Very least going and relaxed atmosphere. Lots of rate options for single kayaks/tandem kayaks per hour; also offer tours and paddle boarding. Small island across sound called "shark tooth island" to kayak or board too. We did find one!

Went there to rent kayaks. Staff was very welcoming and helpful. Instruction was thorough and they assist with dropping kayak, and getting in. Would use their company again

This is a great place to rent or buy kayaks. Friendly and knowledgeable. We stayed above the business and got to watch their interaction with people. They are very nice.
