I had a group of 25 friends who rented and or use their shuttle service. We were all very happy with the management and employees. Couldn't have had any better service.

Good service too. We used them to shuttle our kayaks to KP Hole. They have limited shuttling ability, so be sure to make reservations ahead of time. Perfect location to park, return to with your kayak (or rental). Then, hop around the corner to Blue...More
