This is our 3rd trip with Jonathan and we had a blast! He was very sensitive to our group's needs and took us on a great tour. These trails are the real Cape Cod. Even if you are a beginner don't pass up the opportunity to get out on the water! Jonathan has a knowledge of the marshes and rivers... More

My husband and I enjoyed the whole adventure of Kayaking through Nauset Marsh to Nauset Beach while learning more about the marsh land eco-system and improving our paddling skills. Jonathan is patient and knowledgable and encouraged me to feel confident, even though in the beginning I wasn't sure I had a three hour capability for paddling in me(at 60). The... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our Nauset North Marsh kayaking tour with Jonathan and Cape Kayaking. Jonathan was very knowledgeable about the wildlife, marsh ecosytem, local history, even land use fights going on between local towns regarding beach access. He gave everyone a very clear tutorial on paddling before we entered the kayaks, made sure the kayak and safety... More

I have done this tour twice and love it. The marsh is beautiful and a perfect place to kayak, for both beginners and advanced kayakers. Jonathan provides interesting facts about the flora and fauna along the way and takes good care of his customers. Highly recommended!

This guided tour of the salt mash was spectacular. Jonathan was the perfect guide. The pace was slow and easy, and perfect for a kyacking novice. The beauty of this marsh is breathtaking. Viewing seals in the open water was a huge plus. We highly recommend this kyack tour, but suggest early reservations. The tours book up quickly for a... More

From a kayak in the marshes is the best way to enjoy the beauty of the Cape. this is the second year my spouse & I have kayaked with Jonathon. Potchet Island was a great paddle with the bonus of 12 big egrets sitting in a pine tree watching us. Jonathon is knowledgeable and his review of kayaking fundamentals ratchets... More

I have been on many guided kayak trips both on and off Cape Cod, and this one in North Nauset Marsh with the incredibly knowledgeable Jonathan was one of the best ever. The equipment was superb, rare for the rental operations I have experienced, with streamlined but stable sea kayaks and very lightweight paddles. Jonathan has quite a breadth of... More

Jonathan was our tour guide and he was awesome. Knowledgeable and patient with us. We have a 7 and 11 year old and there was another family in our group - 8 altogether. We really enjoyed this trip. Took a tour and then a break for clamming. Jonathan showed us all how to clam and we look forward to tonight's... More
