Questions About Renting a Kayak?

Information & Waivers

General Information

We have a collection of kayaks available for your adventure on the water! We offer FULL and HALF day rentals for our kayaks. PLUS we’ve just added our fishing kayaks, with add-on options to outfit the kayak tailored to your fishing trip needs!

You may pick up your kayak rental at our shop, or we can deliver it to you for a $25 added fee for one of the following locations:

  • Prien Lake Park

  • Black Bayou

  • River Bluff Park

  • 210 Boat Launch

The cardholder on file for the reservation must be present at drop-off for rental use. The reservation holder must have a valid Driver’s License. Failure to prove identity will result in a full cancellation of your reservation.

A LA Wildlife & Fisheries Fishing License is required for fishing kayaks. (We sell those in our shop too!)

A waiver must be signed before you can take possession of your rental. If you would like to view our liability waivers in advance, you will find them attached below, or they will be emailed to you after you complete the reservation process.

Passengers 16 years of age and younger are required by law to wear an approved lifejacket at all times. Make sure to request a child’s size life jacket before your reservation date if you will be bringing anyone under 16 out with you.

TARDINESS TO YOUR RESERVATION TIME: If you are more than 10 minutes late for your rental time Lake Area Adventures reserves the right to cancel your rental in which only the customer deposit will be refunded. If a customer calls ahead of time and states they will be late for their rental time LAA will charge an extra $25 for every 20 minutes of tardiness.

Cancellation Policy

One person’s perfect day may be too hot for someone else and too cold for the next person. As a rental and event hosting company, last minute cancellations are very costly. At the same time, we understand that things come up, and we don’t feel it is right for you to lose your entire rental/registration fee if you have to reschedule.

Lake Area Adventures collects a $50 deposit for all kayaks and paddle boats. The deposit will be refunded to our customer on the card used to reserve your rental. Our staff inspects each rental before leaving the pick up site.

Our Cancellation policy is simple and strict, but fair:

Lake Area Adventures determines refund criteria. Customers requiring a refund due to personal issues, such as sickness, financial hardships, personal schedule or any other personal difficulties will not meet the criteria for a refund.

-Approved cancellations (Determined by LAA Management) for kayak(s) will have credit card fees and a 20% restocking fee subtracted from the amount paid by the customer.

-We do not allow cancellations for less than ideal weather. If the weather is unsafe due to high winds, lightning, or very heavy rain, we will call our reservation holders to reschedule or cancel (Customers will NOT be charged the rescheduling fee but will be charged the credit card fees paid by Lake Area Adventures)

-We reserve the right to cancel any rental at any time due to extreme conditions deemed unsafe.

-If Lake Area Adventures staff determines a customer is not able to comply with the rental responsibilities due to alcohol consumption, proper documentation, or overall ability, the customer’s deposit will be refunded but all other fees charged upon the reservation will not be refunded.

-All requested cancellations or rescheduling must be done vie email to Lake Area Adventures at info@lakeareaadventures.com
