– Sun Protection: Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses (with strap) . We sell them!

What is included in the trip price?
For Lake trips, the pricing includes your boat, PFD(personal flotation device), paddle.
Can I bring my dog?
If your dog is extremely well trained and well behaved around all people and all other dogs, they are welcome at Morganton Point Recreation Area but are Not allowed on the Rental Kayaks, SUP Boards or other Rental Gear or on the Beach Area. They must be leashed at all times and please pick up after them.
There is a Doggie Day Care located in Blue Ridge GA who can watch your doggies for a fee. Please contact them directly.
What are your age restrictions for children?
All participants must be 5 years old or older. If your child is 5 – 12 years old, they can join you on your trip in a tandem kayak.
If your child is 13 years old or older (or over 120lbs) they are welcome to man their own craft on the Lake. (Some shorter children will have a hard time managing a SUP on their own regardless of age/weight, fyi).
I have never been kayaking/SUPing before, is this beginner friendly?
Yes! The Lake we run our trips on is very calm, gentle, and great for beginners. Most people find it easy to get the hang of within a few minutes. Our crew are a great source of tips for first timers including how to keep a kayak going straight and how to use a SUP paddle, and gratuities are at your descretion for our crew members.
Where do I go to start my trip?
Walkups are welcome at our Morganton Point Beach Recreation Area location, but if you are already booked on a specific full day or half trip, you will meet at LBO. If you have any confusion as to where to go, please give us a call at 706-900-4004, so we can ensure you have the best day possible.
Are your trips guided?
No, all of our Lake Rental trips are unguided to allow our guests to enjoy the Lake at their own speed. All of Our Fly Fishing Trips are Guided, though.
Do you have any discounts?
Yes! Discounts are only available if the discount is mentioned while making a reservation. Walkups are not eligible for discounts. Groups of 8 or more, military, should all ask!
24 Hour Rentals FAQ:
What is entailed in renting 24 hour equipment?
You will fill out the waiver that every one of our guests fills out as well as a 24 hour rental agreement. On this agreement, a credit card number is held so if you damage, loose a paddle or run away with our equipment and never return, we have a way to charge you for it. This number is destroyed upon the safe return of the equipment.
When can I return equipment?
All pricing is for 24 hours from the time you pick it up. If you are late, you might be charged a late fee. You can return gear early while we’re open, but no after hours drop offs please. If we are picking up equiptment it must be returned same location that is was dropped off.
Will you help me load the equipment into/onto my vehicle?
We can assist with loading or you may prefer to have it delvered for addtional fee.
If LBO sees your vehicle and does not think you can safely transport our equipment, we may ask you to bring a different vehicle. We also ask that you do not use ratcheting straps, as they can break our boats.
I cannot load the rental gear myself, will you transport it for me?
If you are unable to load the gear yourself, please consider having it delvered to your Lake Blue Ridge Rental. We can deliver 24 hour rental equipment for additional fee.
Where do I go to pick up/drop off 24 hour rentals?
All 24 hour rental equipment must be picked up AND dropped back off at our 26 ByPass Road location. We do offer Drop Off and Pick Up for Additional Fee. Please call for Delivery Rates.
