Shipping Kayaks:

Through arrangements with shipping specialists such as Fastenal, we can ship composite and polyethylene kayaks nationwide for considerably less than you could as a private individual.

Shipping costs for kayaks vary according to distance, quantity, type of carrier, and type of kayak being shipped. Polyethylene kayaks can be shipped to most destinations in the continental US by common carrier for $100.00- $150.00, including insurance.

We have two methods of safely shipping composite kayaks: (1) using a carrier that specializes in shipment of kayaks and canoes. (2) Using a really big custom made shipping carton, together with foam inserts, that can then be safely shipped by common carrier. Either way, the cost can run from $175 to $285 (including insurance) for shipping a single kayak. (The price per boat goes down if you are are shipping more than one).

If we ship via a specialty carrier, your wait will be longer but delivery is normally to your residence. If we ship via common carrier, we can normally ship within 3 - 5 days, and shipping is to the trucking service center nearest your home. Alternately, if you -- or a friend -- have a business address to which the kayaks can be shipped, the common carrier will ship there at no additional cost. (An extra charge of $75.00 usually applies for common carriers to make a residential delivery).

Shipping Paddles & Paddling Gear:

In-stock items are shipped within 36 hours of your order -- and often faster, especially if you ask. Depending on the item, we ship via UPS ground and Priority Mail. We can often ship Next Day Air or other express shipping if you ask. Extra charges apply. Our cost for shipping a 2-piece paddle ranges from $12.00 to $18.00. Our cost for shipping a 1-piece paddle ranges from $22 - $40.00.
