A1A Beach Rentals is a leading provider of beach and water sports rental equipment serving the greater Cocoa Beach area, including Melbourne and Orlando. In addition to our full beach compliment of chairs, lounges, umbrellas, and carts, we also provide rental equipment and services for surfing and paddle board lessons, kayak trips, flats fishing, surf fishing, and bike rentals. Boat rentals and charter fishing are services where we have partnered with the leading companies in the area. We've done the work making sure these providers are reputable, friendly, and affordable, and we are happy to direct you to the best providers.
Our delivery and service area includes all of Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral, Merritt Island, Satellite Beach, Indialantic, Indian Harbor Beach, Melbourne Beach and Orlando. We also work with cruise passengers seeking bike rentals and watersports activities during their shore excursion time when visiting Port Canaveral. Taxi service runs to and from our location all day, every day cruise ships are docked in Port Canaveral.
Our surfboard rental inventory includes dozens of soft trainer surfboards, fun shapes, hard and soft longboards up to 11 feet, and performance surfboards from 5 to 8 feet. If you need surfboards delivered there is no better place to call than us! We provide free delivery on any surfboard order over $50 and that includes pick-up as well. Longboards can be quite a challenge to transport and you should not have to figure out how to get a 8' or 10' board into your vehicle. The surf in our area is very consistent in the 2 to 3 foot level year round. If you are here for a week, you will most likely encounter some good surf conditions, so consider renting a board from us for the week and have it at the ready. If you would like a surfing lesson, we can help there too. In fact, our instructor can meet you at your beach and provide a very informative 1 to 3 hour surf lesson for one or for your whole family. Our lessons and classes set you up for a full day of surfing, and you'll have the board rental for 24 hours. This is a great option to dramatically shorten the learning curve when you considering surfing for the first time, or the first time surfing in a long time.
Our stand-up paddleboards(sups) include soft-topped flat water boards for use on our inland waterways and make a great option for viewing wildlife such as manatees and dolphins, and for doing yoga, a growing group paddle board activity. We also have several performance paddleboards suited for use in the ocean and surfing.
Our kayak services include rental with delivery, guided nature tours, semi-guided fishing trips, beach kayak fishing, rocket launch viewing, and custom kayak trips. In the fall and winter, manatee tours are very common. We frequently guide guests to dozens of manatees during a 2 hour trip, and often see bottlenose dolphins, shore birds, and other wildlife. Popular kayak put-in spots include the Thousand Islands chain in Cocoa Beach, Ulumay Wildlife Refuge on Merritt Island, Pine Island Nature area on Merritt Island, Kars Park (Cars Park) on the shore of the No-Motor-Zone on Merritt Island, Manatee Cove on Merritt Island, Banana River Park and Manatee Park in Cape Canaveral, Kiwanis Island in Merritt Island, and several roadside launches throughout the area. If you are here on a cruise, we can take you on a kayak trip and save you significant money. Plus, we can provide a private, custom itinerary for you to do and see what you want, such as up close manatee viewing, dolphin feedings, bird watching, backcountry mangrove island tours and more. Give us call with your idea or we'll come up with a suggestion or two for you. We also have inshore charter fishing by flats boat and kayak. With very affordable rates, we can get you on the fish with either a guided or self-guided kayak trip and have you fishing for redfish, seatrout, snook and more in no time. We have several kayaks fully outfitted for fishing and are ready to get you on the fish.
Bike rentals are a great way to get around town and our beach cruisers are equally adept at riding on the beach as they are on the road. There is no need to drive around and search for bikes. We'll be happy to deliver all the bikes you need, and we can provide baskets and locks as well. We also have infant bike seats and toddler trailers too.
