Vero Beach FL SUP & Kayak Rentals

Shop Information

Paddles by the Sea is located on the Indian River Lagoon marina in Vero Beach on the East coast of Florida.  This area is called the Treasure Coast, and it makes a wonderful starting location for a paddleboard or kayak rental.  Benefits of their location on Orchid Island are a break from most wind directions, and visits from local dolphin friends occur almost daily.

The team’s mission is to make kayaking and paddle boarding your new favorite thing!  The shop crew touts backgrounds in surfing, canoeing, SUP, and kayaking, as well as the only ACA certified guides in Vero.  True blue locals, the crew will always take the time to tell you about the coolest mangrove hideouts, what spoil islands are best for picnicking, and how to spot the many manatee and dolphin that swim by the dock each day.

Rental Information

Paddles by the Sea offers kayak and paddleboard rentals and lessons to help you discover the hidden gems beyond the beachfront.  Feel free to ask the shop’s crew to help you find the most compatible SUP and kayak for you.

Where to Paddle

Also known as “The River”, the Indian River Lagoon is the most diverse waterway in North America. The River is one of the best places to paddle, especially if you’re looking for a bit of an adventure. It is home to dolphin, manatee, otters, turtles and much more.  Kayak and SUP rentals launch from Paddles by the Sea’s dock in the Indian River Lagoon marina at Riverside Cafe.  Lessons are included with every adventure to show you the best routes to take based on the conditions that day.



Q Can I paddle before or after business hours?

If you’re interested in paddling before or after our normal hours, don’t hesitate to ask. We’re very likely to be able to accommodate. Sunrise or sunset paddles are great times to paddle and we wouldn’t want you to miss an opportunity to experience that. Wouldn’t say we’re always open, but if it’s safe and legal, and involves paddle sports, we’re happy to make it happen.

Q Where do we launch?

Our specially designed kayak launch and on site staff take all the headache out of renting kayaks! We have the only launch site in Vero Beach that’s on the Indian River Lagoon.

Q Are you open during the holidays?

The only other time we close is Christmas day. That’s it, pretty simple. Open 7 days a week 9am-5pm, closed for poor wind or weather and Christmas Day.

Q What should we bring when paddling out?

Weather appropriate clothing.

Sunscreen (reef safe sunscreen is preferable).

Water (please bring a reusable water bottle).
