In recreational we rent the: single Keowee by Perception and double Manitou II

Recreational kayaks have more open cockpits, less cargo hatches and a shorter hull for paddling around one area/bay.

A popular rental with our lightweight 9' kayaks is for big motor boat owners to bring them on board during their time in Desolation to explore all the Sounds nook n crannies.

9’ KEOWEE - sits solidly in the water, turns in a wink, and tracks well. Compact, with a roomy 39’x17’ cockpit; foot pegs and optional child seat. 36 Ibs. Great for beaches or lake shore fun. A convenient day trip boat.
