The white-sand paradise of Pensacola Beach hugs both the glistening Gulf of Mexico and the calm Santa Rosa Sound, creating a perfect destination for water-based adventure. In addition to parasailing, surfing, wave running, and sailing, kayaking is a popular pastime that allows visitors to experience Pensacola’s beauty from the unique perspective of the water. The best places to rent a kayak in Pensacola include secluded bays where you can view crabs, stingrays, and other sea life, as well as the emerald waters of Big Sabine Bay.
Most kayak rental pensacola companies provide all necessary safety equipment and some also offer lessons if you would like to learn how to paddle before hitting the water. The minimum age to ride a kayak varies by location, but most allow children as young as 8 to ride with a parent in a double kayak.
Kayak rentals can be rented by the hour, half day or full-day and prices vary by company and season. Some rental locations provide free delivery, which can be a huge convenience for those with limited space in their vehicle or who don’t want to risk damaging a rented boat.
