Kayak, Bike & Paddle Board Rentals
We are passionate about enabling people to explore Haida Gwaii, and the best way to do so is under your own power. There is a range of touring and camping equipment that can be rented for short or long-term use through our shop In Queen Charlotte. Advanced bookings are recommended.
We rent single and double kayaks for day and multi-day use. Your rental includes a PFD, spray skirt, paddle, spare paddle, pump, throw bag and self-rescue float and we will help you launch from the beach in front of the Visitor Centre at 9am or 1pm daily. Clients can also rent additional equipment, like dry bags, with their booking. Kayak rentals do not come with a guide, making them appropriate for groups with some ocean kayaking experience.
We rent road and off-road bikes for day and multi-day use. Your rental includes a helmet - and tips on where you might go explore! Clients can also rent additional equipment, like dry bags, with their booking. Bike rentals do not come with a guide.
Stand Up Paddle Boards
We rent stand up paddle boards for day and multi-day use. Your rental includes a wet suit, a paddle, a leash and a PFD. Clients can also rent additional equipment, like dry bags, with their booking. Paddle board rentals do not come with a guide, making them appropriate for groups with some paddle board experience.

Rates do not include GST. Prices are payable by cash or credit card at the rental location. Reservations require a 50% deposit to confirm your booking.
Shop Hours: During the summer, our office is open from 9am to 5pm daily. Rentals should be returned no later than 7:30pm. Early pick-up and late drop-off can be requested for an additional cost.
Kayak Rental Launches: Kayak rentals are launched at 9am and 1pm daily, from our shop in Queen Charlotte. We ask that guests arrive at the shop 30 minutes before departure time to sort out additional equipment, waivers and payment. We then take all renters to the beach for an orientation, that covers route possibilities, weather conditions, safety precautions and kayaking basics. If you would like a private orientation outside of these time frames, or you’d like an after-hours drop off, please contact us in advance to discuss and organize.
Rental Transportation: Our shop is a great spot to launch kayaks, paddle boards and bikes. However, if you have a specific destination in mind please discuss with us first. We ask that guests do not transport rental equipment by road without reviewing their plan with us first - and on occasion, we’re able to organize special drop offs around Haida Gwaii for a fee.
