We have a range of Kayaks which are available for hire. All the one person kayaks (sit on tops or sit insides) are the same price.

Single Sit-On-Top

Our Single sit-on-tops are very popular and highly stable – fantastic for a novice paddler! Please note that you WILL get a wet bum in these, so a change of trousers for afterwards is highly recommended! We use Fatyak Kaafu Kayak, and find them perfect for novices to access all types of water, from flat water, through marginally bumpy on the harbour, to playing in the surf at the beach!

Double Sit-On-Top

This year we have added Double sit-on-tops to our fleet. These Fatyak Mahee Kayak are absolutely fantastic for a couple, or an adult and kid to get out afloat and experience paddling together.

They are extremely stable and easily go in a straight line.

Sit In Kayak

Our flagship boat is the Wavesport Ethos. We love these boats as they are phenomenally stable and easy to turn. If you want to go for a trip in them, simply drop down the skeg and they go in a very straight line with little effort. These boats are quite comfortable for both short paddles, and longer trips.
