You can rent a paddle board or kayak at this location, conveniently nestled by the calm waters of Mother’s Beach, about 15 minutes from LAX, in Marina Del Rey. If you’re feeling collegiate, take a lesson in a Whitehall Spirit Boat—a specially designed ocean-going shell. Your instructor will row behind you, helping you to perfect your technique. If you already know how to row, you can rent one, for yourself. Prices are reasonable, and as an added bonus, parking is free.
