This was one of the hardest, silliest and most fun things I've ever done with my mom. We had 4 people in one of their party bikes, and despite it being excessively uncomfortable and partially falling apart, we made it work, and took it all the way to Birch Bay. The locals were a mix of reactions towards us, partially... More

We've been going to Birch Bay for years but this was our first time in the shop. The man working (I'm presuming was the owner) was literally working his butt off! And, it was a smoking hot day. The shop itself is pretty cool inside. Lots of stuff to look at and purchase. We rented a couple of cool bikes... More

Do not come here... The owners were very unprofessional and rude. They do not even have a strong selection of bicycles to be this arrogant and rude. Do yourself a favor and find another bike rental place. Even if you have to drive out.... It'll be 100% worth it the drive than to settle here. The lady is extremely rude... More

went there in August with 2 families of 5 to rent some bikes and enjoy our day riding along Birch Bay. Started off nice, however the owners scolded one of us - saying to not go on the bikes with the kick stand on. He wasn't putting any weight on the kickstand at all. She yelled and berated all of...

Great gift shop with locally produced goods of all kinds. Also have many different repurposed items, all decently priced. They also have items for kids ranging from different types of flying kits to beach items. The owner is a very up beat happy go lucky guy that makes you feel welcome, and around this area has been rare.

My partner and I rented a three wheel motor cycle to tour the town and see the state park nearby. It was a sweet ride included helmets. We were able to have a nice view of everything and people stared at us because the bike was really cool! I rode on the back and there was a back support also.... More

...overpriced...arrogant, sarcastic owners, that are so unhelpful that they are border-line rude. I mentioned that things are even cheaper in Malibu CA-where NOTHING is cheap--and was told that this equipment is MUCH better than anywhere else (he does his "research"). He might also want to spend some research time on people skills....the bikes worked fine, however my ride was tainted... More

I have tried to rent kayaks twice from this place. It is run very unprofessionally and it is hit or miss if someone will even be there. The last time I tried, I had called first and was told not to come past 4:00 or they might not be there. I arrived at 3:30 to find the place locked up... More

Came by to rent a kayak about mid-day, and they were closed on a day that they are listed as open. Sign on the door said that they had gone to Semiahmoo to go kayaking, and it concluded with "Join Us!". This is the only kayak rental shop that I could find in the area. Didn't think that one through,... More
