We have lots of options to choose from but the supplies of these items are limited, so we suggest making reservations by clicking on the book now button. If you are joining one of our multi-day guided trips most of the gear you need is typically included in the cost of the trip!

Wetsuits & Drysuits

We have a large supply of rental wetsuits and a more limited supply of drysuits. These two types of apparel work differently to keep you warm. Wetsuits are designed to warm up a thin layer of water between the neoprene and your skin. Drysuits keep you dry and maintain a pocket of warm air between you and the shell of the suit.

The NRS Explorer drysuits we rent are “semi-dry” because they have neoprene neck gaskets that may allow in a small amount of water if you are submerged. These drysuits are good for most kayaking purposes, but they are not suitable for diving.

For information on drysuit sizing visit this page.
