Super fun! We rented the Swan paddle boat and it was amazing. The only reason I'm not giving them a 5 star is only... because I wish someone would have given us a warning about getting too close to the Wildlife Preserve. We ended up getting stuck in the mud pretty far from the shore. My son had to jump out of the boat and push us out and then swim us quite a ways into the middle. So it was an adventure for us but I wonder how many others would feel that way?read more

Good customer service. Rental process was easy. Into the water quickly. 2 hour rental was a perfect time! Decent room... and space for kayaking. Quiet and relaxing. Super close to everything in Carlsbad. Easy access from the freeway. Will do again!read more

I came here with my daughter and rented the paddle board for two hours for 50$ Per person.I was fun however you should... expect to have some degree of k ow ledge before heading into the water. We were given the gear and then I had to find a staff member to ask for a quick rundown on how to use the boards and also have to just help yourself to the life jackets.I wish there was more organization.read more

Cool place to hang around for 3-4 hours. I must say that the staff here is awesome they helped us a lot to make sure we... enjoy our time. First, we were confused about what to ride but then we choose to Peddle boats for 2hr, after 15 min we thought we should switch to kayak and they did that without any charge as all these rides are the same price you can enjoy all of them. It must have been possible due to the low crowd on Sunday we went, Jet Ski also we rented 1 and shared amount us, we were 10 people and all of us enjoyed all most all rides. Kids enjoyed the beach area also, the only sad part we felt is no changing rooms, I guess they should have 2-3 changing rooms. I would definitely visit this place again...read more

Be prepared for the crowds. The company and reservation process is quite easy. But there can be a long wait during peak... hours. Today was our first time and my partner and I waited in line for about 25 minutes. The line goes outside the store so you're standing in the sun. Once we got inside, there was AC, and the process went super quick. I believe the attendee who helped us was named Katie and she was extremely efficient, knowledgeable, answered our questions, and we were done in minutes. Thanks Katie!After finding the 2 guys sitting on a deck with clipboards, they vaguely directed us to another young fellow named Brodie (spelling). He quickly got us oir equipment and we were off. The process is not super organized, its more a controlled chaos. But all the attended seemingly just go with the flow and just you off into the water. Was definitely worth the $ for a 2 hr kayaking accent for our first time. Had a good time. Woukd recommend to a friend, but emphasize to go with the flow of the controlled chaos. Wear sandals. Make sure you bring limited items you care about getting wet. Every thing will get wet. 🙂read more

Always a fun spot to go with friends, family or a date. The paddles boards are my favorite. MKe sure to check Groupon... before you go. But if you would rather they have peddle boats, pontoon boats , ski boats and a beach with a jump house.If you need to get out this is a great option.read more

It was fun however they don't tell you that your not allowed to swim there. The cops end up telling you. We rented a... pontoon boat for 3 hours $699.00 and it was a really small place to do circles for 3 hours. We thought we were going be able jump off boat and swim. And our Bluetooth system was broken on our boat so we were NOT fully satisfied especially for the price. They also are unorganized we got sent in all different directions after checking in.read more

Had a fun time for a good price (thru Groupon). Got here at about 11am on a Monday and it wasn't too busy but there was... still a good amount of people. Parking is a little tricky so just get the first spot you see in the dirt and walk down. The bathrooms we're pretty clean and the showers worked well. We rented a couple kayaks and a paddle board for the 5 of us and it worked good. They seemed to have a lot of different stuff to rent so check the website and plan it out.read more

Being situated right off the freeway, how could this little water sport rental place be any good, right. That's what we... thought, but decided to take the kids and introduce them to power boats and wave runners. What a surprise it turned out to be. Staff was friendly, polite and helpful. Parking was easy as place wasn't crowded. Had plenty of top notch gear to choose from. And we all had a blast. Great place to picnic and power boat for the afternoon. Highly recommend spending an afternoon here.read more

Unfortunately you can only drive around in a large circle on jetskis. No open water.
