  • We rented 2 double kayaks. They were clean and the staff was friendly. We paddled north for a little bit. We stopped at a few beaches so we could swim in the water. It was cool and our kids (8 and 10)...  read more »
  • We planned a 12-person, 6-kayak, 5 day/4 night trip from Parson's Landing to Avalon, over the Fourth of July weekend, no less. Clearly a recipe for disaster, or at least high anxiety. Not even close -...  read more »
  • Location, location, location- away from the bay so less congested area to kayak. Great service- started the rental "clock" 10-15 minutes after the rental forms were completed which gave us some cushio...  read more »
  • Ah-mazing! Very friendly and helpful staff, great prices! My family and I had an adventure in snorkeling they will never forget!
  • We had never used a kayak before, but the folks at DBOS were very friendly and helpful. Our daughter was nervous, and quite vocal about it, and the lady at the booth reassured her. They kept our bags safe while we went out kayaking, and after we returned the kayaks they let us keep the bags there while we went back into the water with our own snorkel gear. They advised us to go out to Frog Rock Beach, where the water was so clear we could see leopard sharks right from the surface. The crew gave us clear instructions to ensure a safe and fun experience, and the prices were great. The next time we are in Avalon, we plan to come back.
  • This is a great place to rent any ocean sports equipment from. I took out their two person ocean kayak out with my girlfriend and we had a great afternoon! The water is beautiful and had the water been warmer, I'm sure we would have rented some snorkel gear as well. I recommend that you get a waterproof sack from them for anything that you don't want to leave in a crate behind their little stand. It is only about $2 if I'm remembering correctly.
  • You'll get a great value for your money here. My friend and I rented a double kayak for 2 hrs and it was plenty of time. The staff was very helpful in launching our kayak from the beach and making sure we made it out to the water safely. The views you will see are incredible. You can also land your kayak on other small beaches you come across kayaking around the island. Chances are you'll see a dolphin or sea lion!
  • Best kayaking on Catalina!
