Is learning to kayak on your bucket list? If it isn’t, it should be! Kayaking is a great way to tour a new area or relax while you immerse yourself in Florida’s rich marine life.

We offer kayak classes for people of all ages and ability levels. There’s no need to be in great shape to learn how to kayak; it can be as laid-back or adventurous as you want.

Call today to ask about our instructional classes.


At Ride and Paddle, we’re more than just a kayak rental facility. Wherever you’re staying in the Sarasota area, there’s plenty to explore by bike, scooter, or paddle board. And if you’re more of the “lounge on the beach” type, we have plenty of beach rentals so you can siesta in the shade when you visit Siesta Key, Lido Key, or other surrounding areas.



At Ride and Paddle by Siesta Sports Rentals, we have everything you need to enjoy a day on the water. In addition to single kayak rentals and tandem kayaks, we offer paddle boards, scooter cars, beach cruisers, beach chairs, and umbrella rentals, and pretty much anything else you need to enjoy a day on the beach near your condo in Siesta Key or explore a little bit further out at Turtle Beach.

We serve downtown Sarasota and surrounding areas as well as Lido Key, Longboat Key, and plenty of other nearby areas! For additional pricing on kayak rentals, kayak tours, or delivery fees to areas outside of Siesta Key, call us at (941) 346-1797 or contact us online!
