Great time

Went on the Cape Porpoise tour on July 5. It was a great time. Justin and Riley were fantastic guides with great knowledge. Tour of the lighthouse was a highlight.

We rented bicycles and booked a kayak tour with this shop. Both experiences proved to be successful. The staff was consistently kind and helpful. Our kayak tour was peaceful and the guide made it easy. He was knowledgeable and easygoing. I accidentally left medication in the pocket of my life vest and the shop kindly returned it to the B...

Rented the kayak for a half day adventure up and down the river. The lady who assisted us with the rental was very pleasant and appeared to love her job. Even though we were not new to kayaking she showed us a little demonstration before we took the kayak out. I will definitely be back.

The two ladies working here should not be, the young man at the dock is very helpful but he is paddling upstream trying to give good service against these ladies. First lady, Jan, in the shop, barely talked to us about our set-up or how their outfit works. Her customer service does not exist. At the dock a young man... More

our first time kayaking was awesome-we rented a tandem kayak and were so fortunate that we were the only 2 in our tour-our guide was very patient with us and geared the tour to our needs/wishes. we had a lovely picnic at the lighthouse at goat island.

Enjoyed the tour and the kayaking very much, Gregg the guide was terrific, energetic, happy and fun. My only recommendation would be that they tighten up operations a bit, there's a lot of standing around time that would be more fun spent on the water. But the staff is helpful, Gregg and Andy other guide are terrific, and the scenery... More

I'm sad to say I forgot the owners name who was so friendly and welcoming to our group upon our arrival at 9AM, but she and her staff were a total joy to be with. First off we had two young doggies, a Stafforshire Bull Terrier and Siberian Husky. The owner told me the wonderful stories about her dogs, (German... More

I rented a nice kayak from them. I was given a decent life jacket and paddle. I did not go on a tour. You are not allowed to paddle out to the ocean on your own but you may paddle down stream a bit to check out the harbor. Once up stream the Kennebunk river is quiet and beautiful. There... More

My wife and I did the kayak tour out to Cape Porpoise and it was great! Gregg, our guide, was very knowledgeable and extremely entertaining- and took lots of pictures of the group. My wife and I took a tandem kayak and never had any issues keeping up with the crowd. The trip was split up perfectly with a trip... More

We took the tour as a group of six and had a great time. Despite a questionable weather forecast, we were assured that our safety would be their goal. We had a great time and Gregg was informative and fun. I found it a little difficult to keep up with the group at times, and I would have really liked... More
