The charm of the 30A area is best experienced from a kayak, bike, or paddleboard. If you’re like many visitors, however, you lack the gear needed for these local pursuits. Not a problem — you can find everything you need for the perfect outdoorsy day at Yellowfin Ocean Sports.
Conveniently situated near Publix and a few favorite local restaurants, Yellowfin Ocean Sports is close enough to Grayton Beach and Deer Lake State Parks to make transporting recreational gear a cinch. The store even supplies roof pads and tie-down straps to make the process easier. This approach allows for the most flexible experience possible. That being said, there’s also the option to arrange for delivery. Keep in mind that all deliveries are handled through Yellowfin’s Seagrove location.
A variety of recreational essentials can be found at Yellowfin Ocean Sports. Kayaks are always in strong demand, with several Hobie solo and tandem models available. The shop also carries Hobie kayaks specifically designed for fishing. Other visitors may prefer to rent stand-up paddleboards.
While most people arrive with the intention of renting, kayaks and paddleboards can also be purchased, with an impressive selection of both new and used models available.
Anglers appreciate the vast selection of bait and tackle available at Yellowfin Ocean Sports. The Watercolor Way location also provides easy access to licenses, making it a great destination for vacationers intent on fishing in Florida.
If you prefer to remain on land as you explore the best of Grayton Beach, don’t worry — despite its name, Yellowfin Ocean Sports isn’t exclusively committed to water-based activities. The rental shop also provides cruise bikes. While these single-speed bikes are not ideal for hardcore journeys, they allow for easygoing cruising along the beach. The store even provides locks and baskets free of charge.
Yellowfin Ocean Sports does not currently book charters directly, but the store is still a great resource if you need a little guidance for your outdoor adventures. The experts at this store are thoroughly familiar with all of the local charter companies and captains. They’re happy to chat about wishes for your upcoming expedition.
