Kelly was amazing, we came unprepared (we didn't think to bring drinks) & he let us borrow a cooler. Super outgoing and friendly. Decently priced ! If I'm ever in the area again I will pay him a visit !

We rented 2 fishing kayaks. The delivery was great. Very prompt and the prices were very reasonable. The kayaks were in good shape and we were happy to get some guidance on where and what to fish in the area.
