Sea Kayak Rental

If you are an experienced kayaker, we have a selection of quality sea kayak equipment that you can hire.

Dartmouth is a busy and tidal estuary; therefore before you can rent our kayaks you need to have done one of our 2-day skills courses or have the British Canoeing Sea Kayak Award (BCU 3 star) or equivalent qualification. Please click here to see details of the British Canoeing Paddle Explore Award (link to our courses page) 

We do not provide a safety or rescue service and paddlers renting our kayaks do so at their own risk. You must have the experience to kayak safely without any assistance or direction from Sea Kayak Devon. We can not give you advice on where it is safe for you to kayak because we do not know how experienced you are, or how the conditions might change during the day.

You are welcome to take the kayaks to any location you think is safe to visit and we can also provide inflatable roof racks that fit most cars and vans so that you can transport the kayaks on your vehicle.

Rental prices include: kayak, spray deck, buoyancy aid, paddle, dry bag and a waterproof breathable kayak jacket
