Sun Shack beach accessories

Come spend a day on the water with one of our boards, single or tandem kayaks, pedal boats, canoes, or fishing boats.  All rentals include life vests and paddles.  We can accommodate most everyone including those with physical disabilities.  Also, toddlers - 3 yrs. and up - with their own fitted life vest USCG Approved Type III, are allowed to ride in a tandem kayak with an adult.


Since we are outfitters for Cabela's, our equipment (some gently used, some new) is for sale.  We have watercraft and Trek bicycles.


Quench your thirst and satisfy your taste buds at Cap'n Jack's Snack Shack.  Please visit our Menu page and pick your favorites.


Forget your Sun Block Lotion?  No problem, our Sun Shack carries Sun Block and Aloe for those who burn easily.  We can also lock up your keys or phone while you are out on the water.


Check out local stores or The Lodge for our discount cards for boat rentals and Cap'n Jack's Snack Shack.  See you on the Water!
