We rented the GTX jet ski for an hour. The staff is incredibly helpful and the equipment was very nice. We were told this was one of their newest and best jet skis and they were right. The jet ski was very stable and flew across the water. It was my first time on a jet ski and the experience couldn't have been better. I would highly recommend using Best Coast Water Sports!

My family of 4 rented a jet ski and 2 stand up paddle boards. Staff was friendly and courteous. When we had a problem with our jet ski, they quickly fixed it and extended our time to make up for it. I would highly recommend Best Coast Water Sports!

The prices were affordable and the equipment was sturdy and seemed pretty new. The employees were very kind and polite. Wouldn’t recommend for people who haven’t kayaked before since there wasn’t really any instruction/guidance but maybe there would be if asked for. Kayaking area was beautiful and peaceful.

We have rented jet skis here for the last 3 yrs. Always have had a great time. This time was good, however, when we were leaving the dock with the skis one of the workers said to be back by 1:15. We rented the skis from 1230 to 130p. We had arrived early at 1205 to get prepared for our 12:30 time. I wanted to stay out till 130 but my husband said they told us to be back at 115p. I tried to tell my husband they were wrong with the time. When we brought the skis in they said they messed up and yes it was 130 we were suppose to be back. So long story short we only had 45 min out on the lake. We had rented 2 skis that day. Unfortunately, wasn’t worth the $150 we paid for the skis for 45 min. The crew said sorry but never offered for us to go back out or offered us a discount for the time we missed :(

I’m a Cleveland local that had a friend in town for a few days. I took them to rent jet skis for two hours and it was such a fun experience. They were great jet skis, the staff was amazing, & they made sure that you knew exactly what to do. I highly recommend this place.

Got there early ona great day to be on the lake. Reservation for a 3 up ski. Got one that had mechanical issues and needed attention. Made it out of harbor then shut down saying needed maintenance immediately. Went back in to dock. Got in and was told would be refunded due to issues. Nothing done to correct the issue. No customer service or wanting to correct this from the owners. Horrible experience!!

There were no mechanical issues with the renter. This customer booked 2 hours on a busy day, went out and unfortunately, his partner had issues getting back on the machine. Steve Nooney called our office for a full refund and we explained that someone else would have rented the machine as we turned down at least 50 other renters that day. We tried to be courteous by offering to refund the second hour at no fault of our own. This wasn't good enough - Steve called his credit card company and lied and said there were mechanical issues and declined the charges and wrote this horrible review.

Very easy to reserve and pick up a kayak. The creek is very nice but only about 1 mile long before it gets too shallow and full down down trees. However, being able to kayak both the creek and the lake makes it a nice location with a good variety of options.

Rented a Sea-doo and Waverunner for a couple hours with our adult children. Both were great machines. No disappointments, particularly with the Sea- doo.Had a great time even though the lake was a little rough the day we went out. Friendly laid back staff made for a great experience. We will be back!

Spent an hour riding, taking each of my kids out. It was a hot, but sunny day with perfect small rolling waves. Easy to book online, friendly and helpful staff on the dock. Kids loved it...

This is not a bad little place to go canoeing or kayaking, you just need to match your expectations to the Experience.

I had envisioned a kayak trip like Mohican where you go down a lengthy River. This is simply not that type of experience.

When we were there the original Landing normally used to launch the boat was closed due to the high water and the fact that the area was flooded out. This took some maneuverability, as you had to walk down and uneven path of rocks, leading down to the water.

The Kayaks are nice, and the staff was prompt. We had a two-seater for one hour which was $40, which is competitive with other rentals.

Once there, you have two options for your canoe/kayak trip: One is to kayak in Lake Erie and the other is to go down a small River, which the day we were there consisted of about a 15-minute paddle ride, returning by the same Route.

To be fair, I am not sure the short 15 minute distance was due to the high water or not, but the route had several mature trees down, making the River impassable. (you may want to check with them, in advance)

Like I said before it's not a bad little place, and family run. We just went with the wrong expectation which is why I'm taking the time to write this.

Note: Book online or in advance because they have to drive to this State Park to bring you the kayak. Lastly, since this NOT a storefront OR kiosk location BE SURE to buy water before you go out on your journey. You can purchased at the Office of the State Park which is a short two minute drive from the area in which you launch the boats.

Also they offer a 2 hour rental as well. One final thought = If you DOwant to go from the river to the Lake Erie, you do have to carry your canoe for a few feet over some rocks.

For clarification: Cowle's Creek is our launching point. It was used by canoers and fishermen as far back as the late 1800's. It's a unique little piece of history and a nice place to explore. Most of our guests have enjoyed this little area. There is a lot of wildlife and even blue herons can be seen while kayaking. It is a "creek" not a river. To explore both branches of the creek at a leisurely pace will take approx. 30 min. We do not claim it is a lengthy river, or that it will take up your whole hour of rental. Our website clearly says we rent kayaks to be used in Cowle's Creek and Lake Erie. When you rent a kayak, you choose at your discretion whether you want to kayak in the creek or the Lake (marine conditions permitting) or both. We will notify you if we are not letting kayakers in the Lake and you can just paddle in the creek or you can reschedule for another time. Sometimes you can kayak directly out to the lake from the creek and sometimes you need to carry your kayak over a sand bar. It can change daily, so we adapt to the conditions on a daily basis. Our storefront/kiosk - we call it our shack is located on Lake Rd. in Geneva-On-The-Lake, across from the Eddie's Grill arcade. This is all on our website. We have 7 docks at the Geneva Marina in the State Park. We are there Tue-Sunday 10-7, we do not have to drive to the State park, because we are already there. Kayaks & Paddle boards are not permitted from our docks, it's too congested. That is why we utilize the nearby creek as a launching point. As far as buying water, there is water at the Marina store, you don't drive there, you walk over there from the parking lot that you park in for kayaking. You may want to give yourselves plenty of extra time if you plan on visiting the Marina Store before kayaking. Everyone has different expectations based on knowledge of an area or life experiences, perceptions, etc. If you don't expect the Mohican River in Geneva, Ohio, then you'll have a great time! Take a look at our last review from a kayaker: "Super convenient rental of a kayak for a midday adventure. We met them at the marina where the kayak was delivered to the nearby creek to launch into it or paddle out to the lake. Service was friendly, reservations easy, and equipment in great shape."
