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

We had 5 ladies, in our group and the total tour was 8, which was small enough to feel like we had essentially a private tour. Some of us had a bit more kayaking experience than others, but we all were able to maneuver through the narrow and winding waterways during low tide in the Nauset Marsh. It was perfect... More

My 12 year old son and I had a fantastic time today. Jonathan is well versed in Cape history and wildlife. We both had a wonderful day and I highly recommend this company.

Easy paddling with helpful pointers from Jonathan, owner and guide. Rudders on the kayaks were very helpful. Learned a lot about the marsh's nature and history. Loved seeing seals and nesting terns on our stop. Jonathan is a knowledgeable and cool (according to the teen) guide.

We took the Nauset Marsh North tour, my husband and I and our two teens. It was just the 4 of us and we each had our own kayak (with rudders) which we all highly prefer to tandems. The day was perfect weather wise, Jonathan was very knowledgable and helpful, and we all just had a lot of fun. So... More

This was a lovely family experience and I highly recommend it to others. We wanted to try something a little more intimate and interactive than many of the Cape Cod boating trips available. Kayaking was something new to our family. I was particularly interested in the educational aspect of the tour and I was not dissappointed. We toured the southern... More

This was one of the best experiences we had on our trip to the Cape this year! My husband, two kids (ages 11 and 5) and myself had never been kayaking before but always wanted to give it a go. So glad we did! The owner/guide, Jonathan, was super chill, extremely knowledgeable about the vegetation & sea creatures and very... More

This was a wonderful adventure for all of us - my husband, myself, my daughter (8 yrs old) and son (6 years old). Jonathan was a great guide - he's so very knowledgeable and we learned quite about the Marsh -- history, conservation efforts, different types of wildlife ... We would highly recommend this tour and will certainly be doing... More

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
