The guys who run this shop are friendly and helpful. We rented bikes in the morning to visit various nearby beaches, then rented a sea kayak in the late afternoon and paddled to Straitsmouth Island. A nice, short, relaxing paddle when the sea is calm. There are also guided kayak tours.

I have been wanting to kayak to Thacher Island for over six years now and made it happen! My family was out of town so I decide to finally do it! It was a picture perfect Saturday in July. The sun was out, but not too hot, the seas refreshing but not too choppy. I was greeted by Sam at... More

We rented two kayaks for the tour to Thatcher Island. It was a beautiful day, and we had a great time. Really enjoyed the trip. The guides were good--though nothing really special, but we felt confident that we were in good hands should any problems arise. The owner was very friendly and helpful. I would certainly recommend this business to... More

We set off for the two hour kayak tour with two great guides. The sea was rough outside the harbor, but we paddled on and had a great morning. The guides were very accommodating and took half of the group back to the harbor when they said the waves were too much for them. My daughter and I went with... More

I took my three kids on a kayaking tour as it was different than the other locations we have done kayaking tours. First, these guys are very professional and can adapt to kids as well as adults. They are focused on safety and balance it with fun. They told stories about the area and several little know facts as well... More

These folks at NorthShore Kayak are great! Friendly - good equipment - know their way around. If you are interested in renting kayaks and paddling around Rockport - this is the place to go. They have SUPs now too so we are thinking about trying that next time.

Took the 2 HR guide tour and it was great, the weather was perfect and the team was very nice, the equipment is up dated, they have single or double kayaks. Great fun day.

Make reservations and then take a sea kayak trip with a guide through the harbor in the fun little city of Rockport to one of several destinations. North Shore Kayak has both single and tandem kayaks, and seems to have an adequate supply of cute young men to lead the tours efficiently and with the ease of familiarity with the... More
