The prices in the chart do not include the $15 cleaning fee that is charged per rental period per kayak. If you take the kayak into the sea or pool water only and clean it well enough to be put back on the shelf, then the $15 dollars are returnable. If you bring the kayak into a fresh water area, then we keep the $15 to help pay for the materials and time required to Didymo clean it. A $15 cleaning fee is charged.
If you are wanting to Demo a kayak prior to purchasing: you can try a range of kayaks before buying you may hire as many different models as you please over a three month period (up to two days per hire period count towards this offer) and have the rental total deducted from the final purchase price (cleaning fees are not included in the amount to be deducted).
Coast to Coast season from Feb 1 to the Sunday after the coast to coast, all kayaks intended for use for C2C training are $100 per day for all days with or without equipment, whether they are used or not (to cover the period of the race $500 will be required). We recommend that you bring your own paddle and gear, so that all you have to get acquainted with is the kayak and the river, but we can help you out with whatever we have. Accessories should be booked in advance if you need something in particular.
If you require hire for more than 20 days contact us for a quote. Prices include GST

If kayaks or gear are returned broken - we will charge you for the repair. If it cannot be repaired we will charge you for a replacement. We expect you to look after the kayaks and gear as if it was your own, if not better, after all if you respect and look after the gear, it will look after you.
If kayaks or gear is returned to us in a state which doesn't allow the next customer to take it away and be happy to use it because of unwashed, unclean, parts removed etc, we will charge you a cleaning fee of $15 per item. This includes a didymo cleaning fee and mud/sand on kayaks.
