Great place! Exactly what was described in their website and T.A. reviews. Knowledgeable and low-key staff. We were on our kayaks for 80 minutes and they charged us for one hour, at $10 pp. That's such a generous and refreshing change these days! Good equipment, safety is emphasized, fun course of canals to maneuver, map of where you are heading,... More

We rented two kayaks for a cruise around the island and in the canals with a family member who has her own kayak. They supplied paddles and life jackets and the kayaks were in good shape. The cost was $25 for two kayaks for 1.5 hours. This is a great place to see the nice areas of LA.

We have flown over 8 hours to kayak on vacation but have never done it in our own town. We finally got to kayak around the Long Beach Marina and we had a great time. We stayed out for almost two hours! Can you say noodle arms? Great weather, super friendly staff, made for a wonderful time. We will definitely... More

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
