Day Rentals- Take Away and Drop Off

Tomales Bay is one of the most stunning kayaking destinations in California. Blue Waters Kayaking has single and double sit on top kayaks as well as stand up paddle boards for rent. You can take your vessel on your vehicle to one of the beautiful local launch locations, or you can let us drop them off for you. (Perfect for larger groups & for waterside rentals)

Tomales Bay typically gets higher winds after 12pm, so early rentals are strongly suggested.

For all rentals children must weigh at least 50 lbs and be older than 5 years old. Check out our FAQ page for ideas on what to bring with!

Parking is limited in the Point Reyes area.  Carpooling saves money, space, and the environment!

Rent a kayak on your own or with a group of friends or family and paddle along the granite cliffs and forested hills of Tomales Bay. Bring a picnic and enjoy one of the Bay’s secluded beaches accessible only from the water.

Launching your rental kayaks from Nick’s Cove has some distinct advantages.  The area around Hog Island offers excellent opportunities for viewing birds and marine wildlife.  Harbor Seals, waterfowl, shorebirds and raptors are commonly seen.  The launch at Miller Park also provides easy access to the northern overnight camping beaches of Tomales Bay, which are less crowded and more remote.  This area is unmatched for scenic beauty and that “nature getaway” experience.

Sit On Top Single & Double Kayaks – our typical rental boats

Included in the rental fee is a short introductory kayak lesson, directions on where to go and what to see, as well as your paddling equipment such as paddle, life vest, and a wet suit.

We also rent closed deck kayaks if you have taken a recovery course with us or another kayak outfitter. (One person per kayak must have taken the coursecall 415.669.2600 for availability)

After scheduled return time, your rental rate goes to the next time increment. No Grace Period.
