Boat & Gear Rentals

We understand that some of you may be flying to our event and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to attend. California Canoe & Kayak has a wide variety of sea kayaks, whitewater kayaks and crossover kayaks available to rent.

Discounted rates for Paddle Golden Gate are as follows:

  • Plastic sea kayaks - $50.00 for 1 day, $25.00 for additional days
  • Composite sea kayaks - $100 for 1 day, $50.00 for additional days

(Composite kayaks may only be used in a limited number of classes where damage is unlikely - we recommend plastic kayaks for most classes.)

This includes delivery to the event site and return to California Canoe & Kayak. Kayak rentals include a paddle, life jacket, wetsuit, paddle jacket, spray skirt, helmet, pump and paddle float.

Please call our Oakland store for availability of a specific brand or model and to make your rental reservation: (510) 893-7833.

When making your reservation please tell us what classes you are taking so that we can provide you with a suitable kayak. We will need your height and weight to ensure we select the right kayak and gear sizes for you.

You will be required to complete a rental agreement when taking possession of the kayak on the first day of your rental.

Please Note: A Security and Cleaning Deposit is due at the time of pick-up. Deposit is based on the value of the boat, board and or equipment rented. A $25.00 Cleaning Fee will be charged if the equipment is returned dirty.
