The best way to explore Lake Lure is up close and personal in a Kayak! Even a beginner can paddle around the lake and take in our stunning mountain views that will take your breath away.
We are pleased to offer Perception Sit on Top (SOT) kayaks for rent. You’ll sit on top of these kayaks for fun in the sun. This design is great for mobility and for the ease of boarding and exiting your kayak. SOT kayaks are very stable watercrafts designed to float easily. Capacity is one adult with the ability to also carry a small child. Maximum weight capacity is 250 lbs.
Kayak rental season: Memorial Day weekend thru Labor Day weekend.
Kayak rentals are available for single, multi-day or weekly rentals. We offer a discount for weekly rentals. Sorry, we do not rent by the hour. A day is 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Weekly rate: $425.
Rates are plus 7% sales tax.

All kayak rentals come with paddles, personal flotation device(s) and a whistle. Our rates include delivery and pick-up. If you are staying in a waterfront home, we will bring the kayak(s) to you. If you are not staying in a waterfront home, we will meet you at the Pool Creek Dock in Lake Lure (next to the ABC Store). Please make every effort to be on time and contact us at 828-625-9500 in advance if you are unavoidably delayed.
We have a limited number of kayaks, so rentals are subject to availability and are booked on a first-come, first-served basis. Advance reservations are highly recommended.
On Lake Lure, all non-motorized boats must stay within 75ft of the shore or within the no-wake zone except when crossing the lake.
NOTE: Lake Lure is patrolled, and surveillance cameras are in use around the lake.
