Kayak Rentals

Explore Webhannet River by kayak.

Rent kayaks from Webhannet River Boat Yard and experience our beautiful region from the water. We offer single and tandem kayaks along with all the gear you need to paddle down the river.

Our rentals are un-guided adventures.  That simply means that you can go anywhere within Wells Harbor and the estuary that you would like to explore. You go at your own pace.  The only off limit area is between the Jetties or beyond into the open ocean. We will help fit you for a life vest and give you some instruction, including great destinations:

The Destination Paddle Adventure 
Paddle into the main part of the Webhannet River to the right of our launch area. This will take you toward the Mile Road Bridge (your “destination” point), and Billy’s Chowder House. It takes about 45 minutes to reach the bridge and beyond that is an estuary you can explore.  

The Marsh and Estuary Paddle Adventure
Paddle around the town dock to the left of our launch area and into the Wells Harbor. As you continue in that direction there are two main estuary brooks. The first “Lower Landing” wraps around Lord’s Lobster Restaurant and carries you into the estuary along the Harbor Road. The second entrance “Upper Landing” is located toward Drakes Island and carries you through a winding path through the estuary with a nice view of a private wooden cabin at the end. Plan on about 2 hours to explore.
