5 Reasons to Rent a Kayak on 30A

Rent a Kayak on 30A

With all the beaches, coastal dune lakes and lagoons in the 30A area, it’s hard not to take advantage of the water. There are so many different activities to enjoy from surfing to paddleboarding to just enjoying a bonfire by the beach. But both tourists and locals often opt for kayak rentals. Why? Here are a few reasons why you might choose to rent a kayak this May in 30A.

Lakes or Ocean, You Can Still Kayak

Many water sports activities are dependent on the body of water. For instance, you wouldn’t go to the beach to fish, nor would you try to surf at one of the coastal dune lakes near South Walton. Kayaking, on the other hand, is versatile. As long as there’s water, kayaks will still float.

Enjoy the View

Whether it’s Grayton, Miramar, or Santa Rosa, there’s a lot of beauty to take in in 30A. Sure, jet skiing and surfing can be exciting, but it’s not conducive to just soaking up the scenery. Kayaking is more leisurely. You can take your time to take in the deep blue waters and white sand, or even do some people watching. With a kayak, you can go at your own pace. If you want something more intense, put more pressure on those paddles. If not, just relax, coast, and enjoy the view.

Fun for the Family

With secure seating and life vests for all, kayaking is safe for various ages, and a great adventure and bonding experience for the whole family. At The Rental Shop 30A, we offer not just single seater kayaks but double and even triple seater kayaks. Block a day off to rent a couple kayaks with the family and explore the rare coastal dune lakes of 30A or challenge each other with a race. You’re bound to have fun no matter what you do.

It’s Good Exercise

Looking for a way to strengthen your arms and your core? Kayaking will help you tone your upper body with regular practice. Paddling a kayak may look simple at a distance, but it works the body more than you might think. After all, you are pushing against large bodies of water trying to move you in the opposite direction. The more intense your kayaking, the more invigorating your exercise. It’s a way to both get in shape and have fun.

Get Out in Nature

As a culture, we tend to stay indoors more than past generations. It’s not that we’ve lost our appreciation for nature, really, so much as we feel we’re too busy to take the time to see it. Renting a kayak could be the motivation you need to get out there and enjoy the fresh air and natural beauty of the world around you. Reward yourself after a long week of work or just remind yourself to relax sometimes.

At The Rental Shop 30A, we offer kayak rentals at just $65 per day and $170 for the week. We offer free delivery to the beach towns of 30A and even encourage same day rentals. Call us at 850-260-0001 for more information.
