Hardly any parking at this establishment, and the staff were rude and unprofessional. I was hoping for a fun outing with my friends and this place ruined the entire experience.

We had a great time kayaking. They took us to the dropoff, got us in the water, and pulled us out and drove us back at the end. Nice guys that helped us; twins and Dave were great.
