What Customers Say About Us
This place is ran horribly by an egotistical.manager name Connor .
He knows yelp , groupon and google shows "close 7pm." BUT BECAUSE They wanted to get their Superbowl party on ..They shew away business and told people We close at 4pm .
Tim the cashier was trying to get us in but Connor obviously had a party to go to ..
Great place to go with a group that needs to rent together. They have an awesome bbq hang out area, you might have to rent though... I'm not sure. If you are a solo person with your own watercraft (kayak, paddleboard, etc) there are other locations in San Diego that are more visually interesting. This wide open water spot, if there is any kind of wind, works in your favor in one direction and provides challenges in the other. Also you must pay a day use fee to the rental place if you do have your own gear.
We had a great experience. Used Groupon to get kayaks. Great parking and kid friendly beach area. Quick and simple check in. Two great hours on a calm Lagoon on a clear and warm sunny winter day. Saw jumping fish but didn't catch anything. Very simple and family friendly. Thanks for a great afternoon!
Really fun once you get through the check in process! Go on Groupon to get best rental rates! Be aware that if you're a first time paddle boarder, you want to go on off times/days. They allow boating and jet skis in the same area (they designate a section for them) so it creates waves. I think it's the best part, in addition to the jumping fish!, but it's not for the very first timers. Currents/winds can also add to the difficulty level. It is such a little Carlsbad gem!
Only con is the check in process is always a mess. Teenagers run the office, which is totally fine- what a fun summer job! But that's the type of service you get. No one really cares much- it's just what do you what to do, pay this, sign this waiver, oh stand in a huge line while there are three people behind the desk and only one actually working, sorry, and then a total mess and cluster to actually get in the water. I was wading into the water with peddle boats, jet skis, 5 paddle boards, and they're like here you go, find your way out. Not exactly safe or organized entry. But once you're out there, SO much fun!
Stayed at a resort close to here and wanted some family fun so we headed on over here. It was a bit crowded considering it was the day before labor day, but all in all my family and i had a blast. We rented a boat, which was a bit on the pricey side for an hour but it was well worth it. I did not necessarily like the Jet ski rink they have because you're limited to going in large circles so we skipped that but the boat was worth the wait.
Rented a jet ski for an hour. They allow you to ride it in a fairly tight area and just do laps. Basically go in circles with about 10 others riders, creating an unpleasantly choppy area. I was bored within 10 minutes with the monotony of doing laps. Much better to rent jet skis in Mission Bay.
Staff was very friendly and the beach area is very pleasant. If they would open up the area where you can ride it would be a good experience.
