I will be vacationing in Pensacola beach next month. While I have a couple of kayaks my wife is not thrilled about dragging them along on family vacations. I have been interested in an RTM disco for some time now but have never tried one. Is there anyone in the Pensacola area who has one they would allow me to rent for a few days? I’d also be open to renting some other SOT kayak that wasn’t a barge. I would bring my own mounts, paddles, etc. Quick cash for you!
There is a kayak shop on old barracass ave I think it is called pensecola sail and kayak. They rent them there, but the shop has a real generous demo policy. I go there to vist the inlaws and do not feel like hauling my yak for 1200 miles. I have taken boats out of his shop for as long as 3 hours with no charge. I always wind up buying a thing or two I need because I feel so guilty. But he has weekl;y or daily rentals if you want to go some place other than the bay.
Pensacola Kayak and Sail
As Mutan mentioned Pensacola Kayak and Sail is a good place to rent boats. Their daily rate was $50 about two years ago. I picked up a boat on Friday afternoon and brought it back on Monday morning and they considered that one day. http://www.pensacolakayak.com/
Another option is to contact the West Florida Canoe and Kayak Club. Someone in the club may have that specific boat. And, they can tell you the best places to paddle. http://www.clubkayak.com/wfckc/ Or try Florida Panhandle Canoe and Kayak Connection http://www.fpckc.com/.
