Located on famous Inspiration Wharf, Atlantic Outfitters is the town’s largest renter of kayaks and paddleboards. They have a wide range of large and small kayaks along with different sized paddleboards to fit almost everyone’s needs. They also have two row boats available, all for rental 7 days a week. Their row boats can easily handle three adults, or two adults and three children. The boats can also accommodate two sets of oars, so two people can row. Row boats also have two rod holders in the stern that can be used to troll for fish while you row or for an umbrella to provide some shade.
