St. John, USVI, Kayak Rental

One of the best ways to get the full experience of St. John's beautiful bays and beaches all around the island is by kayak. Whether you're a novice kayaker or a seasoned adventurer, everybody will have a good time kayaking around the smallest of the three major U.S. Virgin Islands! 

Since St. John is a popular tourist location, you can choose from plenty of different kayak rental locations all over the island. You can select an easy-to-use single kayak or a tandem sit-on-top kayak, and you'll have the option to rent for just one day or the entire week. These choices make it easy to explore the water at your own pace.

When renting a kayak, you can launch directly from the beach or request a soft rack to be added to the top of your car. Adding the rack allows you to take your rental kayaks all over the island to continue your exploration, thanks to some helpful recommendations from your local rental locations.
