Choose from Three Options
- $62 for a three-hour standup paddleboard rental for two ($110 value)
- $40 for a three-hour kayak rental for two, including two single kayak rentals ($70 value)
- $45 for a three-hour kayak rental for four, including two tandem kayaks ($80 value)
There’s no need to load rented kayaks into a car as they can be launched right from the shore at Kelly Park. Heading south, you may come across canals that allow for protected viewing of dolphins and manatees. Heading north, you’ll paddle through the Barge Canal, which connects to the Indian River and Sykes Creek. Along the way, you’ll find many islands to explore.
Calema Windsurfing and Watersports
Every instructor at Calema Windsurfing and Watersports knows his or her stuff. Each one has personally trained with Calema's owner Tinho Dornellas, a master instructor who also designed the first surf ski with John Byde, whose father later patented it. Dornellas knows water sports like the back of his hands—which he probably used to make whatever windsurfing board he's currently riding. They also teach Windsurfing, Sailing, Kayaking and Stand-up Paddling.
Dornellas started using fiberglass composites to shape his own kayaks, surfboards, and windsurfing boards in the 1970s, and he and his wife Susie (a former windsurfing student) have kept up with advances in the field. Today, for instance, the shop also rents standup paddleboards, riding a resurgence in the Hawaiian sport.
Calema is ideally located for just about any aquatic activity, except maybe kraken-fishing. The Atlantic Ocean stretches to the east, and the Banana River flows right by the store, letting kayaks and standup paddle boards float straight into waters shard by dolphins and manatees. Beyond gear rentals and instruction, Calema also hosts windsurfing races.
