We called to see if they could reserve stand up paddle boards for adolescents - first time doing this. Was told by the owner "chick' "sure, no problem". When we got to the location they sent us to another location saying there was more boards available there. When we drove to the new location (backtracking 30 mins) there was no... More

Such fun! We did LED SUP in Lake Tashmoo in Vineyard Haven. Terrific staff, beautiful night, bioluminescent jellyfish. What could be better? Maybe a little champagne in a glow cup? Sure! It's always nice to get more than expected on the tour!

We had a large group and called the day before to see if they could accommodate a large group for paddleboard and kayak rentals around 9 or 10 in the morning. The woman on the phone said, no problem - they had lots of equipment and there was no minimum time required. We decided to call back later in the... More

Ahoy CHW808! I am sorry to hear about the rude service you experienced, there is no good excuse for that. We are in a remote location and limited to the amount of equipment available, but that is no reason for you to be treated with less than appreciation for you coming to paddle with us! I am sorry to hear... More

Timely service with minimal waiting, even for a large group (17) on a busy morning. Our guide, Brennan, was genuine, interesting and knowledgeable. He engaged us in a game of kayak Frisbee and struck a good balance between leading us and asking what we wanted to see/do.

We weren't sure if we needed a tour or should just rent and do our own thing, so glad we chose the tour. Our guide Patrick was absolutely wonderful! He is so informative regarding the history of Martha's Vineyard, as well as all around well educated. We had a two and a half hour tour and enjoyed every minute! I... More

My seven year old and I took out a double kayak one not so sunny day and had a great time. We didn't get too far when the skies opened and it began to rain. We turned in, and the attendant offered to give us a full refund. My friends also turned in, and they too were offered a refund.... More

With 6 of us in various stages of ability, a sunset/moonlight kayak adventure seemed a bit risky, but we went for it anyway, and were a little nervous when only one guide was assigned to work with us. But Patrick soon put us at ease with his warm and friendly manner, and he assured us that he was there to... More

Ahoy Chindig! Thank you for taking the time to inform us of this experience. I am so sorry your original attendant was not helpful. Sometimes the wind is difficult to paddle against especially for smaller paddlers and you should have been more thoroughly briefed, it was a north wind which you were having difficulty with as there is no current...

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
