After reading the positive reviews on TripAdvisor about this unique boat rental company, we decided to give it a try. We rented one of their two 21 foot electric boats for an hour and toured the canals and Duck Lake. It's quiet and easy enough to drive that it's perfect for the kids to take a turn. An hour rental runs $75 and is well worth it. Tom and Nancy are great to work with and can give you plenty of information about the local area. Give it a try.

Tom and Nancy are the nicest people in a town full of friendly people. They have lots of boats to choose from, small and large. and will give you tips, as well as the history of the area. The canals are a man-made development. Bring the whole gang and a picnic and listen to music on the CD player on the boats. Explore a very beautiful area. My favorite experience in Ocean Shores.

What a great way to see Duck Lake. The boats are great very safe and fun to drive. The electric motor makes it very quiet but it will get up and go. You can tour all of Duck lake and sneek up on the wild life for great pictures. The owners are very nice people and the price is fair for what you get in return. I give them very high marks. I hope they are able to survive the slow winters in Shores. I would feel safe out in the boat winter or summer. Great time on the lake

First, Tom and Nancy, the owners, are great; friendly and informative. Their information was right on point. We had one of their boats for two hours, and had a great time every second. We plan on doing it again in April when we return.

Amazing is the first words about our boat ride. We intended to rent the boat for an hour. We did call back and added more time when we found how much fun it was. We can not wait to do it again with the kids. Tom and Nancy are the owners and they were so great. I have to say I left there praying that I would once have a loving marriage and business like them. The whole experience got 10 stars in my book!! We will be back for sure with the kids.
