Wharfside Watersports Rentals

Wharfside Watersports is dedicated to providing visitors of St. John an unforgettable aquatic experience. Offering a diverse selection of equipment rentals, guests will be anxious to get their gear and head towards the beach.

For a comfortable and relaxing adventure on the water, you might consider renting a Hobie Pedal Kayak. These are powered by foot pedals rather than oars, requiring less of your energy. Their seats and pedals are adjustable, and the kayak even comes with lumbar support. Once you arrive to your destination, you can detach the seats and use them as beach chairs.

Paddle and Pedal Boards are also great options. Pedal Boards are powered by foot pedals, still requiring you to stand up as paddle boards do. These are similar crafts that are eco-friendly options for water exploration.

Dinghy rentals are a more fast-paced way to get around. These enable you to easily visit an uninhabited island, as they are 12' inflatable boats powered by 15-25HP engines. Groups of 4-6 will fit comfortably. Brand names include Yamaha and Mercury.

Any of your rentals come with free snorkeling gear. All equipment can be rented for 4 hrs or 8 hrs at a time. You can also enjoy a day sailing excursion with Wharfside Watersports Charters.
