Ike’s Beach Service is a family-owned and operated beach rental business located in the heart of the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast. Ike’s has happily serviced beach-goers with lounge chairs and umbrellas for more than 30 years. Founder Ike Williams and business partner Kenny Keelin work alongside Ike’s wife (Stephanie) and children (Charlie and Lauren) during summer seasons to ensure that their guests have an enjoyable vacation. From Fort Morgan to Perdido Key, locals and vacationers alike have come to expect helpful, friendly service from Ike’s employees.
Over the years, Ike’s has expanded to include paddleboard, kayak, volleyball net, and beach wheelchair rentals. Recently, they have added a fleet of parasail boats to their growing list of attractions. Ike’s has also branched out into sand fencing, dune restoration and mechanical beach cleaning.
Ike’s Beach Service keeps in mind that a clean, healthy beach is of utmost importance to visitors as well as the wildlife that inhabit the coast. Throughout the season, Ike’s beach attendants make daily efforts to clean and remove all trash and debris from the sand. For years, IBS has participated in and sponsored various volunteer clean-up efforts. In 2010, Ike’s Beach Service became one of the primary responders for the oil spill clean-up by British Petroleum (BP). Ike’s beach cleaning machines were instrumental in the removal of oil from the beautiful gulf coast.
Though Ike’s Beach Service is most well-known for its fun-loving character, their beach stewardship has gained monumental recognition.
