Our Policies:  When booking with Talaysay we designate staff, equipment, time and space for your rental and adventure.  We are fully invested and committed to you and your group.  As such, with Groups we require a 7 day notice for any group rental cancellation.  An admin fee of 25% will be administered.  For all other kayak rentals we require 72 hours notice.  By chance you need to cancel as life happens, admin fees of 25% will be administered for your cancellation and anything after 24 hours notice will be full charge.  Weather: On the West Coast we prepare for the weather and cancellations will be accepted in extreme weather only.  We encourage all of our guests to prepare for the weather and dress and plan accordingly.

Safety is Best:  All participations carefully review and sign waivers.  Adult guardians are required to sign for youth 18 and under.  Children/youth must be accompanied by an adult.  Your wellbeing is central in our operation. If wind is a considerable factor, our staff reserve the right to delay or cancel your rental for your safety.  It rarely has happened but we have had to shut down the Paddle Centre for a couple hours in the day from time to time.  You will not be charged any fees as a result.

What to expect:  Upon every kayak, canoe or paddle board rental we provide a safety orientation, self rescue demo and paddle technique demo.  It only takes a few minutes.  Arrive early and we can get you and your party on the water asap.  Your rental includes all safety gear and a map.

We are booked solid throughout the summer and invite you to book in advance.
