Thanks for getting in touch! Yes, you can rent a kayak at our hourly rate, and you are free to choose any time duration and destination that you would like. You are not required to sign up for one of our predefined tours. For safety purposes, we do send a guide out with every rental, and our guides can also share stories about the local landscape and history.
