“Hard to hear the guide speaking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

I am a sixty-year-old woman and, with a girlfriend, took a two-hour guided kayak tour with Justin. Overall, it was enjoyable. I liked seeing the marsh up close and the paddling was fun. However, I found it difficult to hear Justin because he did not wait for all the paddlers to catch up before beginning speaking. Also, I thought the tour was overpriced at $75 per person.

“Great fun, very relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

We went on a kayak tour of the estuaries and marshes of Sandwich, just like Justin and the website explained. Yes, we did have to paddle, and yes it did require some work, but it was so fun and relaxing. We had a beautiful, windless, overcast morning, so the water, views, and quiet sounds were so peaceful. Justin was very calm and relaxed himself, and made the whole experience so much nicer. We highly recommend it to anyone, of all ages!

“Had a great time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Went on the 2 hour tour for a first date. We had a lot of fun and being from Cape Cod, learned some information about Sandwich that I did not know. It was very relaxed, enjoyable and each person was allowed to paddle at their own pace. I would highly recommend the tour. Everything about the tour, including basic instruction for the inexperienced, was explained very well. Highly recommend!!

“Great Family Adventure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We took the 2 hour tour with Justin on a cloudy morning and had a great time. Opted to use tandem kayaks with our 2 girls (ages 11 & 7) and this was perfect to keep the pace just right. Saw lots of Herons, some other wildlife, but highlight of the trip was the intimate knowledge of the area that our guide/owner Justin brought to the tour. We would highly recommend this trip to any family, not really for those looking for high adventure, but a perfect fit otherwise.

“First time kayaker”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

We had a wonderful time going out into the estuary with Justin and Cam. They were incredibly patient with this first time kayaker, showing me the ropes and being very supportive. It's up to you whether to take the double or individual kayak. Justin supplies water, bug spray, sunblock, water proof bags and lifevests. Justin shared many interesting facts as we paddled, both about the estuary and the town of Sandwich. Such a beautiful spot. I can only highly recommend this tour. We will definitely be back!
