Equipment Rentals

We offer same-day recreation use rentals of sailboats, kayaks, rowing shells, windsurfing, and stand up paddleboarding equipment. Our everyday low prices are some of the lowest in San Diego and are often even lower than the daily deal rates offered at similar facilities..


All our equipment is of the highest quality. Included for individual checkout are Sabots, Lasers, Holder 14’s, Hobie Cat 16’s, kayaks, windsurfers, rowing wherries, training singles and all flotation devices and other support equipment. Wetsuits are available for one dollar and picture ID per use while renting or taking classes. J/24 keelboats and Correct Craft wakeboard and waterski boats are available with a skipper by advance reservation.


To be eligible to rent equipment you must either take a class and be checked off on the specific equipment, or if you have prior experience on a piece of equipment, you must take a minimum 2-hour private orientation lesson. Further instruction may be required if you do not pass the orientation qualification. There is no qualification required for sit-on-top kayak rentals or stand up padleboard rentals. Customers must be 18 years of age or older to rent. Customers under 18 must be supervised by their parent or legal guardian at all times from a similar vessel on the water.






Equipment rentals are for up to 2 1/2 hours use.
