Check-Out Procedures 

Before leaving AK Paddlesports, you are responsible for inspecting all equipment carefully and to bring any missing or damaged equipment to a staff member's attention. Make sure any discrepancies are noted on the rental agreement. Failure to note any discrepancies may result in a fee for damaged or missing equipment. If needed, please ask a staff member for assistance with inspection and/or instructions on how to properly set-up the equipment. 

It takes aproxx. 30 minutes to check out equipment. Consider this as you make your reservation.


Cleaning Fees

Rental fees do not cover any portion of cleaning fees. Any watercraft not returned in a reasonable condition will be subject to a cleaning fee up to half the rental cost.  This will be charged to the credit card on file.

Equipment Damage

Rental Fees do not cover any portion of damages to equipment. Any damage to equipment interfering with subsequent rentals or reservations will be charged the entire cost of the subsequent rental in addition to all equipment repair and/or replacement costs.

Late Fees

Late fees are assessed at 1.5 times the daily rate for each day the equipment is not returned.  This is strictly enforced as it jeopardizes another person's trip. Any late equipment affecting another person's rental will be charged the entire cost of the other rental.
