WHAT TO BRING - Attire should be according to the predicted weather.  Understand that the temperature is always a little cooler on the water and it never hurts to bring rain gear, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and a camera to help remember your trip.  Drinks and snacks, of your choice, that are appropriate for the duration of your trip are suggested. All kayaks are the "sit-on-top" type and as such, the seats have a tendency to get wet.


CAPTAIN and CREW CHECK-IN PROCEDURES and TIMES -  Your Rental's ETA is shown just below the event title at the top of this page. If your ETA changes, as it often does, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can schedule our staff accordingly.

Once there, you can park in the spaces directly on the side of the road or in the small parking area next to the sheds.  Wherever you park, please park close together as parking is limited.  Find our staff in the offices on the ground floor and we will confirm payment, paperwork, equipment, and then get you on the boat as soon as possible.

FLOAT PLAN - Your float plan for the paddle will be discussed and documented.  Bow to Stern Staff may assist in helping to determining the best plan.

VESSEL TRACKING - Kayaks are not tracked in any way, so it is important for you to stay in approved areas and keep the form of communication you have access to available in case it is needed.
