Weather Policy: 

Check the local Weather Forecast 2-3 days prior to your pick up day and time.  Make sure you are comfortable with the given forecast and the price of your rental. If you are not comfortable with the rental price and the anticipated forecast, cancel immediately to avoid being charged.
This is the most fair policy we have come up with for both the customer and FKO." target="_blank">

Florida Kayak Outfitter strongly suggests bringing your own:

Water, snacks, etc., in non-disposable containers, no litter bugs please!
Sun protection: sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, & possibly a long sleeve shirt
Clothes & shoes you don't mind getting wet, preferably "quick-dry"
Bug repellent (if your destination involves mangroves tunnels or camping) 
Fishing Gear, Bait, Tackle and your current FL Fishing License
Change of clothes and a towel for the return trip home
Cell phone, in a dry bag or two Zip-loc bags


  • It's Florida: it rains somewhere just about every day, especially during the rainy season, but it usually doesn't last all day long! 
  • FKO's daily rates are already lower than what many area kayak renters charge for mere hours. If you use the gear just a couple hours a day you are getting your money's worth! Plus, you can paddle multiple destinations!
  • You technically pay for the rentals 48 hours prior to your pickup day/time. However, we prefer to charge in person to make the transaction safe and secure. Please have payment ready upon rental pick up.

Multi-Day Rental Info:

  • The third, sixth and seventh consecutive rental days are FREE on each rental. We call them 'blow-out' days.  This is so you don't feel bad about not using the gear in case it rains all day or you take the family to Disney/Zoo/Aquarium, beach, etc. If you use it, great; if not, no worries--you're not paying for it!
  • We offer the 3 Day rate all the time, BUT we are closed most of Saturday and Sunday for family fun time--we beach, paddle and fish every weekend! 
  • It is possible to get a rental on a Saturday or Sunday, but not probable...we get out early... So make your reservation early and pick up Friday!

Cancellation Policy for Daily/Multiday Rentals:

Once a reservation has been made, the 48 hour cancellation policy applies:

  • There is no charge for cancellations or changes made 48 hours prior to your pick up day/time.
  • Cancellations made within 48 hours of your pick up time will be charged FULL price.
  • All cancellations must be done by phone call.
  • See Weather Policy on this page." target="_blank">
