It can easily cost between $1000 and $2000 to purchase your own boat, pfd, paddles, flotation and other equipment. Renting from the club can save considerable expense and allow you to concentrate on acquiring personal gear such as wet suits, wet boots, roof racks, ropes, etc. Renting also provides you with the opportunity to try a variety of boats before you decide on one to purchase.

Our rental rates are low compared to normal commercial rates.

Courses have first priority on boats and equipment. Bookings must be made by Wednesday evening before the rental and returned by the following Wednesday.   

Try renting this season!
