Rent a kayak for $10 an hour and paddle around Naples Island in an hour or take a leisurely tour of the canals in under an hour. The waters are calm and protected and it's fun to read the whimsical names of the docked boats. If you're renting for the first time there is a short video to watch before... More

Rented kayaks & went around the canal! There are a few places you can stop & get coffee & snacks as well. Had a great time, rental was $10 an hour. We watched a video & it was more than adequate as I had never kayaked before & had no issues. I would highly recommend renting a kayak, it was... More

This is the second time I've been here. Their kayaks are reasonable ($10 per hour, per person) and in good condition. Unlike kayaking on the ocean, you avoid currents in the Naples canals. You have to watch a short training video before they let you loose. They give you a Maps of the canal, which I couldn't figure out. Twice,... More

I really liked this place. We saw a video before our paddle board lesson and then the instructor worked with us before we hit the water. It is a great spot to do this because we were able to use the canal that surrounds Naples Island. What a quaint community with beautiful homes right on the canal. This was a... More

This was my first time kayaking in long beach in 13 years. It was challenging physically for my wife, our ten year old, and I, but fun still. Seeing the tiny, cute jellyfish were the highlight. We went in the morning with my siblings and it was a great group activity. The price and service were great. Plenty of parking... More

Such a fun experience taking the kids out for a "fun on the water" kayak adventure. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They show a quick informational video with instructions to keep you safe and stay within the rules of the bay. We paddled, per their suggestion, to an area where we saw numerous moon jellies. They have cubbies... More

Parking is just across the street from this location. We kayaked for a couple of hours through Naples, stopped at Starbucks for a treat, and had a great time. We even saw a seal while we were out! Kayaking anywhere in California is not super cheap, but this location is a good deal. It was starting to get crowded when... More

Great place! Exactly what was described in their website and T.A. reviews. Knowledgeable and low-key staff. We were on our kayaks for 80 minutes and they charged us for one hour, at $10 pp. That's such a generous and refreshing change these days! Good equipment, safety is emphasized, fun course of canals to maneuver, map of where you are heading,... More

We rented two kayaks for a cruise around the island and in the canals with a family member who has her own kayak. They supplied paddles and life jackets and the kayaks were in good shape. The cost was $25 for two kayaks for 1.5 hours. This is a great place to see the nice areas of LA.
