Pond and Beyond kayaking is an amazing operation. For experienced kayakers, the boats and equipment are well maintained, the launch site is right there, and kayaking in the pond is a super way to see the island. Corrie Heinz is an excellent educator and taught my girls to kayak effectively and safely. They went on tours with her and retained... More

My parents, fiance, and I have been coming to Block Island for over 5 years and we're looking for something different to do. We took the ecological kayak tour with Corrie and it was a great time. She is very knowledgeable about the local ecology, history, and much of the current political goings on within the local community. It was... More

Pond and Beyond is always our first choice for kayak rentals on Block Island. They offer high quality boats and paddles at very reasonable rates and allow you to launch from a safe, comfortable access ramp on Great Pond. Nice helpful staff too.

The weather was bad for kayaking the day we reserved, so Corrie fit us into her schedule the next day. The lesson and the touring of the pond was way beyond our expectations. She was helpful, patient and informative.

My family and I went on an Eco tour with Corrie. It was fantastic! We learned a lot about the ecology of the pond and Block Island and had a great time! Corrie gave everyone individual attention and at the same time, kept a close eye on the rank beginner (that would be ME)! Corrie's two helpers were also really... More

I have been going to this place every time I visit the island and love it because it allows you to bring your dogs. It's a fun time to spend with your family or friends and get to see the whole island.

We had such a great experience on our eco tour! Corrie is extremely knowledgeable about everything Block Island - from the oyster farms to the birds we saw to the best place to grab a drink. The lakes we explored were beautiful and seeing the island by kayak is incredibly relaxing. Though the tour is 2 hours, it is not... More

Pond and Beyond was the second call we made to inquire about renting kayaks. Our first call would not allow us to bring out Portuguese Water Dogs Pond and Beyond welcomed them to join us. Cory was very accommodating. We chose double kayaks that could fit the dogs very comfortably in between us. Our paddle through the back ponds was... More

I have two kids (6 and 9). We all went kayaking the whole morning. Since the pond area is so tame, my wife and I were so comfortable kayaking with the kids. The launch point was strategically located making it very easy for us to go out and start exploring. In addition to the activity being outdoor with some physical... More
