A1A Beach Rentals Semi-Regulare Happenings

Cocoa Beach Spring Break 2014

Spring break 2014 is here.  For all your beach, bike and paddle sports gear, please consider A1A Beach Rentals.  With the greatest selection, best customer service, equipment delivery, and most recreation options, you cannot go wrong by choosing us.  Not sure what to do, then give us a call or stop in for personalized suggestions for you and your group.

Recreation categories include biking, surfing, stand-up paddleboarding (sups), fishing, hiking, photography, jeep adventures, and combinations of these.

Inshore Guided Charter Fishing for cruise guests

A1A Beach Rentals is very proud to be adding guided inshore fishing to our list of cruise shore excursions.  This is a very exciting time to be visiting Port Canaveral by cruise ship.  We launched this service about 2 months ago in December 2013, and it has worked beautifully. 

Cruise ships visiting Port Canaveral are making full day stops now to accommodate trips to Orlando area theme parks and the Kennedy Space Center visitors complex.  Thanks to this, we in turn are able to offer services that weren't possible back when the cruise ships were only in port for a few hours.

Orlando Traffic Picking Up

The traffic coming in from Orlando is a very welcome treat for us.  More and more we are getting calls from visitors that want to spend a day at the beach while they are staying in Orlando and we are very happy to serve them.
 
If you are staying in the Orlando area and plan on visiting us beachside, please check out our map on our website.  We are right on A1A as Hwy 528 Beachline transitions into A1A at Port Canaveral.  There are no exits or on/off ramps.  You will see that 528 simply turns into A1A as you make your way into town.

Kayak maintenance and repair

With warmer weather it is time to start getting your kayak into shape for the summer season and if you live in east central Florida we can help you get your kayak into tip top shape.
 
A1A Beach Rentals is kayak dealer and we sell new and used kayaks.  We also repair kayaks and provide tools and accessories for custom installations such as hatches, seats, bungee straps, scupper holes, dry storage, rod holders and more.  We can also repair dings, cracks and other damage.
 
If you need help with solutions for transporting your kayak, we can help there too.

Spring Break 2013

Spring break is here and we couldn't be more excited.  Please give A1A Beach Rentals in Cocoa Beach a call for all your beach excursion and bike rental needs, including kayak trips, paddleboard trips, lessons, and guided outings.
 
If your in Orlando, you are only 1 hour away from the beach!  Stop by our shop and pick up all you need including beach chairs, resort style umbrellas, affordable surfboard rentals, beach games and more.  We are right on the way.  You have to drive right in front of our shop to get to the beach anyway, so you might as well stop in.

Cocoa Beach Kayak Manatee Watch Update

Of the many things we look forward to in fall, it is hard to beat the annual gatherings of manatees that congregate in warm waters once the water temps fall below 70 degrees.  Ok, so the mosquitoes are gone too, who wouldn't appreciate that.  But, this is the time of year when we can guide kayak guests to protected waters and interact with dozens of manatees in one trip.  With so few manatees in the wild it is extremely difficult to find and view manatees during the summer season.

Flats fishing is hot right now

Our kayak fishing guides and myself have been having tremendous success since Hurricane Sandy blew by last week.  The fish have been on a binge eating everything in sight, and many of our fishermen are reporting that redfish are darting after soft jerk baits and other mullet imitations from as far as 20 feet away.  Redfish from 20" to 40" are being caught as are seatrout from 14" to 25+".  And the catch numbers are fantastic.  Keep in mind all of our fishing is either by kayak, paddleboard, or wading, and our clients are catching an average of about 5 redfish and 2-3 trout in a 4hr period.

Where to eat in Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral

If you're visiting Cocoa Beach or live in the area, there are some must-eat places you should know about.Startingon the north end, actually in Port Canaveral, about a 5 minute drive from the central part of Cocoa Beach. Here, you will enjoy seafood and nightlife at any of the resaurants in the Cove. Grills, Fish Lips, and Milliken's Reef are all good choices. Milliken's reef may be perceived as higher end, but the food is worth it. Fish Lips and Grills have great food at good prices, and are very casual in nature.

Private Backwater Outings Available

Our local schools are starting this week, but that's no excuse for rest.  We are busy continuing to build our Port Canaveral cruise and shore excursion traffic.  We are also finishing this summer with some new stand up paddle board outings for the Girls Night Out Group of Brevard.  They found us on meetup.com and we can see this taking off for them and other outdoor/activity groups on meetup.com.  They have over 400 members and it shouldn't be a problem at all to schedule regular paddleboard trips, as well as kayak outings, surf lessons, bike tours, and more.

Stand Up Paddleboarding

A1A Beach Rentals Paddleboarding is taking off!
 
Since the development of our paddle board group with meetup.com, our paddleboard activity has exploded.  Interested paddleboarders, either experienced or beginner are encouraged to go to meetup.com and sign up for our meetup group named, Cocoa Beach Paddleboard Group.  The benefits of signing up include being noticed of scheduled paddleboard outings emailed direct to you, viewing of pictures and feedback from group participants on each group excursion, and socializing among the group, which is great for generating interest, and also making your voice heard on things like specific paddleboarding activities.
