I rented a beach cruiser for the week and was very satisfied. The staff was very helpful and the rates are reasonable. They also offer pick up/drop off service for a fee for those who are interested. I would definitely rent from them again.

The shop staff was excellent and very helpful. They offered and provided additional assistance to my friend and I by delivering a tandem kayak to the sound. Their prices are also extremely reasonable. Will definitely use them again!

Perfect place to rent a kayak. The rates are cheap they take it to the water for you and pick it up. They also have bikes and paddle boards along with a shop.
