Great paddling and narration by Corey! Very personable and fun! Go on a say when it is not windy if you are a novice. Water and sunscreen a must.

Took my family of 6, 4 kids ages 8 to 13, on the two hour guided kayak tour and had a great time. The service was excellent - they answer the phone promptly and provide very helpful assistance regarding the tour options. Easy to find - located not too far from the ferry.

Pond and Beyond kayaking is an amazing operation. For experienced kayakers, the boats and equipment are well maintained, the launch site is right there, and kayaking in the pond is a super way to see the island. Corrie Heinz is an excellent educator and taught my girls to kayak effectively and safely. They went on tours with her and retained... More

My parents, fiance, and I have been coming to Block Island for over 5 years and we're looking for something different to do. We took the ecological kayak tour with Corrie and it was a great time. She is very knowledgeable about the local ecology, history, and much of the current political goings on within the local community. It was... More

Pond and Beyond is always our first choice for kayak rentals on Block Island. They offer high quality boats and paddles at very reasonable rates and allow you to launch from a safe, comfortable access ramp on Great Pond. Nice helpful staff too.

The weather was bad for kayaking the day we reserved, so Corrie fit us into her schedule the next day. The lesson and the touring of the pond was way beyond our expectations. She was helpful, patient and informative.

thank you for joining me on the water. Your review confuses me however. Title is best kayak ever -but you gave Pond and Beyond a terrible review. If your experience was less than favorable I welcome you back to try it again. I can send you a gift certificate. Best Corrie More

My family and I went on an Eco tour with Corrie. It was fantastic! We learned a lot about the ecology of the pond and Block Island and had a great time!

I have been going to this place every time I visit the island and love it because it allows you to bring your dogs. It's a fun time to spend with your family or friends and get to see the whole island.
