Welcome to Pinky’s Kayak Rentals!


We are officially open for the 2015 season.  We hope you all had a safe and peaceful winter.  Come on out and enjoy some fresh air and fun on the bayou.  Choose from our self guided kayak trips, or rent by the hour.  Feel like trying something new?  Try some paddle boarding on the lake for a great work out and a natural tan.

At Pinky’s Kayak Rentals we rent kayaks and stand up paddleboards.

our motto

“The more people we get to see the bayou, the more likely it will be preserved!”



  We are here to serve the Galveston Bay area and help promote a reconnection with nature.  Folks visiting the greater Houston area are encouraged to take a journey with us.  We hope that people who live in the area, as well as our visitors, come and see this preserved wonder of nature.
  Many overlook the fact that you don’t have to travel that far from downtown Houston to see the magnificent wonders of this American treasure.  We are lucky enough to still have this precious ecosystem in our own backyard.pinky pelican  Along Armand Bayou you will see a lot of diversity and beautiful nature.  You’ll see everything from plants, reptiles, to mammals that cross the channels.  You will also notice a large variety of birds that surround the bayous and nearby parks.  In our nature section you will see a representation of what you might see on a typical day up and down Armand Bayou in the form of a photo slideshow.  Thanks to all the folks who have contributed their photos to this great collection of Armand Bayou.  Check out our nature photo section here, and you can actually learn about some of the nature on the bayou here!

  When you think of kayaking Houston we want you to remember the bayous and nature.  Houston has a variety of things that make it unique and we’d like to think our bayous are a pretty great addition to our cities.  We have a shuttle service that will drop you deep in the bayou at 5 different locations, and allow you to paddle back to civilization.  It is definitely an adventure that you wouldn’t expect while your in such a large city.
  At Pinky’s Kayak Rentals we know that what you experience is important to you.  That makes it important to us. Please check our menu for what your interested in.  We have added all the information about our company on the website, so please check the menus for your personal choice of adventure. We are well known for including a free shuttle to one of five destinations.  For more information on our rates and prices click here

   There is so much to see and do in the Houston and Galveston Bay area, but this is definitely one adventure you don’t want to miss.

It is spring and that means it is just about time for some spring cleaning on the bayou. The Galveston Bay Foundation organizes Trash Bash every year in Armand Bayou and we love helping out by donating our fleet to the cause. This years Trash Bash will be on March 28th. You can find more information by checking out their website or liking their page to see all the things they do to help the bay area. They are no stranger to hard work and dedication, and we have always enjoyed participating. Spring is also the time to start planning for those beautiful Texas days in the outdoors. You can find some of their suggestions below. ... See MoreSee Less

The sun is almost here and just in time for spring break! If you are staying close to home, take your family to one or more of our many wonderful local nature centers, preserves, state and local parks, or wildlife refuges. Or, when was the last time you took your kids fishing? We know some spots! Even if you don’t have younger ones in the house, head outside yourself!
