Kayak Rentals

Kayak Rentals: If you're looking to rent a kayak, Paddle Planet is your place. All our kayak rentals are Ocean Kayak brand kayaks, including tandem and single kayaks. Our rental kayaks are very stable and can be used on flat water paddle spots, such as the Carlsbad Lagoon, Oceanside Harbor or Mission Bay, or in the ocean. Please call 760.602.9767 or email your date, time and product you would like to rent. Delivery Available.

Kayak delivery is $20 for the first kayak and $5 for each additional kayak.

One half day is a four hour time block and all day is from the time of the rental check out to 30 minutes to our normal closing time.

Recommended ocean paddling spots are in the North County

Cardiff State Beach, La Jolla Shores, and Ponto State Beach in Carlsbad.

Keep in mind, however, that ocean paddling is only recommended when the waves are small and winds are light.

Our kayak rentals include all life jackets, paddles and seats, and helmets for those who want to paddle through the surf.

We can deliver your kayak to any beach within 10 miles of our shop for only $15.00, so even if you don't have a way to transport your rental kayak, you can easily get out on the water

Things To See and Do When Kayaking

  • Paddle out to the kelp beds
  • Snorkel off the kayak
  • See seal lions, sting rays, Girabaldi fish, and more
  • You can also play in the surf with a single person kayak.

Note: Ocean Kayaking can be very challenging and we require a Guide if you are new to ocean kayaking and/or the surf is greater than two feet. Cost for a kayak guide is $50 an hour.
