“Naturalist kayak tour of Provincetown harbor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

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, the work being done to help save whales and turtles that get tangled in fishing nets, etc.

And, watching the sunset over Provincetown, was spectacular.

“Great place for paddle boards and kayaks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

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!

“Venture Athletics Kayak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

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.

“Friendly, fun and knowledgeable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

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 glorious view of the sun setting over Provincetown as the moon rose over the water in a cloudless sky. It was truly breathtaking and we enjoyed every minute of the two-hour trip. I hadn't brought my wallet since I thought they'd just charge the remaining fee to the credit card I'd used for the deposit, yet that wasn't the case. But they were totally easygoing about us coming back the next day to pay the balance. Everyone at Venture was very friendly and professional. Highly recommended and we look forward to kayaking with them again on our next trip to Ptown.
