Highly recommend Desert River outfitter's in Bullhead for renting Kayaks.
They have Ocean Kayak, Scuper-Pro's, SI 149 or Jackson Day-tripper's for $65 for 2 days delivered, if you mention your a member of a meet-up group, so you can pick and return them at Willow Beach. (bring our own paddle and a spare, they're paddles were heavy and too durable built)
They also have a great map showing all the attractions they can e-mail you.
