Cape Cod Kayak
Reviewed July 5, 2014

We arranged a kayaking tour for my grandson's 12th birthday. The shop sends tours out of Valley Bars, a scenic little bay off Buzzard's Bay. The guide, Patrick, gave lots of information about Cape Cod--its history and ecology of Buzzard's Bay and the Cape Cod Canal in particular. The range of the trip was enough for our grandson to feel that he had had a good full trip, but not so much that he was too exhausted. The guide also provided tips on kayaking, so it was a good learning experience. The group stopped and swam at a beach that could only be reached by water. The guide even arranged for the tour group to sing "Happy Birthday" to Aidan and give him a ceremonial dunking, which he loved.

We wanted to explore Cape Cod by kayak and foolishly assumed we could simply hire the kayaks and get out on the waterways.
The company doesn't show the range of kayaks on its website and, because they're not based on the water and so have to load and drive kayaks down to the water, will only take reservations not walk in requests. This makes it a little tricky to know what type of kayak you can hire before you get to the shop. And as strangers to the area and unable to find any decent waterway maps it's also difficult to determine exactly where you can kayak. The Cape has lots of private beaches and restricted areas, you can't just throw your boat in the water as we are used to doing.
The company could work better with tourists if they improved their website, offered different pick up and drop off sites so you could explore more waterways and provided maps of the area. The woman in the store was helpful but could only hand draw a very rough map.
