Good selection of well maintained boats and jet skis within a short drive of Folsom (straight down Douglas). Pick up and drop off could not have been simpler. 6-7 pm return time allows for a true full day on the lake and in my opinion adds value. Bonus, there’s a Chevy’s right across the street 😉
Chuck provided us with an awesome experience. Two in our group had mobility or medical restrictions. Chuck modified his tubing process to meet their needs, allowing everyone to have a turn at tubing. We're definitely going to do this again.
Mike and his wife were excellent to communicate with - very kind and helpful! I made a big faux pas - fortunately no harm done - and they were quick to dismiss and not worry. Look forward to using their services again! It is so nice to have someone deliver kayaks , oars, and life vests and then come pick them up. Great Service and great people to work with - i have already referred some friends to Mike and Liz!
This was our second adventure with Chuck. Cannot say enough great things about him. He is the PERFECT captain with an amazing boat. Just an awesome host for 8 17-year olds - lots of water sports, swimming, and cruising with a great sound system that he let the teens be in charge of. Truly, cannot recommend him any more strongly!!!
This company is just about as friendly as people can be, communicates well, and is extremely knowledgeable about the area, wildlife, and equipment. My experience is that they will go way out of their way to accommodate for anything to make the trip perfect.
This pontoon boat is fantastic! Spacious and drives really well! Nice Bluetooth speaker system. Plenty of power to pull a tube! Michael was great in planning drop off and pickup and really helped us out by bringing the boat to us! It was a great day on the lake!!
