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.

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

We loved Venture Athletics! we rented paddle boards very reasonably and the staff was so friendly and informative about the area and how to navigate.They also have a great supply of watersport accessories-we bought a waterproof bag and some paddling gloves which really saved my hands! Thanks for a great experience on the water!

This is a great place to rent Kayaks. I did it last year and will be renting again this week while here on vacation, Great prices $30 for 4 hrs solo or $50 for 2, Well worth it and a great way to tour on the ocean in cape cod.. A nice crew at the shop too.

Two friends and I went on the Full Moon Tour on July 2, 2012. Led by Carlos (and another guide whose name I fear I will misspell!), we were introduced to the basics of kayaking before heading out into the bay. The weather was perfect, with very little wind that allowed us to paddle out around the breakwater. Had a... More
