“Pleasant experience”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Everyone in the shop was very helpful. We rented 2 paddle boards for 4 hrs. Price was fair, convenient location for a harbor tour.

“A fun kayaking trip!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We had a great time and opted to go out by ourselves verse the guided tour. There were 5 of us (age range from 9 yrs old - 60) and we rented 3 kayaks. We paddled out the the lighthouse and hung around that island for a bit. Next time, I would bring beach towels and stay out on the island. It was definitely a good workout paddling to the lighthouse but the view from a kayak is great and in a way very serene.
I would have given them 5 stars if for the exception of pricing which for a family, the 4 hour minimum was a tad bit pricey. That being said, it should hold you back as its a fun activity. We went in the earlier part of the day.

“FUN!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

The paddleboards were a blast once we got the hang of it...after a few falls into the water! Great way to see the harbor! We can't wait to do it again!

“FUN!!! FUN !!!! FUN !!!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We had a great time kayaking, it was our first time doing this and oh did we have fun. The staff was great they were informative and they had a great sense of humor. There are lockers available they give you a waterproof bag for your camera and I so recommend bringing your camera. We went around the harbor on the lighthouse side and we encountered probably 15 gray seals that just kept following and wanting to play with us . What an experience that was that is why I recommend the camera.

“Naturalist kayak tour of Provincetown harbor”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Went out with a group of about 12 people from 5:30 to 7:30 around Provincetown harbor. Tour was guided by a leader from Venture (Carlos) and a naturalist from the Coastal Research center. Both were knowledgable and helpful and we had a great time kayaking around the harbor, learning the history of the whale trade in p-town, the bird species, the work being done to help save whales and turtles that get tangled in fishing nets, etc.

And, watching the sunset over Provincetown, was spectacular.
