The staff was friendly and courteous. The prices for a cart rental are competitive. We rented a cart for 4 days but after then next morning our cart wouldn't move. I contacted the staff and they came to our condo and picked up our cart and left a replacement that worked quite well.

We stopped here on our wait out of town. The boys loved the hermit crabs. The ladies were patient with the boys and knowledgeable about the crabs. Sold 2 crabs to 2 happy boys. Great store with lots of options for souvenirs.

We found this place online for surfboard rentals. Very pleased. The staff was super helpful and friendly. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome. And the surfboard was only $25 for the day!

Our family recently visited Port Aransas. We rented a 6 passenger beach buggie from Ryan at Island Surf Rentals. He even gave us a step stool so my 85 y.o. father could easily get in and out of the buggie. Ryan was helpful in giving directions to the best spots on the beach and in town. We had a great... More

After years of watching other families putter around the island on golf carts, we finally decided to rent one today! There are so many there...this is the one we just happened to stop at, and we are so happy we did! The guys here run a great shop...very friendly and helpful. They even gave us some extra time with the... More
