Kayak Rentals


Kayaks must be rented in order to use them overnight or for trips that don't originate at the JSCA.  A boat can be rented for up to ten days, and rentals are limited to one per member and four boats at any one time.  This does not apply to club events (trips, racing, clinics, etc.) - there is no rental charge for these activities.

Rentals are on a first-come, first served basis according to registration date.  Lessons, clinics and other club events have priority over individual rentals, so please check the calendar for scheduled events when planning your trip.  If there is a heavy demand for rentals, preference will be given to those who have completed their volunteer hours.

The Kayaking rental package is $20 for the first day and $10 for each subsequent day.  It includes:

1 Kayak
1 Paddle and 1 spare paddle
1 Spray Skirt
1 Pump
1 Throw Line
1 Self-Rescue Paddle Float
1 PFD

Your first step is to send a note to kayaking@clublocarno.com with your proposed dates and trip destination - we will give you a rental code.  Use the rental event below to complete your booking.

Anyone renting a kayak must first be cleared for fleet access (obviously) by completing a checkout or introductory lesson.  The actual skills that you require for your proposed trip will depend on your destination, but the Paddle Canada framework suggests a minimum of PC1 for day trips and PC2 for overnight expeditions.  If you are considering exposed waters or areas with rugged shorelines, PC3 or PC4 level skills may be required.  Be realistic about your abilities when planning your trip, and do your homework.
