We are located on the water in Brentwood Bay, and Canoe Cove (Swartz Bay).


2020 Season health precautions: We value your health and ours, and are diligent in our cleaning efforts, both in the office and on the dock. In light of Covid-19, we want to reassure you that all gear is cleaned between each use, and we rotate gear so it's not used twice in a day.  Our helpful team is adapting our style of service on the dock to respect a greater distance between customers and employees.  Please reserve, pay, and fill out the waiver online, so there are fewer common touch points in the office.  This also allows you to get on the water faster!

Both Brentwood and Swartz Bay locations offer kayak, canoe, and stand up paddle board rentals, as well as lessons and tours in a wide range of boats suited for novice, intermediate and advanced paddlers. Our fleet consists of single and double kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddle boards (SUPs). We offer high quality brands such as Atlantis, Nimbus & Impex Kayaks, Hellman & Scott Canoes, and Cascadia Paddle Boards.


We take great care to match the right boat to the person so that you have the best possible paddling experience (kayaks are like shoes - comfortable when they fit well!) Our special launch ramp allows everyone to get on the water with ease and confidence. 


We also offer Corporate, Birthday Party and other Group rentals – please contact our Office Manager for more details!

Our rental group discount: 7-14 people (paying together) receive 10% off!

For rentals lasting longer than two days, please send us an email with your trip dates and desired boats. Multi-day rentals happen from our Swartz Bay location during the summer.

All paddlers must sign a waiver, releasing Pacifica Paddle Sports from liability. Any damage as a result of negligence or misuse, or any lost gear will be charged to the renter at the full, retail price. All youth ages 16-18 must have waiver/release forms signed by a parent or guardian and rent in groups of at least three unless renting with an adult. Youth between the ages of 6 and 15 may rent single or double kayaks when they are part of a school, club or family group if they have waivers signed by a legal guardian or parent. During rentals, every paddler must wear a personal flotation device when in or on the water. The consumption of alcohol or drugs is strictly prohibited. Renters taking equipment off-site with a vehicle must provide photo identification in their own name and pay using their own credit or debit card. Staff reserve the right to postpone or shorten kayak trips, depending on weather conditions. If a pre-paid rental must be cancelled by the operator, credit will be given to the customer if the rental cannot be rescheduled to accommodate the customer. All group bookings require a 50% deposit at time of booking with final payment made one week prior of rental, and may be subject to cancellation fees - please see your contract for full details. Minimum 24 hours notice for cancellation is required on all group bookings, otherwise entire deposit is non-refundable.
