At NESS, we want to get as many people out on the water as possible and realize that sometimes you just want to take advantage of the beautiful weather and explore the local waters with your friends and family. That’s why we offer rental options for exploring the Stonington area by kayak, stand up paddleboard (SUP), and sailboat. 

A few things to note before you rent a boat from NESS: 

Kayaks & SUP: NESS will not rent a kayak or SUP to a person going out alone on the water. The rental must be done with at least two people for safety.

Sailboats: A check-out sail with a NESS Sailing Instructor is required before renting a sailboat at NESS. The sailor must be able to rig, leave the mooring, sail, put the boat back on the mooring, and de-rig on their own. The check-out sail is $50.

Contact us at 860-535-9362 or adventure@nessf.org with questions or for more information.
