This was our second time using Sunrise (last time was 12 years ago) and both times were great adventures. The guides are helpful and Rob is not only an excellent guide but a fantastic historian. This was such a unique adventure for our family!

We do and we provide foam gunwale pads and straps if needed with the rental for transporting on your vehicle. We also offer delivery and pick up service for rented equipment which may be easier depending on your situation.
