Renting a kayak has many advantages for those who want to enjoy a long peaceful day on the water, get outfitted for an overnight trip or even compete in a kayak-fishing tournament. You don’t have to worry about storing the kayak and you’ll always be sure to be paddling the latest models.
What many don’t realize is that it is also a great way to test paddle a kayak before you make a purchase — you don’t have to wait until the next DemoDay! Best of all, at ACK, we apply one days rental fee towards the purchase of your kayak or canoe. Renting a kayak gives you a “real-feel” scenario by giving you the time to slowly get to know the boat composition, performance and also give you a chance to personally load and unload it from your vehicle and even check to see if it will fit in your designated storage location — something that many don’t often consider.
What’s great about renting kayaks from ACK is that each rental lets you keep the boat for 24 hours. Kayak rental facilities exist almost every city but you are usually limited to renting by the hour, which can quickly add up. When you rent a kayak for 24 hours, you have plenty of time to enjoy it at a leisurely pace. This is truly an advantage when you want to travel with your kayak or plan an overnight paddling trip.
Each one of our stores has a fleet of about 20-30 of the most popular kayaks we sell. This includes models by Wilderness Systems, Ocean Kayak, Native Watercraft and several other brands. Our Austin and Houston stores also rent some of the Hobie Mirage Drive Kayaks. It’s a great way to introduce you to the Hobie Mirage pedal drive system — an experience that should be taken advantage of!
Each of our kayak rentals includes a paddle, life jacket, tie downs and even temporary rack systems for those customers that don’t have a truck or roof rack system.
We’ve seen it all when it comes to getting kayaks on the road and into the water so never hesitate to drop by for a rental, we’ll get you outfitted one way or another.
