Rented two Hobie cats over the weekend. The boats are well maintained and rigged for fun. The staff makes the launch and landing smooth and easy. The sound is a ideal place to sail.

I've used Nor'Banks every year for the past 5 or so and have never been disappointed. I've rented sailboats, jet skis, and kayaks and I've found their equipment safe and in good condition.

Good time with this company for jet ski rental. They are thorough and safety oriented. The ski area was adequate but there were not many out at the same time of us. Equipment was well maintained and facility was very nice.
