From the time I was pick- up from the Ferry terminal,
my trip was great. I had the “Birdie” vehicle, what a
great ride to get through the roads of Prince of
Wales Island. Full equipped with everything you
need. Thanks for great customer service –

Our first trip to Prince of Wales Island started out great!  We
were met at the Hollis Ferry terminal by Darren Lamp of Hollis
Adventure Rentals.  The vehicle we rented was in great condition
and the standard extra’s that Hollis Adventure Rentals provided
were amazing!  We had never before rented a car with
binoculars, Spot Messenger, emergency provisions, detailed
maps and he even threw in a few extra’s above that if we needed
them.  But, above all  we were impressed with his friendly
attitude and sincerity.  The rest of our time on POW Island was
wonderful as well, and we met a lot of nice people.  Maybe it’s
something in their water!  Anyway, when we come back this fall,
we will surely rent from Hollis Adventure Rentals again!

"Rented from HAR last
summer (2009), and I
intend to rent from them
again this summer
(2010).  Their prices are
very reasonable, and
the service is great.  
From the very first
contact, I felt like I was
being treated like an old
friend, rather than just
another customer.  
Darren Lamp really
seems to enjoy helping
others enjoy the many
benefits of the island."

We rented a car from Hollis Adventure Rentals and it was
extremely convenient.  They had the car waiting for us at the
ferry loaded, gassed up and ready to go.  It came with everything
we needed to explore the island safely.   We traveled almost
1000 miles on the island in one week.  If I do it again I would rent
a boat and camping equipment.

"Last July my wife Audrey and I were heading to Hydaburg to
visit family. We also have a house there. I contacted Hollis
Adventure Rentals regarding an automobile to use while we
were on the island. At the time, all vehicles were booked.
Darren went out of his way and allowed us to rent his personal
use Subaru. We had a great week along with a few Cohos.
We're planning a similar trip this August and will be in contact
with Hollis Adventure Rentals soon."

Thanks and Regards,

Wow, what a beautiful place to vacation.......we wanted to write and thank
you for providing us with such a well-equipped vehicle!   Edward, the van
we rented from you was in perfect condition with every possible option
needed to make our vacation in Alaska joyful and easy!  We are looking
forward to renting from you again this summer!  Take care!

In September 2009, our group of four hunters were very fortunate to
connect with Darren Lamp and the Hollis Adventure Rentals family for
our hunting trip to Prince of Whales Island. Their attention to detail,
honest and open approach to do business, and focus on serving the
customer was a bonus to our trip that we really were not expecting.  
They provided us with a lot of little extras that really made our trip less
complicated and more enjoyable.  We rented a skiff which was very
well equipped and was everything we were told it was.  We did
experience some damage to the skiff from a rough low tide escape and
Hollis Adventure Rentals was very fair in making things right.  Our trip
was presented with challenges due to last minute hunting regulation
changes and the Lamp family helped us salvage our trip by filling in the
holes we could not cover.  After finishing our hunt, we felt we had new
friends in Alaska and not just another business contact.  Alaska
travelers are fortunate to have Hollis Adventure Rentals as an option
when wanting to experience the real Alaska.

----Our experience with the Lamps was great. The boat we rented
was in very good shape and did all we required of it. On my next
trip I will try to rent a vehicle from them and go sightseeing.

Hollis Adventure Rentals
was fabulous to work
with.  Darren was very
personal and went the
extra mile to outfit the
vehicle with everything I
wanted or possibly could
have needed for my
visit.  Alice was well
endowed with very nice
features; fully equipped
to provide me with a
good time on the Island.  
I would gladly rent her
again, and I will definitely
use Hollis Adventure
Rentals again for all of
my rental needs on
Prince of Wales Island in
the future!
so I could drive the 2 1/2 hours to Whale Pass.  We made the reservations
over the phone and Darren took care of the rest.  He met me at the ferry in
Hollis, had the vehicle ready to go and had thought of everything- even a GPS
tracker, in case of emergency, which I greatly appreciated since I was
traveling alone.  He went the extra mile and took me to my place of lodging
and helped expedite that process so I could get on the road ASAP.  The
vehicle was well maintained and reliable.  Above all, Darren's caring,
personable concern and assistance was invaluable.  I highly recommend
Hollis Adventure Rentals!  -
