Summer fun since '91!

Kayaking, snorkeling and stand up paddle boarding are the things to do on Catalina Island.

Our booth is located at the Avalon boat landing, just a 3 minute walk from Lovers Cove Marine Preserve.

Rent a set of snorkel gear or a glass bottom kayak to explore this protected, fish filled bay or paddle a kayak or stand up paddle board down the coast to gain a new perspective of Catalina Island's natural beauty.

Kayak, stand up paddle board and snorkel Catalina Island with Wet Spot Rentals, it will be the highlight of your Catalina Island vacation.

The staff are really friendly, helpful and laid back. Gave instructions on how to use the equipment and also suggested routes for our kayaking trip. We used the $5 off voucher (available on line) on two separate days. Really enjoyed the trips and would highly recommend.

KAYAKING: Our family rental kayaks for 2 hours. The staff was polite and prompt. We booked online and check-in time was less than 5 minutes. Staff on the dock was so patience with getting us settled. Appreciated the extra time that they took to help us to help us plan where we should go. Was slightly intimidated by the harbor... More

It's the first rental place you see when you land on Avalon. The prices are the most affordable which is really great. The offer snorkel, kayak, and stand up paddle rentals. I really wanted to go snorkeling while visiting carat and they offer a snorkel, mask, and fins for $10/hour and the second hour is free. You walk about five... More

There were advert cards in our hotel that showed a picnic tour that had been cancelled a year ago! Oh well.

Rented double kayak and stand up kayak. Great experience. They give you quick instructions on how to use the stand up kayak. The kids caught on quickly. You can kayak among the boats or go outside dock area where the submarines go to see fishes. The waves are small so no worries. The water is so clear you can see... More

We have been to Catalina before but we had never been snorkeling. They made this so easy and fast when we're on our cruise. At the end of the boardwalk is their little hut and they rent snorkel gear, kayaks with glass bottom or doubles and wet suits. Snorkel gear was $10 with fins and it was a 3 min... More

The people working there were so friendly, offering a lot of good advice. They will watch your stuff for you while you're on the water or you can pay for a locker at the ferry docks nearby. 2 hours is plenty on a stand up kayak and you can easily paddle to lover's cove and descanso. Although if you want... More

We had a wonderful experience with Wet Spot. We rented kayaks for the first time. They were extremely helpful and friendly. I had a hard time (my legs were hurting pretty badly in the kayak) and the gentleman at Wet Spot went out of his way to make sure we had a positive experience. Kudos!
