NO TRIP TO THE VINEYARD IS COMPLETE UNTIL YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED ISLAND SPIRIT KAYAK! I did the SUP by moonlight four times this summer on the 9:30 pm tour conducted by Island Spirit Kayak. Every time, I brought a different group of people...the smallest group was 7! EVERYONE WAS THRILLED with the experience! We had such a blast! Certainly the... More

Unique and awesome activity to do at night. The 3 of us did the evening LED Stand Up Paddle Board Adventure. The lights on the bottom of the board light the water below you. We paddled through the harbor at night, when is is so quiet and peaceful. Maggie, our guide, was so friendly, helpful, and informative. Although it rained... More

We went for a weekend, and our Saturday morning was overcast. We went kayaking, and it started to rain when we got there. The people working were super friendly and helpful. They said that with the lifejacket, once we start kayaking we'll warm up and enjoy it anyways. Plus, the water was still 75 degrees. We got a quick on... More

My group took the sunset kayaking trip. This was the first time I have ever been kayaking. Our trip took us out on the ocean. I was in misery from the start. The equipment on my kayak was broken and jury-rigged. The back was never straight, and I was in constant pain. The guides tried to fix it, but only... More

Super patient tour guide with our group of 5 which consisted of a newbie and one child who was being a tad obstinate. We toured the bay and collected the most awesome shells on a small island. Very friendly and professional staff - this is an activity you must do if you visit MV.

We had gotten a Groupon for Island Kayak and decided to try paddle boarding. With the Groupon the price was $60 per couple for 2 hours (so $30/person). I emailed the owner in advance to finalize arrangements and he was always prompt with his responses. Staff was ready for us when we arrived and were very friendly. Equipment was in... More

My 9 year old daughter and I did a tandem for the sunset/moonrise kayak tour during a full moon. This was the first time kayaking for both my daughter and I. Tex and Sue were great guides and easy going. Sue was particularly helpful to my daughter and I as she helped us navigate our way out of a stubborn... More

3 out of 4 people in our group had not previously kayaked but overall we had a good time. The employees seemed a bit disorganized as we reserved 2 double kayaks for a specific time, yet the employees didn't seem sure when we got there if they would have any boats ready. Overall it was fun and renting for one... More

Rented kayaks $35 for 3 hours. Received basic lessons (we were beginners) paddled around the lovely bay then under bridge, parked ourselves on the beach for sunning and swimming. Next time will plan to bring towel, sunscreen and snacks. Nearby beach is nice for shelling & rock collecting
