“Awesome Adventure!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

My husband and I rented the single rider mopeds. They were peppy and in good repair. None seem to have ever been wrecked. (We rent mopeds everywhere we go, so have seen our fair share!) the woman at the counter was experienced in guiding new riders, she was patient and encouraging. Also she did not make us feel like kindergartners which is awesome...We had a great time cruising the island, all cars we came across were respectful and not trying to run us off the road (thanks vegas!). Just stay to the right and single file and they pass you respectfully, ie:not in a wind of rocks and dust.
Our over all experience was on point. The cost comparable to most, def worth it to view the island with no restraints of a metal cage. Definitely liberating!! Only downside....not enough time to see everything before the last ferry :( We will def be back on our next visit to the island and have already recommended this business to our family and friends!! Thank you so much!! We are customers for life!!!

“The car was the most economical choice”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We took the ferry over to San Juan Island from Anacortes WA. We wanted to rent a moped or scooter but we were surprised at the prices for those options. The Scoot Coop looked like fun, but the price was 50% more than the Chevy Tracker. It was nice to be able to see the entire island and stop when and where we wanted. They provided a map and instructions on refueling. The only thing they didn't mention was that all the parks they suggested visiting have a $10 per day visitor fee.

We are glad the Tracker worked for you. You still got the sun in your face and the wind in your hair and enjoyed your day. Good point about the $10 park fee at Lime Kiln State Park and letting people know. Thank you.

“A highlight of our trip to the San Juan Islands”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We rented a scoot coupe for 4 hours and had a lot of fun driving to the south of the island and back. We paid about $160 for the trip but felt it was quite worth it. We took turns riding it with our child and my parents and this was definitely a highlight of our first trip to the islands. We also had a car but it was a totally different experience riding in an open vehicle and a fun one like the scoot coupe. Our 5 year old totally enjoyed the experience and I am sure he will remember it!

I thought the people at Susie's mopeds were very nice too. They were friendly, helpful and laid a big emphasis on safety. They took us through the instructions multiple times without sounding impatient, gave us everything we needed and took the time to plot a route for us and advise us on which roads were best. They also told us to yield to other cars when safe which felt to me like they were considerate both to their customers and neighbors. They made conversation with our 5 year old and helped him pick out the right helmet and eye protection. When we returned, they spared the time to talk to him and ask him about his experience. I definitely felt they were going beyond being a business and took the time to talk to customers.

About the one negative review, I am not sure what transpired there but these vehicles are ready weight conscious. When rode with a passenger who was just close to 180 lbs and overall we were within the weight limit - the coupe still was a little more difficult to drive. I don't know if they could have said it nicer to the other person who wrote the review but it indeed wouldn't have been enjoyable.

About the ride itself, it was truly great and we had a lovely day as well. While driving down the coast, we had birds fly over us and the best part was sitting low and seeing the see through the grass. We felt safe for the most part but the vehicle does tend to get a little unstable at speeds over 30 especially on some of the grooved roads. Most trips will take more than an hour unless you are just driving without stopping to take in any of the scenery. Also for the most part, other drivers were considerate except for a couple of wierdos that I guess you'd find anywhere. Btw, there coupes are popular and they have only about 10 so make reservations.

On our next trip, we are definitely renting them again and touring the other parts of the island! The only thing I wish they could make better was perhaps more detailed maps in case you take a wrong turn (cell phone service was spotty on the island).

“Professional, fun, great way to explore the island”
Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

I found the staff at Susie's Mopeds to be very friendly and professional. They give you a very thorough, clear briefing on how to ride/drive your vehicle of choice, and they won't let you go until they're satisfied you're safe. That's very important, obviously.

It's a great way to poke around SJI, as you're moving slowly with plenty of time to enjoy the gorgeous scenery.

I hope the locals don't hate the rentals too much <grin>

If you want to rent one of the car-like ScootCoupes, you should make a reservation ahead of time. They're pretty popular.
