      and date reservation. They were friendly the day of the pick-up and drop-off of the equipment at the beach. When they picked us up, our group did a lot of the lifting and loading of the kayaks. By the end of our paddling and kayaking excursion, we were tired and that just added more soreness to our shoulders and back. We did pay extra to have them drop us off at the airport. Other than the not-so-cool extra work we had to do for lifting and loading of the kayaks, I would recommend renting the equipment from them.
