See Block Island from the water the right way

Communication with Corrie before our day trip to BI was very friendly and helpful. We reserved a 1-hour tour for our family, to include 2 kayaks shared between myself, wife and 2 young sons (ages 3,7). The trip was flawless, we met Corrie, boarded the kayaks and paddled around the Pond for an hour while Corrie pointed out the sea... More

Just returned from Block Island where we went on our second kayaking adventure with Corrie. I cannot recommend Pond and Beyond enough. What a pleasant experience of the Great Salt Pond with an expert who really cares about her customers! We love kayaking, and we love getting out on the water with Corrie!

The owner / tour guide, Cory, is lots of fun. She is professional and helpful, with a very pleasant, fun demeanor. Because of unfavorable weather she had to combine tours the day that we visited, but deftly handled the group of twelve making everyone feel safe and very welcomed despite varying experience and ability levels. Great Salt Pond is a... More

Corine was very helpful with renting us kayaks and telling us where to explore. The day we happen to go was very windy which could have been challenging but she told us where to go where the wind wasn't. We enjoyed exploring two small inlets at the southern most point of the Great Salt Pond where we saw ducks and... More

Our family loves Block Island and we always find something new to do or see on each vacation. We decided to do a kayak tour this summer and boy was it great! Corrie was full of information about the island, its waterways and ecosystems. Our 13 year old and 10 year old loved it. Corrie and her staff were very... More

As a wheelchair user, I often miss out on these kinds of activities! But not in this case! Corrie is accommodating, encouraging and made me feel welcome from the moment I first contacted her. She is in her element in the pond, providing info about the island, the pond and features of both--she is from the island and knows her... More

An enjoyable afternoon out on the water - Corrie was great with our 6 year old - having him solo for the first time - being ready to tow him if needed - but he was having such a good time he could have gone on for longer than the two hour tours. A great way to spend time on... More

This was the highlight of our entire vacation. The guided tour gives you so much information about the fish, fowl, and plant life, not to mention very interesting tidbits about the island. Pond and Beyond is all about kayaking and making sure you have a great time. Very fair prices and very accommodating to schedules. Don't pass this one up.

A group of seven of us had a fantastic evening with Corrie while visiting Block Island for the first time this summer. Her kayak tour was the only organized tour we planned for our five days and it helped to inform the rest of our visit. Her insights and knowledge about the history and current events of the island were... More
