My mom, dad, and I (I'm college aged) went on the 3 hour Salt N Salt Marsh tour. It was a really nice trip! Beautiful weather and not hard at all, even for my mother who had never really kayaked before. Jonathan was clearly very knowledgable and passionate about the Cape and pointed out a ton of the wildlife and... More

My friends and I went out with Cape Kayaking for a five hour trip. I was a little nervous about my lack of fitness and experience, but I had absolutely no problems! The one time I got turned around, Jonathan was able to quickly get me to go in the right direction with the right paddle technique. I never fell... More

Kayaked the Nauset Marsh and had the best time! Jonathan really knew his stuff and had us flowing with the current, making the paddle 100% enjoyable with very little effort. We paddled through the windy maze of the marsh to the Nauset inlet and got to spend a good time enjoying the abandoned beach! On the way out and back... More

Great trip out with myself, my Dad and a group of others. Jonathon was a great guide and answered every question anyone had about the area, and was also brilliant with teaching on the fly for people of all areas. If I find myself back in Cape Cod some time, I will definitely be going on another trip with Cape... More

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.
