The folks at Pond and Beyond were helpful in getting us into a kayak and out on the water (it was my fist time). This was such a beautiful way to experience the water.

My 13-year-old son and I rented kayaks form Pond and Beyond twice during our four days in Block Island. You just walk up, tell them if you want a double or single, pay them and your off. Both days the staff readily answered our questions and offered advice. We each got a single. Pond and Beyond has high-quality sea kayaks... More

Corey is friendly, kind, and knowledgeable about the island and the ecosystem, and was happy to answer questions and give us background and color commentary about what we saw. She treated it like an experience, not a race, and kept us on track to see everything while still letting us set our own pace and not rushing us. Someone in... More

Block Island is a leader in environmental preservation and because of that, species abound on the salt marsh. We thought the Eco-Tour would give us some understanding of the ecosystem and the efforts that have been made to preserve it, and that was certainly the case thanks to our well-informed, personable guide, Corrie Heinz, the owner/operator at Pond and Beyond...

Corey was an informative & interesting guide, sharing historical anecdotes, ecological insights & the tidbits only a local would know. Our tour was more than just a paddle around the salt marsh - it was fascinating way to learn more about one of our favorite places - Block Island. Corey was also sensitive to members of our tour with less... More

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.

We had a great time on the Eco-Tour with Corrie at Pond and Beyond Kayak. The tour was 2 hours on the calm salt pond on Ocean Avenue. We made the reservations a couple of weeks in advance of our stay on Block Island and were able to walk from our bed and breakfast. The salt pond was gorgeous and... More

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. The owner, Corey, who guided our trip... More

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
