Should You Buy or Rent Your Kayak?

Rent or Buy KayakKayaks make a great investment for your family; everyone can enjoy taking them out on local rivers and lakes, while also discovering new places along the way. They are easy to mount on your car and store in the garage. But when you get serious about getting a boat for your next vacation, is it better to rent or purchase one? Here are a few tips to help you decide.

If you have never owned a boat or used one, then renting would be a good way to “get your feet wet”. You’ll gain experience paddling them, getting in and out of one, and learn how easy they are to carry and transport. Also, if you are not planning on using your kayak very often, renting one is a good option.

Planning on using your kayak more than a few times? Love to fish, camp, just enjoy the peaceful waterways? Then buying one may be the best choice for you. At Seal Sports, we stock different sizes, and our kayaks feature various options. We are the base-camp for Louisiana fishermen in our area, and support and educate new and moderate users. Learn all you can about each model you see before you buy. It is important that each family or individual considering the purchase of a kayak evaluate their needs. We can help you find just the right fit for your interests and lifestyle.

Fishing from a KayakRenting a boat also makes sense if you only plan on using one when you explore places on vacation. If you don’t plan on bringing a boat with you on vacation, then simply plan on renting one the next time you visit Louisiana or another prime kayak camping destination. We have rentals and can help our area visitors find waterways within reach. State parks in Louisiana, various rivers and bayous, as well as Lake Pontchartrain, are all within minutes of our location in the Mandeville/Covington area.

The next time you and your family plan on paddling around Louisiana or the Gulf Coast area, stop by Seal Sports and we’ll help you fully enjoy our area waterways. Our quiet and peaceful lakes, bayous, and rivers are unlike any others in the United States. You’ll enjoy our exotic birdlife, animals, and maybe even an alligator or two. Rent or buy, you are sure to “Pass a Good Time”.  See you at Seal Sports!
