We were able to kayak and didn’t have to haul our kayaks or take them home, we were able to leave them after our trip at the dock. It was an awesome trip and a beautiful day! Great service and wonderful communication! Would highly recommend.

Very convenient service, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Would definitely plan a trip through them again. Recommend getting BUGGINS gnat spray because the bugs on the water were pesky and that was the only product that seemed to work.
