Renting a Kayak – Our rental operation is mobile (no shop).  The specific meet-up directions are listed on our Trip Choices page and are automatically emailed to you when you book a trip using our online system or call for reservations.  Please note: many of the meet-up sites do not have typical GPS addresses.  All of our kayaks are “sit inside” models with wide and flat bottoms which offer much “balance forgiveness,” which is ideal for first timers or novice kayakers.  All equipment is provided.  Paddles, life vests, kayak foot pads and cushioned seats are all adjustable. Most kayaks provide exterior storage to stow your personal items for easy access, however, they’re NOT waterproof.† The Swatara Creek is primarily gentle and no spray skirt is required. If needed, we offer dry boxes and mobile phone bags for your trip (free of charge as long as they are returned). Here’s the process:

  1. Meet-up Cocoa Kayak staff at the location your trip finishes, we shuttle you upstream.
  2. Staff provide safety and navigation instruction before you begin your trip on the creek. 
  3. When you finish (which is where you parked), we’ll be there to help you off the creek.   

  ..our system is very efficient, minimizing any wait.
