Store managers and owner not very nice. Was told one policy at one of their locations and a different at the other. My kids were looking forward to do big bike from one location to the other. And despite what I was told at one place they refused to let us do what we wanted with my kids right there... More

This looked like a fun thing to do...leisurely ride for an hour with my wife up and down the waterfront. Well...prices were reasonable, scenery was nice, employees were helpful. But this was a LOT tougher than it looked, especially on any kind of incline. There aren't gears so you work really really hard, and navigating the narrow poles at the... More

Ask for the land and sea package. $50 per person for a bike and kayak for 24 hours. The staff is incredibly friendly and there really is no better way to see the area. Bike trails are everywhere and the kayak experience is something you can't miss. You get as close to seals and otters as you could ever want.... More

Great experience renting a 2-person kayak. Staff was very helpful and upbeat. Great and quick, explanation of how and where to enjoy our time on the water. We saw sea otters, a harbor seal, and a whole bunch of sea lions. Remember to sunscreen the top of your feet even if the air temperature is in the 60's! And if... More

Kayaking with family of 9. Teens and preteens enjoyed equally. All of the employees were very helpful both with booking and answering questions prior to trip and the actual tour.

The people are nice but VERY MISLEADING!!!! I was clearly and directly told the battery would last the 2-hour rental even if i didn't pedal! ( I was even told to would probably last an entire day!) and even WITH pedaling it didn't last to the end of the 2-hour rental!!! After mentioning it to them they didn't care at... More

So happy that we decided to do this tour. Our guide was Ann. She was absolutely fantastic, she knew everything about the seals, otters, sea lions, generally anything to do with the sea-life and environment. We were on the water for about 2 hours, thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely do it again, or recommend to anyone thinking about... More

I can't say enough good things about this company. This was a last minute decision that I am very glad I made. Whether you are vacationing with your family, friends or going solo, this is a "MUST DO." I rented a sea kayak, but the company also rents bikes and paddle boards. The cost is very reasonable and includes full... More
