Frequently Asked Questions

We suggest renters booking at least 3-5 days in advance to secure their desired time. However, we do frequently honor same day rentals. All availability can be seen on our reservation calendar by clicking the “Book Now” button. You just need to select your preferred item and location, and then check out the calendar for that selection. If we are only launching out of one venue, it takes a few clicks. You can also just text or call 419-326-2123.

We are a “Pop Up” mobile business that services the entire Northwest Ohio area. For ’24, we are posting a two week schedule at our new site here: Upcoming Launches.  Our most common kayak rentals happen at Glass City Metro Park, Maumee Bay State Park, Orleans Park or Maple Street in Perrysburg, Rossford Marina, and both Cullen Park and Howard Pinkly Landing (Riviera Park) in Point Place. We also do mobile drop off’s/pick ups for an additional charge. Please text or call us at 419-326-2123 if inquiring about boat rental launch locations. “Custom” locations and delivery do have a 4 boat 4 hour minimum.

Absolutely! It’s a blast enjoying drinks and snacks on the water. We require all renters are sober during the duration of the rental.

We require all rental changes be made within 48 hours of the rental reservation. Cancellation/reschedule requests less than 48 hours before the rental will most likely not be honored as we have to pay the staff regardless.  *If weather is the issue we handle that differently. Please see “What happens if it rains or weather is bad?”.

We have a variety of kayaks to fit most needs. Our single kayak’s weight limit ranges anywhere from 300-400lb. The tandem (2-3 people) kayak is a 500 lb limit. If this is a concern please call or text to discuss prior to your rental.

No, we meet you at the launch/drop off at the time of your reservation. We then meet you back at the same location when you call us or when your rental time has ended. No waiting and no hassle!

We handle all payments via credit card on our website. We collect a security deposit at the time of reservation and we automatically collect the remaining balance 24 hours before the rental starts. Waivers are also handled via our booking site. For impromptu bookings we can take cash or Venmo onsite. 

Kids and renters of all ages can experience the joys of kayaking. Renters 17 or younger will just need a parent/legal guardian accompanying them for the duration of the rental. Our new tandem kayaks can hold two paddlers as well as a small child or toddler seated in the center. 

Our main launch point (Riviera Park) is mostly calm water with a weak current making it great for experienced and first time kayakers. Our team always assigns renters to the best kayak/life jacket for their needs and goes over proper safety/use instructions at each rental. Depending on weather conditions the water can at times be more choppy and have a stronger current. We always suggest renters to go with and against the current to get a feel for it before traveling farther distances.

Our base single kayak and paddle board rental rates are $36 for 2hrs. Launches further out from Perrysburg may be a bit more. Then about 12% in taxes and booking fees apply. You can rent for any duration you would like and once you get to 4 hours an hourly discount applies. The tandem kayaks are $42 for 2hrs plus taxes / fees. On the booking site just add to cart to see total prices for your selection.  You can easily remove from cart the options you do not want to book. 

Kayak/paddle board renters can expect us to provide the kayak/paddle board, life jacket, and paddle. You can rent a small water proof case for valuables, or for day trips, we have larger waterproof sacks. The single kayaks all have a cargo hold and the tandem kayaks have a dry storage compartment as well. 

Please like and follow our Facebook page to see new promotions and discounts on all of our rentals. If you have a special event, large group outing, etc. we can accommodate groups up to 16 out of Rossford Marina (with sufficient notice). 

It’s all up to you. You can rent hourly, daily, or weekly. Give us a call to let us know your needs.

We offer a variety of Ascend kayaks. Something that was very important to us was to provide a highly quality kayak with ultimate comfort for our renters. We offer sit in and sit on kayaks along with paddle boards.

Renters going out under safe and proper conditions is always our top priority. We start everyday with the intention of being on the water and honoring rental reservations, but if it is going to be a bad storm or really rough weather we work with guests to reschedule their rental. We base these decisions on an hour by hour basis as most storms don’t last all day and can be raining on one side of town yet sunny on the other.

NOPE! Sorry, if it doesn’t take a paddle, we don’t offer it. That is a whole new insurance bracket >.<

Sunscreen, drinks, snacks, etc. Water can splash up from the lake/paddle, so we suggest wearing clothes that can get damp/wet.
