We had an absolutely wonderful time! Three cousins celebrating No. 70. Thursday after Labor Day. Had the waterways to ourselves which was a good thing. Paddled over to nearby restaurant dock and had a libation. Fantastic, friendly staff. Can't speak more highly of this business.

The staff was very friendly and offered two cell phone cases for free. None in our family has had kayaking experience before. But it turned out to be very easy and uneventful. Our 7 and 10 year olds both loved the whole experience. Great price...More

We used Groupon and there was no hassle at all. The staff was friendly and helpful, kayaks and paddles were in great shape, the creek was easy enough to maneuver. Would definitely go back next time we are in Cape May!

The captain and the naturalist were both knowledgeable and friendly. Due to the very high tide, we were able to access areas of the salt marsh not usually available to boats this size. The pontoon boat had plenty of room for the 15 people who...More

Had fun renting some kayaks from here while vacationing. Be careful though, they tried to squeeze three 6'+ guys into some smaller kayaks while they had larger ones right near by. Ask for the bigger ones, they do not cost more. I agree with people...More

we leave from the marina and kayak up cape island creek. I would say that two thirds of the tour is in quiet natural areas.

Most people leave their valuable items in their car. We will keep the car keys behind the counter next to the register while people are kayaking.
