Rental Policy

We have a policy that we don't rent kayaks to solo paddlers because of liability and safety reasons despite your level of experience. We encourage you to plan ahead and find a like-minded friend who wants to travel with you to Glacier Bay.  If you're unable to find a partner, another option would be to contact Alaska Boat and Kayak in Juneau about renting a single kayak and coordinate your trip dates with the AMHS ferry schedule between Juneau and Gustavus.

Glacier Bay Sea Kayaks provides well-maintained and clean equipment for rent. During your rental session, our staff will inspect the condition of the kayak with you to ensure it has no damage. Upon your return, our staff will again inspect the condition of the kayak with you for any chips, scrapes, holes or other damage. We expect the renter to return equipment in clean condition and good repair. Replacement costs will be charged to the renter's credit card on file if an item has to be replaced because of loss or irreparable damage to the rented equipment. For each day the kayak is out of service, repairs to the fiberglass kayaks will be charged at a rate of $65 per day for double kayaks and $50 per day for single kayaks.

Cancellation Policy

Reservations canceled 30 or more days in advance are subject to a 10% cancellation penalty.  Reservations canceled less than 30 days in advance are subject to a 100% penalty. Please see our Reservations page for information on trip deposits and reservations.

No refunds will be made for early returns. Please understand we are making a commitment that we will reserve a kayak for you for the entire length of your trip. During our short, busy summer season, we often need to redirect customers to available dates or turn away business in order to fulfill this commitment. If you do return a day or two early, you might consider keeping your kayak for a Bartlett Cove day paddle or Beardslees overnight.
