About Us

Explore the unique marine life and underwater scenery of San Diego's Mission Bay without ever going underwater!

Our Story

What happens when a family vacation sparks a brilliant idea? SD Kayak Rentals! After our California family experienced the thrill of clear bottom kayaking on our vacation, it was clear—San Diego needed this adventure.
As seasoned business owners, we know a thing or two about what makes Mission Bay special– so we decided it was time to expand our horizons and add another layer of excitement. SD Kayak Rentals was created so locals and tourists can experience Mission Bay from a spectacular new vantage point.
