The kayak and supplies were great! Staff were very pleasant and helpful! The reason Im taking off a star is because there are other rentals that provide pulleys so you don’t have carry the kayak which can get pretty heavy depending on how far you have to go to get in the water. The staff showed us how to get the kayak on our car, told us how to set up the seats and guided us on the best way to get to the Flat island and the Mokes islands off Lanikai Beach. Staff were very upfront about the dangers of going out there. Maybe if I had known sooner I might not have gone but they assured us the waters were pretty calm so we should be safe. That said, if you’ve never kayaked before I’d opt to stay close to shore instead of trying to go to the islands. I went out with my boyfriend and our kayak flipped over. We were able to get back on it drama free but if you aren’t prepared to deal with that, this might not be the excursion for you because you are out there on your own. Pay the extra $3 for the seats, without them your back may be killing you the next day. Do the full day instead of half day if your going to the islands. Getting back is a task!! So renting a full day allows you to pace yourself and it’s only an extra $10. I’ve kayaked before and I wouldn’t do it alone. If you kayak often you’re good! If you plan on going with a friend, spouse or significant other… this will test your love!! My boyfriend and I became closer after this experience but agree due to fatigue and other factors we could have broken up 🤣 I’d def rent from them again but for the inexperienced kayaker play the extra money for the guided tour.
Not what we expected.

The write up about this experience is a little misleading. You are expected to do everything, from taking the kayak on your car, finding the beach, finding parking, getting the kayak off of your car (it is heavy),dragging it to the beach, and then navigating the route. The day was very windy, making kayaking very difficult. Then dragging it back to your car, getting it back up on your car and secured and getting back to the rental spot. We were expecting a pick up at a beach with help getting ready. So not worth it from our experience.

Good equipment, poor service
, Apr 2021
The girl who helped us do our rental stuff came off very passive aggressive and as if she didn’t want to help us out. She was talking through things very quickly and throwing stuff haphazardly. My group had one tandem and one single kayak and we also rented seat backs, water shoes, a dry bag, and a landing permit. She was so rushed to get us out she forgot to give us the water shoes, dry bag and the permit. We came back for the dry bag and shoes because that’s what we remembered. The equipment was good overall but whoever helped us was very apparent she didn’t want to help us.
