My friend and I signed up for a morning paddle in the Nauset Marsh, North in mid-June. Jonathan, the owner and guide, is very personable and really knows that marsh! We took little waterways through the marsh, snaking around at his guidance, avoiding other paddling groups, and had a great time. The group was small, as he plans it, so... More

All I can say is this is an absolute can't miss. I called Jonathan and he set up an incredible private trip for our 9 family members ages 7 to 70. Hands down this was EVERYONES favorite part of the trip. We kayaked through the salt marsh and learned so much through the beautiful journey about the creatures and plants... More

My partner and I have tried kayaking a couple of times and thought it would be worth having a crack at it in Cape Cod. We found Cape Kayaking by researching on the Internet and gave it a go. We were not disappointed! This caters to beginners and families and is a lovely, slow paced row through beautiful areas of... More

We had a great time on the Pochet Island trip. It was a little strenuous at first, but in th end a nice mix of open water and more relaxing marsh paddling with views of wooded islands, the Orleans waterfront, and a secluded Atlantic beach. Jonathan is an amazing kayaking instructor and guide with a wealth of knowledge about the... More

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
