Relaxing ride down river into and around nearby marina with plenty of boats and birds to watch and enjoy. Perfect activity for a... More

This is the second time we have visited this rental facility to go kayaking. It is beautifully kept, affordable and offers top the line equipment. Parking is spacious and safe, sights on the river into the ocean are fantastic. Owner and staff are attentive and familiar with kayaking activities.

I have only rented kayaks a few times in a few different places. For me, Indian River was the best experience. Chris and his staff were very friendly and helpful. They have a great selection of kayaks and they made sure that my daughter and I had the right equipment. Getting in and out of the water was clean and... More

I just put my boat into slip 15 at Indian River Marina. This is my second year as a customer. The owner has upgraded much of the infrastructure over the winter season. I noticed several brand new kayaks of varying size in the storage racks, still in the plastic so they are brand new for the upcoming season. In speaking... More

Rented kayaks from this Marina on a weekday morning in early July, 2015. Chris and his staff were incredibly helpful and friendly over the phone and in person. They have a wide selection of kayaks that are well maintained. They helped us get in the water, gave us maps, directions and advice on where to go and when. We had... More

I recently bought a kayak from Indian River marina. They were selling their old rentals. They had one that I had actually been looking to buy. They did let take it out for a test ride, or I could rent it for a few hours. I should have done that because it is absolutely beautiful there. However I just took... More

I happily slip my boat at this little Marina. Chris, the owner, is a great guy and really tries hard to make your experience right. The Kayaks are all new and in great shape. Also has paddle boards that are new. You will launch into a very calm waterway that will lead you to a harbor and more if you... More

Great place for kayaking. The equipment is in great condition, there is changing room, clean and convenient. We did a 2h tour, beach and river and it was plenty of time. The wildlife is nice. I wish the staff would have explain better how to find the entrance of the river, we had to call to ask. I would definitely... More
