We went Saturday morning around 9:00 a.m. and they were ready to help us. We just watched a basic video of two minutes, grabbed our vest and go in the kayaks. We were a group of six, four adults, one teenager and one child. If you can swim you can go in the kayak. We had great time for just... More

My three girls and I decided to end our summer vacation with a short kayaking trip. Of the 4 of us, only one of my daughters had been before. I thought this place was a little expensive. $10 per person per hour, double or single kayak. For the price, I would have hoped for more organisation and instruction on how... More

This company works efficiently; all staff are knowledgeable, pleasant, and great with first-timers. A quick, and very informative video goes through the steps to get in the water. The explanations were great & we enjoyed the ability to pay upon return, as well as pro-rated for the time we were out on the water. Being new to the area, I... More

The friendliness and greeting of the employees could be improved. They seemed move about efficiency - get us in get us out with minimum interaction. The canals were intriguing with all of the yachts and boats docked along the way. Their map of the area had a wildlife refuge on it but it was disappointing when I got there. Concrete... More

It was a little hard to find, but the staff got us set up with a kayak and some life jackets (and a map of the water) very quickly. The equipment we used was in good shape. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would do this again!

My nephew and I wanted to go out on the water for the afternoon. We were one of the first people to show up to go out. There was one woman 'working' there who was distracted by shiny objects and not really paying attention to customers or working. She pointed to a kayak we could take out and told us... More

Where could you possibly have more fun renting kayaks and paddle boards than Naples, Long Beach, California that is. The staff is friendly, safety minded, and helpful. The bay and canals are fantastic scenery to view while you are exercising and enjoying your day. I'm 67 years old and I wasn't sure I could stay on a paddle board, but... More

This is a great and inexpensive way to try stand up paddle boards and kayaking. You can paddle along in the bay or explore the canals of Naples. Don't eat at the snack shack, instead stroll up to second street and eat. You can't beat the location and price.

Loved it! The staff was nice and very efficient in moving a lot of people and getting them on the water. They were organized, and you felt like they were paying attention to you, even though we arrived just as a group of about 20 showed up. I felt they cared about safety, you have to be able to swim,...

My wife and I went kayaking with two of our friends while we we were out there on vacation. Amazing! The staff was friendly and the scenery was beautiful. It was my first time kayaking and I fell in love with it,. We will go back there again on our next trip to California.
