The Best Kayak Dock Solutions For Public Recreational Areas
Parks and recreation facilities have the broadest spectrum of docking needs of anyone. Some sites need simple floating dock access for swimming. Some areas need mooring for kayaks, canoes and small fishing boats. Some require fishing piers or access to nature preserves. Many need to provide safe access for users with disabilities.
Even more diverse than the docking needs for parks and recreation managers are their different and challenging water sites they work with. Some parks have deep water, some have shallow water, some have times when there is no water at all. Your floating watercraft management system will have to accommodate all these conditions, and more.
These floating kayak docks can either be integrated with an existing traditional dock, or sit as a stand-alone launch.

Kayak Dock Frequently Asked Questions
How do you get the kayak on and off the floating launch?
The Jet Dock is a safe, convenient drive-on floating docking system. The process is similar to driving your kayak onto a bank.
To get your kayak on top of our floating dock:
- Approach the dock at speed and allow your momentum to begin the ride-up process. At this point, the dock is "cradling" the kayak.
- Firmly paddle on the rest of the way up. After a few tries, you will know exactly how much thrust you need to get the kayak on the top of the dock.
Remember that practice makes perfect and after a few tries, "parking" your kayak on our waterfront driveway will be as easy as parking your car in the driveway of your house.
To get the kayak off the floating dock:
- Simply move your kayak towards the end of the floating dock, with approximately the back 1/3rd of your boat overhanging the rear of the deck.
- From here, you can board your craft at any time. With a backward rocking motion, the kayak will scoot into the water.
Does the floating kayak dock come in any color other than black? Because your cubes are black, doesn't the dock get hot being in the sun all day?
Black is the only color our drive-on docks come in. We have chosen to keep the cube its natural color as other colors historically exhibit less outdoor durability. Technically speaking, the carbon pigment in the polymer yields a black color. It provides the highest level of durability, strength, and flexibility. It is naturally UV stable and requires no "additives" or inhibitors. By keeping with the proven performance of black high-density polyethylene (HDPE), Jet Dock is able to give a lifetime warranty on the cube, something not found with other products. Also, consider these aesthetic advantages:
- Our black cube makes the stains from dirt, grime and marine growth less conspicuous than on white or light-colored floats
- The low-angle reflection of water is "dark" or "black"; therefore, the Jet Dock blends in attractively with the "seascape"
- The black color of the cube is "classic" and will not clash with your kayak or surroundings; old modules will not appear "faded" next to new modules. While the dock can get hot being in the sun all day, keep in mind the majority of it is covered by the shadow of your kayak, making much of the dock cool to the touch. Besides, a white sand beach or a traditional wood deck will burn your feet on a hot day. Ask yourself the following questions in regards to how hot the Jet Dock potentially gets: a) "Am I using the dock for sunbathing purposes or am I using it to preserve my watercraft investment? After all, isn't my drive-on dry-docking system a kayak lift? b) "When I'm kayaking, shouldn't I be wearing proper footgear?" and lastly, c) "Couldn't I just throw some outdoor carpet on the dock if it were really that big an issue?". FYI-regarding the latter, Jet Dock does offer new light-colored beige modules for use as a floating walkway, kayak dock, swim platform or sundeck.
Can I leave the Jet Dock floating dock in the water all year (warm weather sites)?
The floating dock can be left in all year (yes, even in saltwater; we have systems that have been in place for nearly ten years and have never been put on land for dry storage).
In some warm-weather sites, where the water is completely drained (typically inland lakes or reservoirs at the end of the kayaking season), you may need to contact a Jet Dock customer support representative for assistance in getting your system up and running the next season.
Can I leave the kayak dock in all year (cold weather sites)?
In cold weather sites (where the water freezes regularly during winter), the floating dock can be left in all year. When the water freezes, the floating dock rises up above the ice and rests on top.
Protocol for winterizing the Jet Dock is simple:
- Move the craft to its dry storage location during the off-season
- Remove the mooring poles.
By leaving the dock in all year, ice and cold water will act as a natural "sanitizer" by helping to keep the dock clean.
How does ice impact kayak docks?
The central issue when it comes to ice and its impact on the floating dock is water flow. If there is a heavy current or moving water/ice, the key question to ask yourself is,
"When the ice thaws out, does it just dissipate back into the water level or are there large blocks of heavy flow ice moving around that would severely damage stationary docks?"
If you answer "yes" to the first part of the question, you can leave our dock in all year. We have a number of customers who can attest to this.
If you answer "yes" to the second part of the question, then your next move is as obvious as the ice will tear out and wash away any structure.
For floating docks, if the water does freeze and you leave it in, you will have to remove one section of cubes that resides on the underside of the dock.
How do floating docks withstand high winds, wakes/waves and water surges? Are there any special precautions I should take regarding the floating kayak lift?
When it comes to high winds, again, we have a number of testimonials from customers who can tell their tale about how the floating kayak lift by Jet Dock was the only item that survived the latest hurricane or 100 mph winds.
Because the floating dock is modular, it rolls with waves/water as Mother Nature imparts her wrath on the dock. Water surges can be handled with our tide manager system. Should the water rise above normal levels, simply let out enough of the line that is being used to secure the Jet Dock and allow it to be less restricted to its mooring location.
In regards to wave action, the optimal situation is for the dock to be in a protected area with little or no wave action. If this is not possible, then we suggest the dock at the very least be in an area where the waves are 2' or less. Common sense suggests that if you are currently keeping the watercraft in the water, the Jet Dock can be located there as well.
The Jet Dock is ideally suited where a normal dock or dry-docking procedures are difficult or unsafe. Where water currents might cause the watercraft to bump up against the seawall or existing dock or mechanical lift, the Jet Dock drive-on docking system allows a safe, protected approach, contact and dry-docking procedure.
How long does it take for the floating dock to be shipped/installed once the order is placed?
We deliver and install floating docks promptly, but the exact timing depends on the location of your dock site, the type of dock and will be agreed with you at the time you place your order.
Physical characteristics of the Jet Dock cube. Weight? Size? Buoyancy? Foam-filled? Puncture proof?
Each cube weighs approximately 14 pounds (6.4 kgs), has a surface area of 20" x 20" (500mm x 500mm) and has over 200 pounds (90 kgs) of buoyancy. The cube is air filled (basically a rigid, hollow compartment) with a wall thickness of approximately ¼" (6mm).
While the likelihood of a cube being punctured or damaged is virtually non-existent, should this happen and fall within the guidelines of our warranty, we will replace the cube at no cost.
Can floating docks be towed to another location? Are they easy to take out of the water if I need to?
Floating docks can easily be moved to another location, either by towing it with your PWC or kayak, loading it up on your kayak trailer, or by disassembling it and having it moved to its new location.
The dock can be removed from the water in the same manner your kayak is removed (tow it to a kayak ramp and pull it on top of your trailer) or by disassembling it either in water or land and moving it to its storage location. The dock can be left outside if needed.
