Astoria Scuba and Kayak has more sit-on-top kayaks to rent and sell than any Oregon coastal location. The advantage of renting a Sit-On-Top is that little training is required, versus the two day classes of Eskimo roles, bale outs, or getting in and pumping out the kayak like more conventional sit-ins. We are authorized dealers for Cobra and Malibu Kayaks. Check out their websites for more details and specifications.
Catch the kayak fishing fever with Cobra’s extensive range of specialty fishing kayaks. Fishing is now a major activity for both casual and serious angler. Kayak fishing has many advantages over traditional day-boating. (not including the high price for petrol for a day on the water!). A fishing kayak can easily be handled by one person and can be on the water quickly and easily. It gets in and out of tight fishing spots easily. You can’t beat the rush of being towed by a 20lb Chinook, Or Columbia River Sturgeon!!
- Cobra Kayaks have been designed for fishing and diving. This means they have unparalleled stability with “stealth” hulls that reduce water noise that spook fish. The large flat utility deck areas are a key feature of Cobra kayaks allowing a huge range of options for deck and hatch lay-out.
The Cobra fishing flagship is the Marauder which features a built-in locker and bait-board and a large storage well, combined with fitted hatches and rod-holders.
The Pro-Fisherman is the best long distance fishing kayak on the market with a low profile and built in side pockets.
The Cobra Navigator, Fish N Dive and Marauder fishing kayaks have specially modified scuppers and are transducer ready.
Our Rates are reasonably priced per person:
$25.00 for a 6 hours (half day)
