Our Fishing Kayak Rentals in Steinhatchee, FL

Our fishing kayaks give you the best opportunity to enjoy a day of fishing away from the noise, hustle, and bustle of a boat. Renting a kayak for fishing is a more natural approach to spending the day on the water, and the slower pace gives you a chance to take in the sights and sounds of nature and enjoy the great outdoors. Our clear-bottomed kayak rentals allow you to explore miles of coastlines, our unspoiled lakes and rivers, and our local beaches, hiking trails, and wildlife areas.

What to Expect When Using a Fishing Kayak

Kayak fishing is a simple, fun way to enjoy the water and catch some fish. Kayak rentals are cheaper than boat rentals or chartered fishing boats, and they allow you to enjoy a slower-paced trip down the river. Our clear-bottom kayaks are easy to handle, even for beginners. Our kayaking accessories include paddle retainers or paddle leashes that protect you from losing your paddle, as well as buoyancy vests and tether lines. You will want to bring your own tackle box, landing nets, and coolers. Fishing from a kayak offers some freedom from the restrictions of fishing from land and is slower-paced, more relaxing, and less expensive than fishing from a boat. You can launch your kayak from almost anywhere you want to, and the experience is unique when compared to other forms of angling. You may need some time to adjust to controlling and maneuvering the kayak when casting and reeling in, but most people catch on pretty quickly. You will also be able to get to places that large boats can’t access. Our fishing kayaks are very stable and offer room for you to stand up and cast. Our fishing kayaks can even go out into the ocean, allowing you to sneak up on fish schools and close in on structures where fish hide.

Where to Explore in Steinhatchee, FL While Kayaking

When you take one of our kayaks out on the water, you can enjoy tranquil, peaceful hours of fishing as well as wildlife and sightseeing opportunities. You might find manatees, beavers, river otters, gators, and more along the Steinhatchee River. There are also some other amazing places in Florida to see manatees, including:
