This was the first time we had kayaked and wanted to make sure we had an experienced and reputable company. We got it! What a great group. They really have their act together - from their very easy website to the end. Because of low signup for the tour we had originally chosen we had to go on another (our... More

I'm a repeat customer and find Coastal to be a great location and price. This was first time I felt that there was a bit of confusion on check in though. I really like place so hope that's not start of a trend.

The owners were professional and easy to work with, great location. We did an hour SUP with four teenagers and no one complained so of course this is a success! We felt the price is reasonable but would caution the time of day you choose, We went at 4pm and although it was calm and enjoyable it was still warm.... More

I'm glad you had a good experience at Coastal Kayak. We do generally recommend that paddle boarders try and get out in the morning since that is when it is usually the calmest. Thanks again for coming to C.K. and hopefully we'll see you on one of our tours in the future. More

I tend to kayak on vacation and took this opportunity to take my 8 year-old niece on her first kayak trip. Chris and Josh were very knowledgeable and personable, taking the time to speak to my niece (she was the only small child on the tour). It was a great time exploring the marsh tidewaters of the bay!

My wife and I took some Kayak lessons from Coastal and were immediately "hooked" on this sport. The folks a Coastal Kayak were professional, knowledgeable, and knew how to expertly communicate the basic skills of paddling, getting in and out, as well as weather and water conditions. If you are a beginner (like us) or proficient, Coastal is a great... More

Coastal makes it easy for individuals and groups to explore the inlets and bys of the Eastern Shore, with ease, Reasonable rates, good equipment and very friendly owners and staff. We go twice a year. TIP--take stock of the wind direction and start into the wind to ease the return trip.

We visited Coastal Kayak in the summer of 2015 where we rented stand-up paddle boards and a kayak. We enjoyed it so much that we came back later in the week for a guided kayaking tour. The guides were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. This year, when contemplating kayaking, we immediately knew we would visit Coastal Kayak again.... More

Headed out with family and friends on an overcast warm morning with Chris as our leader. Chris was great! Very knowledgeable about salt marsh flora and fauna. We had a variety of kayaking skills in our group, and he was very patient and supportive. All-in-all a fantastic morning!! Great value - Highly recommended!
