We have lots of equipment, so we do not take reservations for singles or small groups (1 – 11 people). Kayaks are rented by the hour on a first-come, first-serve basis. We do not make hourly kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding reservations. Paddlers rent by the hour on a first-come, first-serve basis. For large groups we offer limited reservations. We are also able to accommodate smaller groups as a private or custom tour. Please see our Group Reservations page for additional information. We are a small operation and can only accommodate one group reservation per day. Contact us to check availability on your desired dates.
How old do you have to be to go kayaking?
You must be 18 or older to go in a single kayak or to paddle a stand up paddleboard. If you are under 18, you can paddle in the front of a double kayak as long as there is an adult in the back seat. You will need an adult for every child that wants to paddle so that they can go in a double kayak together. We have children sized life jackets. We can not have an adult and a child in the same seat or cock pit.
Do I need any experience?
Absolutely not. Agua Verde is a great place to learn – we rent to paddlers of any level. We have a variety of boats and equipment that suit a range of individuals, from first-time paddlers to advanced individuals.
What should I wear? What should I bring?
Wear clothing that would be appropriate for any outdoor activity, such as hiking or biking. On cooler days, layers such as a fleece jacket or an extra sweatshirt are a good idea. Also, make sure that whatever you wear will remain comfortable if it is splashed with water. We will provide paddles, life jackets, and spray skirts. Depending on the length of your trip, snacks and drinks may be a good idea. Sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats are great for sunny days. We always recommend that you carry a bottle of water or two with you. We do not sell bottled water, but we do have re-usable water bottles for sale and a water fountain.
Do you have lockers? Can I bring my phone, laptop or camera?
We have a few small cubbies, but they do not have locks. You are welcome to bring your own locks or we sell locks for $7. Large bags or backpacks generally do not fit in the cubbies. Additionally, we have limited lockers available to rent ($3-5). These can fit larger items such as purses and backpacks. We are not able to hold items behind the counter. It’s best to leave large purses or backpacks at home or in the car. We recommend leaving as much as possible at home. We have a limited number of dry bags available with your rental, but they will only fit small items.
Can I bring my dog in the kayak? Or paddle board?
Unfortunately, dogs and pets are not allowed in, or on, any of our equipment. No exceptions.
What kind of equipment do you use?
We rent high quality kayaks made by Current Designs and Necky. Our paddleboards are made by Stand on Liquid and Bounce. We have a variety of equipment and do our best to place you in something that fits your experience for what we have available.
Do you sell used equipment?
At the end of our season (fall), we sell some of our used equipment. If you are interested in purchasing used equipment, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number and what type of equipment you’d like to purchase. When we start selling equipment, we go through our emails in the order received.
