Complimentary Recreational Watersports Activities/Equipment:

Jet Skis Seadoo GTI 130 – 2013

For those thrill-seekers onboard, take a ride with our 1503 SCIC Rotax 4-Tec engine Jet Ski.
 
Zip over the ocean on the smooth-operating Sea-Doo GTI 130, fun and stylish this Jet Ski is definitely designed to help you look good out on the water. Recognized for its performance, the watercraft boasts a 4-TEC engine producing 130 horsepower with a top speed of close to 55 miles per hour—enough power to tow skiers and wakeboarders and playfully carve the water. An electronic throttle presents Touring mode for everyday riding, Sport mode for higher performance and ECO mode for fuel efficiency. Another throttle feature: Cruise control. Set it and go, fully gripping the handlebars without worrying about applying steady pressure on the lever. A no-wake setting makes navigating no-wake zones a no-brainer, while the Intelligent Brake & Reverse, or iBR, system stops the craft in almost half the distance normally required and offers the ability to start from neutral, making docking easier—assuming you will ever want to come off the machine’s bolstered saddle and call it a day. The Sea-Doo GTI 130 seats three and has a load capacity of 600 lbs.

Ocean Kayak Malibu Two XL Tandem Kayak

Explore new waters in tandem on one of our Ocean Kayak Malibu XL Tandem Kayaks.

From the name literally synonymous with ocean kayaking comes the Ocean Kayak Malibu Two XL Tandem Kayak, one of the most popular choices for outdoors enthusiasts. Relatively long at 13’4— and boasting a max capacity of between 450 and 500 lbs., the craft is ideal for larger paddlers and can be used solo or tandem. Approach not only smooth waters but also swells and chop with confidence—the Malibu Two XL is remarkably stable, handling varying water conditions with ease, tracking well and taking little muscle to paddle. Rig the versatile kayak for fishing or simply stow munchies and sunscreen in its roomy cockpit, lean back in seats equipped with Comfort Plus seatbacks and enjoy leisurely sightseeing.

Ocean Kayak Caper Classic Kayak 2015

Explore crystal clear waters at your own pace on our single-person Ocean Kayak Caper Classic 2015.

Compact at 11’ feet long and lightweight at 47 lbs., the Ocean Kayak Caper Classic Single Kayak is easy to maneuver, both on the water and on shore. While conveniently sized, the kayak is also surprisingly roomy, with an impressive weight capacity of between 275 and 325 lbs. A Comfort Plus seatback lets you paddle or float contentedly for hours, and surely you will be keen to do so thanks to the Classic’s stability, eagerness to take on swells and chop, capacious cockpit, good tracking and minimal hull slap.
