Exploring Catalina Island is something that takes a lifetime. Hidden coves, dramatic vistas and unique flora and fauna are just waiting to be discovered. Adventurers can take many routes to find the hidden side of Santa Catalina and one route is aboard an ocean kayak. Catalina Island’s leeward side is ideal for exploring from an ocean kayak – calm waters beckon and marine life abounds.
Descanso Beach Ocean Sports, located just past the Catalina Island Casino at Descanso Beach, offers a menu of experiences sure to please everyone from the novice paddler to the experienced kayaker. Single and double kayaks are available for rent by the hour or the full day. Gear, including paddle pants and jackets for cooler weather, is available as well, as is snorkel gear and accessories like dry bags and personal floatation devices. Looking to try something different? Descanso Beach Ocean Sports also offers “glass” bottom kayaks to give you a view beneath the surface, as well as stand-up paddleboards.
