A1A Beach Rentals Semi-Regulare Happenings

Time to Save the Indian River Lagoon

I am very optimistic about the future of our lagoon. Not because of the state its in now, but what is happening at all levels of our government and citizenry. As a member of the Citizen Oversight Committee allocating funds to restoration efforts, I am asked daily what is happening, why, and what needs to be done. Below is an adaptation of the answer to these questions by our good friends at the Brevard Zoo that I think clearly explains the issue to all readers:

Why focus on the Indian River Lagoon?

Thousand Islands Kayaking at your pace

A1A Beach Rentals and Outdoor Center is the only self-guided kayak outfitter servicing the famed Thousand Islands Marine Sanctuary in Cocoa Beach, Fl.  For the kayaker that doesn't require a guide, our services are very flexible, affording you the option of launch time, duration, and travel routes through the pristing mangrove habitats as you search for manatees, dolphins, sea eagles and much more.  Starting at $35, its a super affordable way to get out and explore also.  Give us a call to learn more and book a kayak outing when you are in Cocoa Beach, or visiting the area on a day pass from one of the cruise ships in Port Canaveral.  We'll take great care of you, and you'll have a trip to remember forever.  Thanks.  321-505-7455

Surf Lessons from Memorial Day Weekend

Lots of great lesson pics from this past weekend.  We'll come to your resort in Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach and bring the boards with us.  From 1 to 20, we'll help you or your group learn to surf and have a blast doing it.  321-505-7455 to book lessons anytime.

Summertime Boat Rentals

Although we are known most for our beach, bike, and paddle rental programs and tours in Cocoa Beach, what many may be surprised to learn is that we also offer a variety of boat rentals and guided fishing options as well.

Our boat rental program includes 18 foot center console runabouts, 21 foot pontoon boats that seat up to 10, 22 foot pontoons that seat up to 12, speedy deck boats that combine performance and luxury.  All are marina ready, on the bay and convenient to get to, just 5-10 minutes from anywhere in Cocoa Beach.

Thousand Islands Clean up this weekend

We're providing free kayaks to anyone wanting to participate in the Thousand Islands Marine Sanctuary clean up this weekend.  Please call us to make arrangements at 321-505-7455.  We'll deliver the kayaks to the launch area where the group is meeting.  From there, you'll go with the group via kayak to area mangrove islands to conduct annual trash pick-up.  We hope you'll join in the group.  Its such a great way to get out, and help out!  Thanks

Surfing Lessons in Cocoa Beach

Since 2009, we have been providing high quality surf lessons in Cocoa Beach And Cape Canaveral at the area resorts and hotels where our guests are staying.  All of our instructors in 2016 have at least 10 years of professional lesson experience, having worked for us, as well as other surfing outfits in the area and elsewhere over the years.  

When calling about lessons, we find out where you're at and what size you or the students are so that we can properly fit a board to each student.

Choosing an Outdoor Corporate Event in Central Florida

Central Florida a premiere location for corporate events, with its abundance of business and leisure event opportunities.  Unfortunately, many people have come to associate corporate events with boring speakers and long days, preferring to carry out a regular work day rather than attending. When it comes down to it, though, corporate events are supposed to be fun and entertaining, getting your employees pumped up for their jobs and allowing them to bring new skills to the table. That’s why selecting the perfect entertainment is crucial to the success of your corporate event.

A1A Management Secures Prestigious Vibe Kayak Dealer Contract

Vibe Kayaks are recognized as a kayak fisher's "best value" with their complete kayak fishing systems that require no upgrades or modifications to compete with higher-priced models often 2-3 times as costly.  After taking the kayak industry by storm with these competitively priced kayak fishing platforms beginning in 2012, Vibe has recently awarded a limited number of dealer accounts at strategic locales nationally.  We are very pleased to announce that we have been awarded the first and primary central Florida dealer agreement where we will inventory, sell, and service all Vibe kayak models.

New kayak and Paddleboard launch site approved!

We have finally secured kayak and paddleboard launch rights with the city of Cape Canaveral.  This means we'll be able to set up during the day at Banana River Park and rent equipment on site!  This is a very exciting time at our shop and we can't wait to see you at our new launch area for kayak and SUP rentals, tours, and lessons.  

By the way, this is also the best place for manatees hands down anywhere in the area, dolphins too!  And, it is easily the closest waterfront launch area to Port Canaveral so cruise visitors need not travel far or pay outrageous shore excursion fees through the cruise ships.  So excited!!!

Summer Surf Lesson Season is here!

Surf lesson season is here!

For those seeking a surf lesson in Cocoa Beach and Port Canaveral area there are generally two kinds to consider; one is the high-volume mega schools and the other is the private lesson.  Both have advantages and disadvantages and I will highlight these below.

High volume classes are run by the big retail surf giants.  They are well equipped, well staffed and well run operations but volume is key for their success and transitioning these lessons to in-store retail sales is relatively obvious.
