Best place in Simspon Bay to rent them. Any one have an opinion? And a round a bout cost of doing so?

Since you haven't had any other takers let me suggest that, while I'm definitely not saying they aren't available there, I've personally never noticed them for rent in the Simpson Bay area itself. Years ago there was a concession in the lagoon in the Simpson Bay area but I haven't even noticed that of late. Is it possible the creation of the huge yacht basin there has something to do with this?

I know I saw them a few years ago in the Nettle Bay area and definitely for rent on Orient Beach and I know there used to be rentals available at the water sports center in the old Mullet Bay Resort just down the driveway from The Towers, but again, that's been gone perhaps ten to fifteen years.

Good luck in your quest - I know they're out there somewhere because we frequently see them going past Friar's Bay and heading into Happy Bay.

If you can't find a place in Simpson Bay, Rollin and his wife Norma rent them on the beach in Phillipsburg. Years ago Rollin and Norma rented chairs and cooked food at Cupecoy. Then they opened a wave runner business on Orient, and moved it over to P'burg. They are great people.
