Loved this adventure....wife and I are flight attendants and were on a layover. We took the whole crew for the kayak rental. This is a must do while in Providence...it is right downtown. Will definitely do it again if we get the layover....staff was professional and fun. Keep up

Wow! Thanks for the great review dtwbrian! We LOVE hearing from folks who aren't from Rhode Island and so appreciate you bringing your flight crew down for a paddle. Hope you can stop by on your next layover and until then, we wish you safe travels!

What a great tour of Providence! A great way to exercise your brain and your body. Marcello is an engaging and informative tour guide. He accommodates all skill levels and takes the time to orient those who are novice kayakers. His knowledge of Providence history runs deep.

We're so happy that you enjoyed your tour with Marcello, who was actually filling in for our regular tour guide CJ! He's been working the river for many years as a gondolier, so it only made sense that we put him to work as a tour guide. (and he's also my business partner, so it was fun to see him out there paddling with everyone!) Thanks again for joining us last weekend, we appreciate your business!

I rented a single kayak on August 10. Needed some relaxing recreation. I paddled from the Basin at Providence Mall to the new Footbridge down by Point Street. I paddled under the Memorial Street area near Dyer Street Dock. So much fun. Took tons of pics. Picked up trash

I went on a 98 degree day. I was concerned it would be too much. No breeze super hot and humid. All were incorrect as assumptions go. There was a breeze seemed cooler by the water and many places for shade. Very cool not very large but. A really good time.

Thank you for braving the weather this past weekend! We, too, were concerned that it may be too hot out there, but the 8am start was perfect. We really appreciate your business, thank you so much!

A great way to see Providence from a different angle! The crew is so helpful also, getting you in and out of the kayaks.
