Glide Through Mission Bay With Aqua Adventures Kayaks & Paddleboards

Get out on the water with Aqua Adventures, with a dockside location right on Mission Bay in sunny San Diego! Rent stand-up paddleboards, kayaks (single, tandem, sea, outrigger, surf ski), hydro bikes (single and tandem), and canopied Duffy boats.

At Aqua Adventures, rent for 90 minutes or more. Just choose your excursion, hop on and go! Glide along Mission Bay’s inlets and isles, taking in fresh air, while spotting sea lions, dolphins and sea birds. Take a break on any of the nearby beaches before heading out again.

Stand-up paddleboards are not only a great way to explore the Bay’s scenery — they make for fun, full-body workouts. The boards are available on a first-come first-served basis, with reservations preferred but not required. San Diego’s premier water sports rental company also offers single and tandem kayaks, perfect for paddling close to marine life. A step-down platform helps launch the kayaks, removing any fear out of getting in and out of the vessels. Like paddleboards, kayaks can be rented first-come, first-served.

New to paddling? Try a one-hour lesson. Aqua Adventures operates on calm, sheltered waters with knowledgeable instructors who can take you from complete novice to accomplished paddler in no time at all. For a real stretch, try SUP yoga on Saturday mornings. Test your balance on the board while doing staples like downward dog, cobra and warrior poses. Other aquatic offerings include Paddling With Your Pup clinics (doggie life jackets provided!) and plying the waters during a Mission Bay Wildlife Tour.

In the mood to meander? Take a slow cruise on a 12-passenger Duffy boat while exploring Mission Bay’s 27-mile shoreline. Check out bird species, Sea World, picturesque beaches, and beautiful yachts. Dock and dine at any of the Bay’s waterside resorts or bring your own assortment of food and beverages on board. Choose to captain the boat or sit back and let Aqua Adventures steer on either a public (shared) or private excursion. Chartered cruises come with light snacks or can be upgraded to all manners of charcuterie, artisan cheeses, chocolate, and chilled bottle of wine. A non-alcoholic option is also available.

The outfitter also features a retail shop, carrying top water sports equipment and accessories. Browse the online catalog and then stop in to pick up your order.
