Sea Kayak Rental

If you are an experienced kayaker, we have a selection of quality sea kayak rental equipment.

Portland is a busy harbour therefore before you can rent our kayaks you need to have done one of our courses or have the British Canoeing Paddle Explore Award (BCU 2 star) or equivalent qualification. Please click here to see details of the British Canoeing Paddle Explore Award (link to our courses page) 

We do not provide a safety or rescue service and paddlers renting our kayaks do so at their own risk. You must have the experience to kayak safely without any assistance from Sea Kayak Dorset. You are welcome to take the kayaks to any location you think is safe to visit and we can also provide inflatable roof racks that fit most cars and vans.

Rental prices include: kayak, spray deck, buoyancy aid, paddle, dry bag and a waterproof breathable kayak jacket
