What our customers say!

We rented kayaks 2 days in a row here. It was our son’s first time so we got a tandem. He did great and loved it!! The staff was so friendly and extremely helpful! The views are outstanding! Highly recommend this it’s so peaceful. Row right up to beach next to ocean! Get out and explore.

I highly recommend this place. It was a clean and organized facility, and the staff was so nice and courteous. They even made a great suggestion to ride against the tide going out so we’d have a relaxing ride in and she was RIGHT! Bring water and wear a bathing suit so you can go for a dip at the beach before paddling back.

We celebrated our grandson’s 11th birthday with an afternoon of kayaking on Swan River 1 1/2 miles out to the beach. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We will most surely return for more adventures. P.S. the cleanliness of the facilities was outstanding.

Smooth sailing from this crew. We were in and on the water within 10 minutes. Great scenic pedal boat ride up and down the river. Blew away our expectations!

Cory Loudon -

Great experience for us first timers. Great staff, great equipment and clean bathrooms. They were very helpful and encouraging. We would definitely return.

Just came here with my family of 3 kids under 6. staff was incredibly helpful and pleasant. My kids spent 5 minutes on the electric paddle boats and the owner was nice enough to give us a Kayak without any hassle! I plan on coming back when all my kids are old enough to boat!

Amazing! I absolutely loved it here. The staff was friendly and welcoming! This was so much fun and at an amazing price. We went in a paddle boat up the river, the staff informed us about water current and what animals we could see during our trip, it was really great and relaxing! Would definitely go here again

This place was incredible! We pulled in and were quickly greeted by the friendly staff. They had all brand new equipment and we were walked through the entire process and off we went. We paddled down the river, we saw ducks and swans. The trip was very pleasant and I definitely needed the exercise. We had a wonderful trip, the people were great, the staff was awesome and the product was great. The scenery was wonderful and you can also go to the beach and take break. I highly recommend this day trip to anyone who is interested in kayaking or paddle boarding and of course the paddle boats, for the less adventurous!

They have friendly workers, competitively priced, and very fair in their rates. They charge for 1 1/2, but give you 1/2 hour window of flexibility. We were a party of 4 and they could have easily charged another 40 on top of the 85 it cost, but let the additional 40 minutes go without a charge. That left us enough time to kayak down the river (against the current, have a swim at the beach, relax and kayak back. We will continue to use this company.

This place is great. The people are super friendly. You can go towards the lake or the ocean. We went towards the ocean and ended at a beach on the Inlet. Had a swim and went back. It Took about an hour and a half. I’ll be back.

It was a beautiful facility that’s was nicely run. The staff was helpful and very courteous. The girl behind the desk gave us a great suggestion due to the tide. It was a beautiful meandering course to the beach. We took a quick swim and headed back. 1-1/2 hours was plenty of time. Bring waters, it was a bit of a workout going against the tide paddling out. I would definitely do this again!

Rachael C. -

Amazing! There is plenty of parking, perfect location on a sleepy river. You can head to the pond or down to the Sound, and the kayaks, canoes, SUP are very kid friendly. They have beautiful facilities with cleanest bathrooms on the Cape. Staff is sooooo nice — laid back. And when it rained on us we got a full refund. But no worries, we will return. These folks are the best! Highly recommend!

It’s always a good time kayaking down the swan river, and the staff at the waterways are friendly and informative – they’ll tell you if the tide is good for your level of experience or if might be better for you to come back later. Oh – and there’s PARKING!!

A fun way to spend an afternoon! Staff is super friendly and helpful, the paddle boats are in excellent condition, the view is beautiful. My husband, five year old, and I all fit in one paddle boat comfortably. Our older son and his friend took another paddle boat and it was easy enough for them to navigate and control the boat. Great family afternoon on the water!

You can rent kayaks, paddleboards or canoes. Go downstream to the ocean and a little beach, or upstream to Swan River. Nice marsh views either way, and your choice may depend on the tides. Their staff is friendly and helpful.

We hired a paddle boat last week. I was pleasantly surprised at how modern and clean the facility is. The staff helped us plan our route around the tides and gave hints and tips to make our journey better. The changing rooms are clean and there are toiletries for you to use. It was so lovely to have somewhere nice to change after our excursion. Swan Lake was pretty and we saw plenty of wildlife. We had a great time – thank you!

We arrived at 9am on an early summer morning to rent two kayaks. It’s easy to find with all of the kayaks visible out front. The set up for putting in is nice. They have a waiting area to line up in so it’s not chaotic. Once we were set to go they put our kayaks into the water and helped us adjust the seats and foot pedals before sending us off. We went north in the direction of the Swan River. There were at least 20 egrets among the river. We also saw 4 hawks and the swans that must give the river and pond its name. It’s a really delightful place to kayak. Very scenic! It is subject to some tidal changes and if windy, it can affect the paddling. I have to mention that the restrooms were extremely well set up and clean. We utilized them to change afterwards into ‘regular’ clothes for the rest of our day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed paddling here and will definitely come back. This is highly recommended.

We had a wonderful time kayaking and paddle boarding on the Swan River. The rates were reasonable the scenery was fantastic. The first time we went upriver with the tide to Swan Lake which is about a mile. Our second trip was 1.5 miles downriver to the ocean. My nine year old had no problem on his paddle board. Unless you are racing, there is no way to do upstream and downstream in 2 hours. Staff was nice and helpful on both occasions. Would definitely go back!
