Kayak Rentals FAQ's

Our kayak rentals are perfect for beginners and the experienced kayaker. You do not need to have previous kayaking experience to rent a kayak with us. We are happy to show you the basics so you can get out on the water and explore.

Kayak rentals are currently available from our Hamilton and St. George’s locations.

All kayak renters must be 16 years or older to rent a kayak on their own. Families with children can participate as long as they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. All kayak renters 16 years or older must bring a valid form of Photo ID with them.

Unfortunately we do not permit any of our rental equipment (meaning boat rentals, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, or snorkel gear) to be paid for with cash. All rental equipment must be paid for and secured with a valid credit card (MasterCard or Visa Card accepted). This credit card will also be used to secure the required damage deposit upon renting, unless you would like to use a different credit card upon arrival.

Yes you should. Our kayak rentals are popular throughout the year so it is highly recommended to book your kayak in advance to avoid disappointment. All kayak reservations must be secured with a credit card.

There is a 24hr cancellation policy for all kayak rentals. Public Holidays/Bank Holidays also require 24hrs advance notice to cancel a reservation.

Yes we do. A $500 amount will be held against your credit card upon your rental, and will be released at the end of your rental providing that the rental equipment was returned in the same condition as you rented it, and nothing was damaged, lost or stolen. All renters must provide a valid Visa or MasterCard credit card to use as a damage deposit, and are responsible for all equipment and the kayak while renting. You will also be required to sign the damage agreement and a liability waiver upon your arrival. A K.S. WaterSports employee will check over the kayak upon your return to the dock/pier.

Depending on which kayak you choose will determine the overall total person capacity.

Our double Ocean kayaks carry up to 2 average 185lb persons, or 1 child and one adult.

Our single Ocean kayaks carry one person up to 250lb.

Our Glass Bottom kayaks carry one person up to 250lb and are perfect for discovering underwater coral reefs and marine species.

There is a minimum rental requirement of 2 hours, but guests can rent for additional hours or by the half day or full day out on the water.

Yes there is.

  • All kayakers must be able to swim
  • Kayakers must take a life vest with them or be wearing their life vest (life vests are provided by K.S. WaterSports)
  • Persons must not exceed 250lbs to rent a kayak
  • All renters must be in good health and good physical shape to be able to rent a kayak
  • Please note that fishing is not permitted on any of our kayak rentals

Yes we do. All kayak renters will get an orientation / quick lesson from a K.S. WaterSports representative on how to use their kayak in a safe manner, plus where the best places are to go to make the most of your time out on the water.

As long as you are not within the 24 hour cancellation period, you have the opportunity to cancel your rental with no penalty. We strongly recommend for you not to cancel your kayak rental due to weather predictions and upcoming forecasts, because very often the forecast is incorrect and the day might be beautiful and great on the water. Also weather and sea conditions in one area of the island may be different from our area during the time of your rental. So this is why we wait till the day of to make a final decision. Our refund policy states that guests will be refunded in full if they cannot go out on the water because of bad weather or if the water conditions are considered to be unsafe and dangerous.

The best time to make the final decision is within 2 hours of the start of your kayak rental. This way we will have the most accurate forecast.
