary up the road.

I thought this would be a great adventure for our family but turned into a nightmare! Our kayak turned over and we were tipped over and they did not express any concern WHATSOEVER! The staff argued with us and made us feel that we were at fault for an accident. I feel if they were not prepared for such an... More

The price for kayaking is a $9 per hour, you need to leave your drivers license or an id for a deposit.There are not many sights only canals, but if you enjoy kayaking then this is your place

We have gone kayaking before in the open ocean (rough) so we decided to try kayaking around Naples where the water is calm. We walked up and was immediately helped by the friendly staff. Life vests and paddles are provided. You can ask for a map if you need one. After watching a 2-minute video we were on our way... More

I had never gone kayaking before, but my wife had in Malibu. She didn't have the best time in Malibu when she went, but I really wanted to try. Our friends asked if we wanted to join them for Labor Day. I said YES and we did our research! Only $9 an hour, or $10 if you are using your... More

I've used this company the last 3 times ive been in LA for SUP'ing around Naples. They are keen on safety but you cant blame them too much for that. Most excellent fun paddling up and down the canals of naples. Def give it a go.

Thank you so much to everyone here! All of the staff were very helpful, friendly and accommodating. We had several children in our group and they made sure everyone was safe and happy. Everyone in our group had an amazing time! We cannot thank you enough.
