Stay Safe—both on and off the River.

Welcome to About Kayaks River Rentals, the only kayak rental on the St. Sebastian River, one of Florida’s last remaining natural waterways, abundant with wildlife. We're located in Indian River County on Florida's Treasure Coast, just north of Vero Beach.

Kayaking is an eco-friendly way to immerse yourself in the beauty and wonder of nature. We specialize in 2-3 hour self-guided tours as well as custom-designed Group Adventures featuring the facilities of Dale Wimbrow Park. Paddling is easy, going downstream with the gentle current with sit-inside and sit-on-top single and tandem kayaks. We supply you with the kayaks, paddles, life vests, and instructions. After only a few minutes on the water, most beginners find paddling easy and fun. Exploring the beautiful St. Sebastian and its wildlife is an adventure, creating memories that last a lifetime.

About Kayaks River Rentals is a member of the American Canoe Association (ACA ) a nonprofit organization that promotes fun and responsible canoeing, kayaking, and rafting. Founded in 1880, the ACA actively advocates recreational access and stewardship of America's water trails. Although the Sebastian River is typically very gentle, easy to navigate, and uncrowded during these brief excursions, you may wish to review the "Top Ten Safety Tips" including "Practices, Ethics, and Conduct" at American Canoe Association.
