This place is better than another one we tried and I'd recommend it, especially for novices. You can go many directions into nature or into the harbor area and you won't have to worry about aggressive boaters.

My husband and I wanted to do something fun and different while in Rhode Island celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary. We were so glad we took the Sunset Tour on June 4, 2016. We were accompanied by two wonderful guides, Alex and Jenna, around the Wickford Bay and Channel. The tour was from 6:30-8:30 PM. The kayaks were in great... More

We originally stopped by to buy a PDF as a gift and ended up going back to buy 2 kayaks, roof rack, etc. for ourselves when we found out they were having really good sale on everything in the store. The staff each time was very knowledgeable and very, very helpful. It may help that it was a bleak December... More

Very happy with our experience at the Kayak Centre in Wickford. Rented 2 boats (with paddles, pfds, a map - everything necessary) and had a lovely time. Paddled out past Cornelius Island and around the back side of Rabbit Island, turned around and went up Mill Creek, and came back through Fishing Cove. So fun. The folks at Kayak Centre... More

Rented two kayaks here last week. Professional service, good rates and great location...what else could you ask for? Staff were helpful in choosing the right kayak and showing us where to stay clear of.

We rented SUP's at the Kayak Centre's Charlestown Beach location. We hadn't made advance reservations but had no problem. The parking lot and launch site are small. It was a bit short-staffed but the staff members did a good job to get us out on the water. You can rent for 2 or 4 hours. While the area that they... More

Had to stop in while in Wickford as their reputation is well known among the kayaking community. Spoke at length with the owner about all things Kayak (business, trends, products, etc...) Knowledgeable staff, only quality product and good advice. The advice is free so if you are considering a kayak or kayaking accessory purchase I highly recommend that you check... More

Very professional operation. Really great place to kayak as the water is quite calm, and the scenery is New England! For a 2 hr kayak, bring snacks or lunch so u can pull over on a little island beach and relax for a little while-it makes for a lovely afternoon. If u have time, walk around Wickford for an ice...
