We rented Kayaks from CK 4 different times in 7 days. It was tremendous fun. Their location on Fenwick island was very convenient for us from Bethany Beach. They are located on the Little Assawoman bay and the waters are shallow and easy to navigate. Our group ranged from 10 to middle aged adults and we all had a great... More

Our group of 4 adults and 4 kids (8-10 yo) had a great time on the Assateague Pony tour with Chris! I had never tried kayaking before and was a little nervous, but it turned there was no need to be. Great instruction, great guide, great tour! Thank you!

The family and I took the Cyprus tour with Sara. She was very knowable about the tour My family and I had a great time at Trap pond. Look forward to doing it next year.

Chris and August were great leaders for our tour of Assateague Island. Chris was very knowledgeable about the wildlife there, and August made sure none of us straggled away. It was big fun to see some ponies from the kayak, though they were apparently camera shy and cantered away. The kayaks were comfortable and I got some tips for better... More

My girlfriend and I scheduled a sailing lesson. Mitch was such a good instructor that we returned the next day to rent a boat and go out on our own. We can't wait to do it again. We would like to take part in their other activities, too, including kayak and stand up paddle board rentals and kayak guided tours.... More

Thanks for the nice review and even more importantly way to go on your sailboat rental the next day where you had no trouble getting back in an off-shore breeze! Hope you get to come back again and put your new sailing skills to use! More

Rented paddle boards at the store - great location on the lagoon, friendly staff and gear in good condition. Also had a two hour kayak tour up by Indian River inlet which was with a very friendly guide and an opportunity to get to see lots of wildlife including hunting Ospreys.

We wanted a short activity that was not shopping and this was perfect. Staff was friendly and helpful with the tips about how to paddle effectively. We paddled into the wind for a half hour and had an easy ride back.

My teenage daughter and I had an hr sail lesson on a small catamaran with instructor Josh. It was very enjoyable, and we got some good basic instructions on sailing. Others I saw getting instructed for paddle boarding which looked like fun as well.
