  • 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.

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.

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 generally 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 Hourly Reservations:

  • Reservations that are cancelled by FKO due to inclement weather will be refunded or not charged. This can happen "at the last minute," usually within an hour or two of the reservation's launch time.
  • Trips that are cancelled or rescheduled within 48 hours will be charged full price.
  • See Weather Policy on the page.
  • Any reservations that result in a "no show"  or require less rental gear than originally reserved will be charged the full reservation price.
  • All cancellations (either by FKO or the Renter) must be done by phone.
