My wife and I took the Pochet Island tour this afternoon. The tour was terrific in all respects. Jonathan is a consummate tour guide -- extremely knowledgeable both about kayaking and about the marsh and its wildlife, and a very friendly and patient instructor. We had a wonderful time, and we look forward to another kayak tour with Cape Kayaking... More

My son (age 11) and I kayaked the Nauset Marsh North Trail with Jonathan this August. It surpassed my expectations. Jonathan was great with all ages and ability levels, and shared his knowledge of the Cape with us as we kayaked through the marsh. It was a fairly easy paddle which was good because three hours can be a long... More

We (my nephew and myself) made last minute plans and were lucky enough to get a 3 hour tour of Nauset Marsh North Trail and got to spend a cool day on the water instead of in the 90 heat today. Our tour guide Jonathan was full of local information and was a great help since we had very little... More

We have kayaked with several companies on the Cape. The goose hummocks is among our favorites? friendly prompt service and an interesting bit of water to spend several hours. lunch is right next door at the Orleans inn. We recommend Goose Hummocks for kayak rentals. we did not have a guide but still enjoyed the water.

My spouse & I recently took a kayak trip through the Bells Neck conservation area in Harwich with cape kayaking. Jonathon collects some basic information on registering for a trip & for the first time I had a kayak that made paddling an easy pleasure. The Herring river is home to osprey, blue claw crabs, fiddler crabs & many little... More

We took the 4 hour Pleasant Bay kayak tour with Jonathan last Friday. It was fantastic. Very peaceful and beautiful! We were blessed with no wind, and that combined with working with the tides made it not as strenuous as we were expecting, a nice surprise! Also, Jonathan is a wonderful guide with much knowledge of the history, geology, botany... More

I went last year, and again this year. The age range of our group was from 10 yrs old to 53yrs old (including a couple of teenagers). Jonathan shared information about the marshes and wildlife in a relaxed, enjoyable manner that we all appreciated. We went clamming, learned about the different size clams, saw an oyster farm and ate some... More

Jonathan was a cheerful, patient tour guide. It's a three-hour adventure. Only a little strenuous as you near Nauset Beach, but well worth it! Make sure you "freshen up" before you depart, as that will be it for 3 hours.

We've wanted to try kayaking for a while, and Cape Kayaking was the perfect introduction. We did the South Nauset Marsh tour on June 28, 2014 and had a great time. It was easy to book, the website told us everything we needed to bring and where to go. Jonathan was a terrific tour guide and handled the group of... More
