On 8/17/11 our family went to S K watercraft rental, and rented two of their units for $170 for an hour, and still have the receipt. Along with the $170 we had to put down a deposit of $1000, $500 for each unit rented out. We were informed

I cant even explain how mad I am about this company. We rented two snowmobiles for new years and had a blast. But had an issue loading it on the trailor and dented the bumper $56.00 dollar part. With labor and parts and a $100 crash

So I am one of the idiots that chose to rent from this company. Everything on this review site is true. We had a great time, it was super fun and I would do it again. Just never with these guys. After a fun day on the water we damaged

DON'T HAVE A SECOND THOUGHT TO TRY OUT THIS PLACE. VERY DISAPPOINTED CUSTOMER. I wish I would have been smart enough to read the reviews. NEVER WANT TO DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE AGAIN. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO STAY CLEAR OF THIS PLACE IF YOU DON'T WANT ANY FINANCIAL PROBLEMS.

This is the worst ever place to rent jetski or any watercraft. We had a fun day jetskiiing all day until they screwed everything up. We brought the jetski back in perfect condition but they said something is wrong with it. They ended up charging us for something that they can't prove. Never rent anything from them, they are the worst place I know of. It was not worth the fun once everything went the wrong way. No matter how much fun you think you can have on one of their boats/jetski/other never NEVER RENT FROM THIS PLACE. You'll be glad that you didn't rent from here because you can see all the rest of the bad compliants/comments.

We have rented SeaDoos from SK every August for the past 6 years. The staff is friendly and the equipment is in very good shape. We take the kids and ride east up the river. The Columbia and the sandy beaches are the best!
A great family day on the water.

It isn't worth the ride. I rented a Seadoo for my daughter's birthday, but by the time we were back, their fraudulent "damages" ruined the experience for all of us. The damages? Supposedly two small nicks in a subsurface Seadoo decal that I wouldn't have noticed had they been there -- smaller than a pencil eraser. I've done at least a hundred vehicle rentals -- never got this kind of bogus nit picking. We had no boat contact of any nature -- if you're foolish enough to rent from these guys after reading these reviews, take a camera and photograph the entire surface of the watercraft.

My family and I had the Best Father's Day ever! We rented from S K Watercraft and had a great time having fun in the sun and water. We saw the Columbia Gorge and even went downtown Portland on the same day.
My wife and children were extremely impressed with the pleasant staff (believe his name is Blake). We would refer this company to all our friends!

***DO NOT RENT FROM HERE*** There have been many documented cases of fraudulent business practices. I rented a Sea Doo PWC, and when I returned it was told I caused "stress fractures", which were barely visible lines in the coating. My partner and I followed every rule and direction given to us, which were a lot, during our ride on the three-person craft. We did not beach or crash, or otherwise dock the craft in a manner that would cause damage. Doing research on this company, this is their MO- rent watercrafts, then make up damage, and send to "their" shop for repair, then you get the bill. They ruined my birthday present to my boyfriend, and they will ruin your outing too. The bill I got is only for $127, but I have seen complaints with amounts over $2,000. Please do not rent from them, they need to be shut down. It is unfortunate since they have a prime location and we had a nice day up until the point we were told there was damage. But trust me it is not worth the hassle or the potential charges. I have rented boats, jet skis, mopeds, snowmobiles and countless trucks and cars (in many different states & countries)- I have never had a claim of damage. If this can happen to someone who follows every rule and uses the equipment as directed, it can happen to anyone who rents from them. If you have had a similar experience, please e-mail me at seattle_brock@yahoo, as I intend to make sure this does not happen to other customers.

FYI: The two five star reviews were written on the same day, by what appears to be the same user.

I rented from SK northwest snowmobile rentals and had eerily similar experiences to those who rented watercraft. Was charged after I returned the machines for "damages" to the machine. I informed the young man who was the rental manager that I had not damaged the machines--and he told me that it would not be a big deal and that the damages were very minor AND that they would not charge my credit card without first contacting me. About 3 weeks later, I checked my credit card balance, and found that I had been charged $200 in new parts and $200 in labor for these so called minor damages---I contacted the merchant several times and they agreed to only charge me $350, but since I did nothing to incur the damages, I did not admit culpability for this payment---It occurred without my knowledge and permission and the repairs and damages were extremely frivolous----The repairs were basically intended to subsidize their repair shop and employees in a slow economy and I stress WERE INCREDIBLY FRIVOLOUS. I tried to come to a mutually agreeable settlement with the business and offered to pay half of the bill, but eventually my calls were not returned. I ended up visiting the owner, shawn, who was very condescending towards me and said he would look into it---after two weeks with no calls, i contacted shawn who said there was nothing he could do--I disputed the charge and tried to come to a settlement though the BBB, but to no avail. I had a feeling that I was not an isolated case, and felt compelled to post this after seeing some of the reviews. I repeat, I did not rent from S &K watercraft rentals, rather their sister company SK northwest---I just wanted to share my story in hopes that people here will avoid this company to avoid the problems and hassle, I had to endure. Thanks

