Rent a kayak, paddleboard or bike

Create your own adventure and rent a canoe or kayak from our base in Talbot Islands State Park

We supply the kayak, canoe or SUP*, PFD's, paddles and map. Depending on the tide and weather we can make suggestions routes, local sites and what to avoid.There are miles of salt water trails to explore and many sandbars or sandy beaches to stop on and swim or picnic. All rentals leave from our location and need to stay here in the State Park. So that means paddling against the current half the time. We have singles and doubles, sit in and sit on top kayaks. Kids under 5 years old can usually fit in front of an adult in a single or in a third jumpseat in the tandems.The Talbot State Park office is open from 9am-5pm everyday. No reservations are needed for rentals.

*SUP rental requires prior experience on a SUP because beginners tend not to have the control to keep themselves away from sharp oysters in the creek. If you don't have experience try a SUP Intro class first.

up to 4 hours
over 4 hours
Single kayak or SUP
Tandem kayak or canoe
Bikes $7/hr or $20/day (at both Talbot and downtown locations)

Bringing a group?

Kayak Amelia does not take reservations for rentals but if you are bringing a group over 10 paddlers, call our office 904-251-0016 and we can work with you to make sure there are boats available when you arrive.

We want to make sure your group has fun and stays safe on the water. The saltmarsh creek you will be paddling is protected but this is a nature experience and a little local knowledge and planning can mean the difference between an outdoor adventure and visit to the emergency room!

We have created a trip leader's worksheet to help plan a safe, fun trip. All minors must have a waiver signed by a legal guardian. You can download a minor's waiver .
