We called 10 minutes before the close of business to inquire about a kayak tour in the morning. The staff was very cheerful and easily helped us arrange for a tour even though they didn't have one scheduled. Our tour was great - we paddled around the marshes and bay- saw tons of birds and even ponies! Our guide was... More

I traveled to Chincoteague Island for a peaceful Mother's Day event for myself. As I came into town, I saw Kayaks and decided today is my day. Kayaking is it. So I pulled into SouthEast Expeditions and asked if I could kayak. Hillary had a 1 pm tour and I was set. It was so much fun and I learned... More

If you are looking to rent a kayak, paddle board or hybrid this is the place to go. Great prices, I think it was $55 for a full day rental and that includes delivery and pick up! Staff was very friendly and helped suggest a great board for us to learn on; adults and children alike. Absolutely perfect, and they... More

We showed up without reservation, and we were helped immediately. Super friendly staff, they helped us out with everything, and even gave us their cell phone number in case we finished early and wanted to be picked up instead of having to wait around. Everything was included and fairly priced, and hands down one of the best customer-service experiences I've... More

I cannot say enough about how wonderful this tour was. I had canoed a few times many years ago and was quite nervous about kayaking for the first time. Caroline was wonderful! She made sure the kayak was a perfect fit for me and that everyone was always at their comfort level. We started out with a bit of a... More

We had a wonderful experience with this company. We signed up for a beginners kayaking session and from our first calls/emails with questions to the actual kayaking experience--the staff were very friendly, patient and professional.

My husband and I had never kayaked before and we thought the calm waters of Chincoteague would be the perfect place! Caroline was our guide. She was very knowledgeable on the wildlife of the area as well as her kayaking skills. We had a great morning and were lucky enough to see the ponies!

We had a great experience with SouthEast expeditions! There were 3 (novice) adult and a 4 year-old in our group. Shannon and Caroline were patient, enthusiastic and knowledgable. From the first phone call, they were eager to work around our schedule and to accommodate our needs. We chose the early morning kayak tour, crossing the Assateague channel. Caroline was well-versed... More

We loved our guided tour with Hillary! She knew so much about everything we saw on our tour to the lighthouse! We were not very experienced kayakers and her lesson before we started made us confident and comfortable on the water!
