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

My husband, 16 year old daughter and I took our first kayaking ride ever by booking the Nauset Marsh North trail leaving out of Eastham on our recent 2-week Cape vacation, and could not have been more delighted. Jonathan Palino, our instructor took us out -- each one of us outfitted in our own kayaks and life jackets -- with... More

My husband and I loved our kayaking trip through the marsh, across the bay to a gorgeous beach. We waked over a path to the Atlantic side and had the chance to cool off there. On our return trip, seals watched our group kayak by as they swam very nearby. Jonathan is extremely knowledgable about the area's history and environment.... More

My spouse and I did the Nauset Marsh South Trail on a Friday morning. It helped that we had kayaking experience, but an intrepid enough first-timer could hack it. It is truly a unique perspective on what the Cape has to offer in terms of natural beauty and wildlife. Jonathan knows this place, flora, fauna, and natural history like the... More

My girlfriend and I recently did the Nauset Marsh North Trail in the morning (high tide). A quick background- I began looking into kayaking a few days before our recent Cape Cod vacation began, and found what seemed to be a myriad of options in the area. After narrowing things down a bit and stumbling upon Cape Kayaking through an... More

My daugther, my wife and myself thouroughly enjoyed every minute of our kayaking trip. Jonathon was not only well versed in the history and the make up of the Marsh but his guidance both in what we were seeing, how to kayak and navigate the area and even pointing out the wildlife was fantastic.

We were a group of four on a recent Nauset Marsh South Trail trip. What a spectacular way to spend an afternoon. Guide Jonathan started with a brief, informative lesson in kayak protocol - very helpful for those of us who had picked up bad habits in the past. His knowledge of the area was exceptional for navigating the shallow... More
