Quarterly and Annual Membership

Are you an avid kayaker? Do you like the rush of beating into the wind on a sailboat? Is paddle boarding your thing?

No matter what small boat you prefer, Moss Bay has you covered. Either a quarterly or annual membership entitles you to use any of our equipment that you are trained and checked out to use. Members can enjoy the kayaks & paddle boards during hours 7 days a week (sailboats M-F). Kayaking and paddle boarding are unlimited! You can enjoy the sail boats one hour per day from June 1st – Sept 1st (M-F 330pm to 730pm during summer season, not available on weekends). It makes a lot of sense to kayak, paddle board or sail at Moss Bay instead of buying your own boating equipment and struggling with storage, maintenance, and resale. Benefits also include – bring a friend out in a double kayak for $5 and hour, take up to three friends sailing for free, 10% discounts on Take-Away rentals, 10% discount on lessons.

  • Quarterly Membership – $225
  • Annual Membership – $450
