During the 2021 season we at Sunshine Kayak Rental will be continuing to disinfect all rental equipment including life vests, paddles, and kayaks between every rental to ensure the continued health and safety of our customers.
At this time we will be asking that all clients and staff wear a mask while inside the shop during check in/check out. Your compliance allows us to continue to provide the best experience possible, while ensuring everyone can safely enjoy kayak season. We thank you for your cooperation and continued business.
