I finally decided to try paddle boarding. Friends said to only go to Venture Athletics and I'm very glad I did. Carlos was very helpful and stayed in the water until I was up and comfortable on the board. Will definitely be going back.

I originally went to the other SUP shot in Provincetown down the street. I wanted to rent a SUP but did not want to stay around the area. They were booked on delivering (which they charge $20 for each way) and would not let me take a board on my car because it didn't have racks. The guys at Venture... More

We've tried all of the rental companies in Provincetown and this one is hands-down the best. They're friendly, professional and knowledgeable and make everyone feel welcome. We usually pack a lunch and kayak out to Long Point and hang out on the beach, but this time we decided to try stand up paddle boards and head down the coast. We... More

These guys are the best. Solid equipment, flexible scheduling for drop off and pickup, and great advice on how to make the best of our time on the water. We went out to the tidal rivers behind the breakwater and had a great time paddling around.

My fiancé and I had a lovely time kayaking (him) and paddle boarding (me) out to Long Point on Wednesday, Sept 4. We spent a couple of sunny, peaceful hours out there watching the seals, and leisurely made our way back to Ptown for a late afternoon lunch. First, let me say some things about Venture as a business: we've... More

Everyone in the shop was very helpful. We rented 2 paddle boards for 4 hrs. Price was fair, convenient location for a harbor tour.

We had a great time and opted to go out by ourselves verse the guided tour. There were 5 of us (age range from 9 yrs old - 60) and we rented 3 kayaks. We paddled out the the lighthouse and hung around that island for a bit. Next time, I would bring beach towels and stay out on the... More

The paddleboards were a blast once we got the hang of it...after a few falls into the water! Great way to see the harbor! We can't wait to do it again!

We had a great time kayaking, it was our first time doing this and oh did we have fun. The staff was great they were informative and they had a great sense of humor. There are lockers available they give you a waterproof bag for your camera and I so recommend bringing your camera. We went around the harbor on... More

Went out with a group of about 12 people from 5:30 to 7:30 around Provincetown harbor. Tour was guided by a leader from Venture (Carlos) and a naturalist from the Coastal Research center. Both were knowledgable and helpful and we had a great time kayaking around the harbor, learning the history of the whale trade in p-town, the bird species,... More
