Need a Paddleboard Rental?

Here’s the most complete listing of paddleboard rental shops in Ontario.

For many standup paddleboarders, renting a SUP at a paddling destination makes great sense. On one hand, new paddlers can try a paddleboard rental to see if they like the sport. On the other, well-seasoned paddlers often find it easier to rent a paddleboard than to transport their own to faraway locations. 

Whether you rent or buy, you’ll benefit from learning and practicing essential paddleboarding safety skills and strokes before setting out. Visit Paddle Canada or the American Canoe Association to find a course or certified instructor near you. Taking a course is also a great way to meet other paddlers in your area.

Standup paddleboarders in Ontario will need to have a few pieces of mandatory safety equipment on board—always check with your outfitter that your rental includes these items, or bring your own:

  • a Canadian Coast Guard-approved lifejacket or personal floatation device (PFD) for each person
  • a whistle (all PFDs should have one attached)
  • 15 metres of buoyant throw line (exception: if everyone on board is wearing a PFD or lifejacket, then a throw line is not required)
  • a watertight flashlight (if you’ll be paddling before sunrise or after sunset)
  • The final piece of equipment that is not required by law but highly recommended is a leash. A leash should be worn at all times and can save your life. Even a light breeze can quickly carry your board out of your reach if you fall off.

Rental rates for partial days average between $25 and $35 per board for 2 to 4 hours. Expect to pay between $40 and $65 for a full day. Some outfitters offer reduced daily rates for weekend and week-long rentals. Remember that rates will vary with the type of board and geographic location.

Renting is a great way to explore Ontario’s waterways without having to deal with the storage and transportation hassles of board ownership. If you've heard about some of the amazing paddling routes in the province but don't have a paddleboard at the moment or just want to try out something new and see how it suits you, there are plenty of friendly outfitters who can help. Just check out the list below.
