This is a great and inexpensive way to try stand up paddle boards and kayaking. You can paddle along in the bay or explore the canals of Naples. Don't eat at the snack shack, instead stroll up to second street and eat. You can't beat the location and price.

Loved it! The staff was nice and very efficient in moving a lot of people and getting them on the water. They were organized, and you felt like they were paying attention to you, even though we arrived just as a group of about 20 showed up. I felt they cared about safety, you have to be able to swim,...

My wife and I went kayaking with two of our friends while we we were out there on vacation. Amazing! The staff was friendly and the scenery was beautiful. It was my first time kayaking and I fell in love with it,. We will go back there again on our next trip to California.

Great idea to spend a few hours in the water. I think we always think we have to go somewhere far away to do something fun when really there are great things to do in Long Beach. I haven't kayaked in a million years, and it was pretty easy to pick back up. The weather was absurdly gorgeous to be... More

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

Rented a 2 man kayak for son and myself. We had a great time. The water was calm, our first time kayaking. The kayaks are easy to stear and they supply you with life jackets and ziplock back to keep your phone in etc. We were gone for abotu 2 hours, which was fine for our first trip. This included...

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
