Kayak Rentals & Drop Offs


The Lowest Prices on Kayak Rentals in Key West!

Kayak Kings’ Rental Motto:
Go have fun and bring it back when you’re done

Standard Kayak Rentals 

We offer standard ocean kayak rentals from Cow Key Marina (Stock Island) to experienced kayakers only. If you’ve never kayaked, we recommend one of our guided tours.

Most of our rentals are sit on top singles and tandems (2 person). We don’t want you watching a clock, so we charge a flat rate of $25 per person – all day long*! 

Single and Tandem (2 person) standard kayak rentals from $25

Kids 6 and under ride with a paying adult for FREE! 

These rates include: top-quality kayaks that are easy to get in and out of, comfortable clip-on seats with backing, paddles that can detach into two, life jackets, and ropes to attach kayaks to (perfect if you want to take a break and go for a swim).

We are also very happy to point you in the right direction so you get the most of your experience!

*We ask that you please return the kayaks and gear before sunset.

We Also Rent:

  • Dry bags ($5)
  • Small coolers ($5)
  • Kayak anchors ($5).
  • Snorkel gear sets ($10)

You can take a sit-on top kayak out for 2 hours or the entire day and the rate stays the same. Call 305-296-9006 to book.

Drop Off Kayak Rentals 

If you’d like to start your rental elsewhere (besides our Cow Key marina), we offer drop-off rentals for a $15 fee (plus standard rental rates of $25 per person, per day)

We do custom kayak drop-off (and pick up) rentals to other areas in Key West and the Lower Keys (within 15 miles of our headquarters) such as Higgs Beach and Sugarloaf Key (or others). Additional rates apply for locations past 15 miles. Just ask what you need and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

Have kayaks dropped off at the Dry Tortugas ferry and explore the Tortugas!

Going to the Dry Tortugas National Park? We offer single and multi-day drop-off (and pick up) rentals to the Dry Tortugas ferry. Please check with the Yankee Freedom Ferry in advance to reserve a space for your kayak (extremely limited room on the ferry). Once you have confirmed they have space, give us a call!

Please Note: Beginner kayakers should only explore Garden Key in the Dry Tortugas. Loggerhead Key is for expert kayakers only as there can be dangerous currents. You must speak with the rangers at Fort Jefferson before attempting to kayak from Garden Key to Loggerhead Key.
