“great place to borrow a boat”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

John is full of stories living and working on the sea for 60 years! Only $20/hr to rent a kayak and paddle down the Oyster River to harbor or pond. Fantastic service - will be returning!

“Kayak Expert and Guide to Water Sports and life”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

My wife the novice kayaker had a great time, and John made her very comfortable getting set and started. Many kayaks to choose and a great location to launch. Cash or credit accepted.

This activity is for anyone with an arm to paddle. Go for it!

“More than just kayaking”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I've now used Chatham Kayak Company twice - once to try out Stand Up Paddling (which was great fun and good exercise!) and once to use a double kayak (my tall husband and I finally found a sport we can do together!). Both times, John McGrath was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and entertaining.

There are a few things that make this place stand out: 1) it's not a crazy busy touristy outfit or area. 2) John's been at this spot for years and knows everything and everyone. You can get an animated history lesson if you want a wider perspective on your travels. 3) You have all kinds of options for rentals - paddleboards, single kayaks, double kayaks, more. John can help you with everything and can take you on guided tours as well.

All in all, I would recommend Chatham Kayak Company for ease, entertainment, price, location, options and an off-the-beaten path fun activity. I'll go again.
