Overview

We have several trips and routes available starting at our location in Chester's front harbour. Explore the hidden beauty of the local islands or take a coastal trip along the many little inlets. During your adventure, you can stop for lunch at ocean front restaurants like the Galley, the Sea Side Shanty or the Rope Loft. All rental clients receive comprehensive personalized instruction and a briefing covering basic safety. Our briefing sessions familiarize you with the waters around Chester and with the equipment we provide to maximize your experience. We would be glad to transport kayaks to your location for an additional transportation and delivery fee. All our kayaks are fitted with retractable rudders or skegs and have 2 water tight compartments. Their bright colours are for safety purposes. Our policy is to replace equipment every year, so you'll be using the best and newest equipment available. Kayak Shack Hours of Operation: 8 a.m. - 7 p.m., May 15th to October 15th, 7 days a week, weather permitting. Reservations are suggested at least 24 hours in advance.
