My wife and I recently took our 15 year old granddaughter and her friend on Coastal Kayak's eco tour to Burton's Island, which is a 10 minute drive from Bethany Beach. We kayaked in 4 single kayaks. Our guide was excellent. There was some basic instruction and he made sure to show us the wildlife of the area, including osprey,... More

My friend and I joined two other people and Todd, our guide, for a tour of the salt marsh in single kayaks. We started with a short intro to kayaking. We then paddled along viewing osprey, herons, oystercatchers, cormorants, turtles (well, just their heads before they ducked under), and more. Not buggy until we got off on an island to... More

We did the 2 1/2 tandem and with a light wind it was a little difficult away from shore. Workers were helpful and equipment was in good condition.

This is a great little outfit right across the line into Fenwick Island. Always check for weather reports, as if you are new to this (or are taking young kids who are new to kayaking) you want a day that's not too hot, not too cold and not too windy. Wear sunscreen, sunglasses, hats and swimsuits. You will get wet.... More

We rented a double kayak and on the way up the bay, we had no problem because we stay up to the shore but when we went more to the middle, it was super fun with the small waves although it was difficult going back (we had a good laugh as everyone else seemed ok but us). We saw shoe... More

My girlfriend and I showed up to Coastal Kayak, no reservation, no experience, listened to a 5 minute tutorial and we were standing up on boards, paddling around the bay within 15 minutes of getting out of the car. Just awesome! We return 3 weeks later, this time to kayak. The staff remembers us! Always nice. I sign a form,... More

Coastal Kayak made our first Paddle Boarding experience a great one. Bob was very helpful with our 9 year old. FYI once you get on rt 24 from rt 1 it is just under 1 mile.

Thanks for your services, we had a great time exploring the coastline of the bay. Lots of nature on the shore and in the water.

I credit Coastal Kayak with introducing me to kayaking and sailing, having rented from them regularly for several years before investing in my own boats, and I now fully enjoy both of these activities as often as I can. Yesterday, I found myself struggling homeward facing stiff headwinds and whitecaps and making very little progress with just a mile and... More

Had a great time renting kayaks with my family. We rented two double kayaks and it was great! They service was friendly and excellent...the location is ideal! We took our two kids, 9 and 12, out on the water for a couple of hours. I would absolutely go back here again...the service, the location and the equipment were all perfect.... More
