If you are not exactly sure of the number of rentals required, reserve what you are sure of and let us know as soon as possible of any additions. We’ll do our best to accommodate you.
Trip/rental Fees: See Rental Fees. These vary due to trip chosen and how many rentals. There are discounts for larger groups [5 plus].

Cancellations: Cancellations will be accepted 7 days prior to your scheduled trip without penalty. A credit certificate will be issued for the same amount for future trip. If it’s storming in our area prior to your trip, you will receive a full refund of deposit. There are no refunds once you are on the water. Sorry, there are no other refunds.
Lost or Damaged Equipment: Renters are financially responsible for the safe return of all rented equipment.