Reading the negative reviews i was skeptical at first but decided to rent anyways. The staff was really freindly, energetic and made me laugh, and were very adement on what the biggest problems i could run into to make sure i avoided them.
The only drawback was when i was getting checked back in some guy with a russian accent was yelling at the staff telling them he didnt cause some damage that even i could see was pretty bad and probably not there before so i had to wait 15 minutes so they could deal with him before they could check me back in other than that my day was super dee dooper

I come here every year and was surprised to see a lot of bad reviews. I have been bringing my family and friends for the past 6 years. The staff is very professional and is willing to help you with your needs. The prices here are a whole lot better since they run all brand new units each and every year. I usually come in and ask where I can go on the water. With the staff's knowledge of the area, i am always finding new places to explore to have a picnic with my wife and kids. I also recommend calling in to book a reservations because they are usually full at this time of thr year.

DON'T RENT FROM HERE!!!!!!

I went into the place to check out the boats and talk about rates. There were three younger males running the shop. They talked a lot of talk, but didn't follow through on what they said they would do. They said they would be able to "work something out" for me and my specific needs. I was suppose to hear back from them the next day. Their idea of working it out was not ever calling me back. After my third call to them, they told me they wouldn't be able to help me out after all.

DON'T use this place. They are rude and unprofessional.

We rented a boat with SK Rentals on a holiday weekend for a special occasion. Employees showed up 40 minutes later than our reservation time. Before disembarking we filled out a sheet showing dings and scratches on the boat and were instructed on proper use. We left dock and the boat died an hour and a half later (we had it for a full day). We drifted to a dock, luckily only 300 yards away. It took half an hour to get an SK employee on the phone. An employee ran us through a trouble shooting session to start the boat. Nothing worked. More time passed and the owner himself came with a trailer to get the boat. He confirmed the boat wasn't working after tinkering with the engine while we waited. He told us he felt we deserved a full refund since this was "clearly not due to our negligence". However, our money was not refunded. Many days letter when we called back ourselves to find out what was going on, the story had dramatically changed. We were accused of causing critical damage to the engine, "new damage to the propeller", and that we would be responsible for dents the owner "may" have put on the boat loading it (dents we had specified on our rental checklist sheet that morning with his employee). However, he said he would waive the normal 100$/hr search and rescue fees. We gave up after three dead end phone discussions and were charged a full day's rental instead of fighting to disprove his $1000+ in unverifiable damages. Our experience was negative for all involved. It was a complete mess that took hours of discussion with an owner who seemed reasonable in person but was unwilling to negotiate an outcome that was mutually agreeable. It seems we are not the only ones who have had this problem.

Do not rent through this company!!! It is likely the equipment is faulty and they will blame you to cheat you out of as much money out of it as possible.

The boat we rented for a very special occasion broke down in the middle of the river shortly after we got on the water. After many calls to the office without a response and after hours of floating in the middle of the river, they finally sent someone to retrieve us. After the owner told us to our faces it was no fault of ours and that they would refund our rental in full, they completely changed their story and charged us the whole day rental the following day. When we disputed this, they threatened to charge us the $1000 damage deposit despite no evidence of damage and after they acknowledged it was a technical error. Never again!!! If it is an important event/occasion, look elsewhere!!!

I had a horrible experience at SK watercraft. If you like your money do not rent from them. They charged us $560 of damage we did not do.. 3 months after we rented there. They were using the watercraft for 3 months before contacting us about the amount we owed them. They then charged the wrong card and would not make a phone call to fix their mistake. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

WE enjoyed an afternoon rental on the Coloumbia River renting one of the Jet Skies.

Afterwards we were surprised to hear that the propeller may have a damage and they will inspect it and tell us in a few days to see how much of the damage deposit they will keep. Having seen the propeller and housing before the rental, I ask to go and see the propeller again. After some hesitation, they agreed and after seeing the area, it was clear that nothing was wrong with it. I would imagine if I had not inspect the propeller, in a few days I would have gotten a call that there is some damage and I would have been charged anything from a few dollars to a few hundred dollars. So, beware and of if you know of others having this experience or get treated the same way be careful not to get ripped off.
