Positive experience every time. Super staff. Good equipment. Beautiful location to paddle. Don't miss out on an accessible and fun activity with friends and families or on your own. Thursday's Women on Water (WOW!) in the evening are lots of fun too. Go on a moonlit paddle. Just get out to the cove and paddle!

Efficient and easy booking system with fast and friendly reply from Chelsea to my directions request. I booked a 3 hour explorer tour and had a guide, Matt, who was informative and knowledgeable. The other five people in the group were a family with three children who were not strong paddlers - I think this had an impact on the... More

Well run company in a beautiful area. Make sure to arrive early on the weekends, as parking can be difficult, and book your rentals in advance.

You can try kayaking. While in water, enjoy the friendly seals:) Conclude your visit with eating out in one of the restaurants... More

We went on the 5 hour Island Tour and had a great time! They advise you to arrive 15 mins prior to the tour and that is correct as parking was the only negative of the trip. We checked in and waited for everyone to get life jackets and go over the basics and we were off. This is a... More

As a newbie to kayaking DCK was a perfect and supportive experience. Small group, exceptional instructor James from Portsmouth, and the still evening waters, mist, bird and sea life created a truly stunning backdrop to learning a new skill. I'm coming back!

Went there a few weeks ago and did the Morning Explorer Kayak tour with my husband and 4 year old son. Erin was great explaining the tips and my son loved her! Today I was there a second time but instead did the stand up paddle intro lesson with some friends. Sam was so great teaching the basics and we... More
