There are several places locally that will rent paddle gear to you. Of course the local REI
is one option that many people are familiar with. They charge $54 (member pricing) for the first day ($27 [member pricing]) each additional day) on a single person touring Kayak and $44/$22 (member pricing) for general purpose recreational kayak. REI does not count pick and drop off days against the fee so if you pick up on Friday and drop off on Sunday you only pay for Saturday. The guy I spoke with said they only have a half dozen boats to rent so if you are considering renting a boat from them then best to call early and reserve the boat. There is also Frog Hollow Outdoors
in Durham and Paddle Creek
in Wake Forest if REI is out of stock of their rentals.
I am going to reserve a kayak, because this sounds like a lot of fun. But I will come to the Hang on a motorcycle...
Is someone with "a vehicle with 2 wheels too many"
willing to help me transport the kayak to the water, and then back to the store at the end of the day?
