Spent the hot weekend on a Saturday at this park and rented kayak for our kids and friends. The fee was reasonable at $100 and we divided the fee amongst the parents. It was fund and no waves, a perfect setting for the rets of...More

Rented the 21 foot laser boat directly with this company (did not use a groupon), which seems to be a higher end duffy boat model. Looks really cool and the leather seats are comfortable. Good table space for putting food in the middle and the...More

We picked this company because of a Groupon and it turned out to be a fantastic deal. We were in a "small" boat... comfortable enough for four. The engines are restricted to five miles per hour... so the truth is anyone could drive one. The...More
