We had a great time kayaking on the Indian River. We rented our two-person kayak from Chris, the owner, who was very welcoming and kind. The area is so beautiful, and we were able to get to the open Long Island Sound, with gorgeous open views. We can't wait to return in the spring!

This is the second time we have visited this rental facility to go kayaking. It is beautifully kept, affordable and offers top the line equipment. Parking is spacious and safe, sights on the river into the ocean are fantastic. Owner and staff are attentive and familiar with kayaking activities.
