  • These folks are so nice. The equipment is basic and easy to use. Did I mention they are so nice? We live in Portland and have our own paddle boards, but we didn’t want to bring them. Sure we could have found something pricier and fancier, but after calling around to all the shops, Emily and her staff were by far the nicest. I would rather rent something that comes with good vibes than rent from a place that suggested I should just buy and new board or paddle while I was in town. Go there. Get it. BONUS!!! It is flipping beautiful!
  • My husband and I and my daughter rented a double kayak and a stand up last weekend on Saturday. I would like to compliment the staff in there Professional Service and help in making sure we had a good time. They even helped us get a good deal! Your kindness is greatly appreciated! It was one of the best kayaking experiences we ever have had.
