We went out on a Sunset Tour for Mother's Day. We've all had experience kayaking, so we had no problems maneuvering our kayaks thru some tight marsh areas on the Assawoman Bay. We saw lots of birds and our tour guide was great at answering our questions and pointing out interesting things to see. We had so much fun on... More

Our family of five had a great experience with Coastal Kayak. We rented Paddle Boards and Kayaks. We all wanted to try the Paddle Boarding for the first time and this was a great place to try it for the first time with the calm waters of the bay. The staff was very nice and informative. We plan to return... More

We were a group of 12 women with kayaking experience ranging from none to a lot. By the end of our two hour tour, thanks to our two excellent guides, we were all handling our kayaks with relative ease in the face of rising wind and chop. A fun morning -- we learned a lot about kayaking and the natural... More

On the day of our trip, this outfit must have been understaffed or overbooked. One of our kayakers made it very clear that this she did not have experience and was assured all would be well. She first made a comment after being placed in her kayak that the back rest did not feel right to the male guide. He... More

Three friends and I just returned from a great paddle with Jim. Jim was informed on nature around us- birds, plant life, etc, and helpful on a recommendation for lunch (Crab Factory) and interesting shipwreck museum. It was a fun outting!

The high ratings for Coastal Kayak are well deserved. I rented a single kayak and was on the water for over 1.5 hours. They charged me a measly $15! Saw egrets and a great blue heron. Will try to join a guided tour next time I'm in the area. Great find.

Lovely time kayaking with our knowledgeable guides Todd and Mary. Saw a plethora of wildlife on the water as well as on land, (pelicans, egrets, blue herons and wild horses) watched a horseshoe crab have lunch (creepy, in a good way), took in beautiful scenery, and paddled our crabcake dinners off. ;) Great time. Did the Bald Cypress Tour with... More

We took the Ecotour up near Bethany. Our tour guide was Heather. She was well-informed and very positive with all of us. 4 solo kayaks and 2 tandems in the group. Well-equipped. Great pace. Great tour. First time kayaker and I will do it again. Tour is slightly over 2 hours with an island break in the middle.

First time kayaking. We rented two doubles and thought an hour would be too long, but how quickly the time went. You can stay out longer no one is rushing you. They recommend water shoes. The only time my feet hit the water was getting in and out of the kayak. It was a fun experience. Good for families and... More
