More Rental Information

In addition to on site hourly rentals and takeaway rentals, California Canoe & Kayak offers a number of other rental opportunities.

Demo Programs

At California Canoe & Kayak we understand that you may want to try before you buy, so we make it easy.  Rentals from the past 30 days may apply toward your purchase price, meaning that you can take a kayak away or try it at one of our rental locations, and if you like it, that rental will apply toward your purchase price.

We also have a formal program that you can opt into, called the Demo Program.  For $300 (or $200 for whitewater kayaks), you can try out any craft in our demo fleet for a five day period.  You are given a 60-day period to try out as many vessels as you'd like, and if you purchase a paddle-craft by the end of that 60-day period, the $300 (or $200 for whitewater kayaks) will be applied toward your purchase price.  This is a great opportunity to really get to know your options, and is highly encouraged by our staff.

Hobie Adventure Island Sailing

Hobie Mirage Sailing Kayaks are available for demo by appointment at our Oakland and Redwood City Locations The price is $200 to demo the single and $300 to demo the tandem.  This is a three-hour demo with initial, on shore set-up instruction.  The entirety of the cost may be applied toward your purchase of an Adventure Island if completed within thirty days.
