Humboats has rentals and tours throughout the fall and winter by appointment. Rent a kayak, SUP, or canoe and go out on your own, or take a tour with Brian, owner of Humboats, and witness the bay's diversity. The loons, cormorants, grebes, pelicans, ospreys, godwits and more are a few of the hundreds of birds in Humboldt Bay! These and a host of other natural waterfront wonders can be viewed from a kayak in the bay.
Paddle around Indian Island to see the egret rookery or along the water trails of the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge. We have both single and tandem kayaks; for families we offer a double-kayak with a drop-in seat in a center hatch for younger paddlers as well as canoes. Find out more
