I had a great experience today with Adam and the team at East Coast Outfitters during my half day sea kayaking tour. Exploring the coves in the area was great and we got to see some marine life as well. The ocean was particularly calm today so we got to do a loop that is typically unattainable by more inexperienced kayakers with a large section being in the open ocean instead of in the protected coves. Adam was very knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable the entire time. The snack and beach were a great break from paddling. Overall a great experience that I would recommend to anyone that asks and I would definitely do again!

Our guide Adam was very knowledgeable of both the area and kayaking. He was warm and friendly and very laid back. He tailored our experience to our skill level. It was a very enjoyable day. Thanks.

Great trip. Quick but effective teaching of how-to. Wonderful trip with amazing scenery. We were lucky the sea wasn’t rough so we could go a bit further.

Everything about this company was fantastic! Every person we talked to was so professional and friendly. When I made the reservation, I told Adam I wasn't sure about whether or not I'd be able to do this - whether I was physically up to the challenge. Adam took my concerns and questions seriously, and reassured me. I'm sure our tour was probably a little "tame" for our guide, Justin, but it was definitely an adventure for me, and I felt safe the whole time. We saw several seals and birds, and Justin was able to tell us quite a lot about them. We also got to spend a little time out in the more open sea - not just in the very calm bay. This was the highlight of our vacation so far! Thank you!

Going on a half day kayak excursion was a gem of an experience for us. Even though it was very foggy, the scenery was breathtaking and calming. A restorative experience, and our guide Justin was exceptionally kind and informed.
