The staff just didn't seem to have time for us. The lady that waited on us didn't seem to know much about kayaking and didn't seem concerned about, well anything really. She just had this dejected bored way of walking around, I assume she was the owner. She seemed more interested in the crab place she was running at the... More

Made reservations the day before for the early morning (8:30 am) guided nature paddle. I was told by the person who took the reservation to be sure and arrive by 8:20. We did, and found the place locked up and deserted. (It is a side business of a fish market) Someone finally showed up after 8:30, took his time unlocking... More

We went out on mid morning paddle tour, group of 12 people. Even though two groups had called ahead it took them some time to get organized. However, once out in the water it was great experience, very relaxed vibe with friendly tour guide. Saw some wildlife, and length of paddle was perfect, you don't come back exhausted! We followed...

We rented a kayak, no tour guide and the service was excellent. They helped us with getting the kayak out and selecting the proper gear and a few tips too. The staff was very friendly. We saw a tour guide with his group out on the water and he bothered to ask us if we were doing ok, which we... More

Loved the atmosphere, the staff was well educated, and the views and laid back vibes were so great! I Will be going back every summer. As for the man who said he wanted a Kayak tour in March, Cape Kayaks does not open until may, so he is surely mistaken as no one would have been there to answere the... More

Our guide, Arman, was very nice and gave us a great tour of the marshland. It was a relaxing 1.5 hr paddle and we learned a lot about the ecosystem. The only drawback are the biting green flies! Even with bug spray, they attacked us. Suggest you wear long pants and sleaves. Better to sweat than be assaulted. Also, can... More

The staff is great and the entire experience was well worth the affordable price. My family loved the whole establishment- we went kayaking and then sat down for some all-you-can eat crabs! It was great and really gave us a feel for the local community. Very fun and I recommend it to everyone who visits Cape May and Wildwood!!

My 8-year old started out great but as time went on she (who was in a kyack with my wife) started panicking when they got close to the shallow shore. The staff was great and very patient. They wound up attaching a rope so that one of the staff could keep the boat in the center while they all paddled.... More

Pleasent experience with staff, good kayaks at reasonable prices. Salt marsh is not the most entralling place to paddle.
