What you need to know

You may get splashed so dress accordingly, we recommend wearing shoes when in the kayak as there may be some walking involved. You can go barefoot if you would like. There are changing rooms you are welcome to use on site, so feel free to bring a towel and a spare change of clothes. You are welcome to bring a water bottle and snacks. We recommend sunscreen, hat and sunglasses for those warm Manly days.

LIFE JACKETS ARE SUPPLIED AND MUST BE WORN WHEN ON THE KAYAK

We hire our kayaks from 7am to 6pm everyday.

Our kayaks can be picked up and dropped off at Manly Sailing

We will provide a map that shows you the most scenic routes and the best beaches to visit.

WE RECOMMEND CHILDREN UNDER 5 GO WITH AN ADULT ON THE SINGLE KAYAK AND WITH TWO ADULTS ON THE DOUBLE KAYAK, CHILDREN 610 CAN GO OUT ON A DOUBLE WITH AN ADULT AND ALL CHILDREN UNDER 18 MUST GO OUT WITH ADULT SUPERVISION

If you are having a great day out on the water and wish to come back later give us a call and we will see what we can do. If you do stay out longer we can sort out payment afterwards. Try to stick to your rental time it makes life easier for us here at Manly Sailing.

Parking in Manly can be difficult there are a few council car parks nearby and most streets around have 2 hours of free parking. Best option is getting the ferry or public transport in and walking over to Manly Sailing. If you head in via Ferry visit our new ticket booth in the wharf to lock in your rental.

Every kayaker gets a safety demonstration and short paddling lesson before heading out, if you are still unsure speak to one of our friendly instructors who are happy to help and give advice. We have a calm safe water area just outside the Yacht Club where you can build your confidence.

When you are out on the water there is always a chance of a splash, if you are heading to a beach wear swimming gear.
