Kayaking with this company is great fun. The guide was nice and informative and we learnt about the many animals who call Cape May there home. Overall I would recommend Cape Kayaks to anyone who needs something to do In Cape May.

Great location for kayaking in the Cape May area. Easy in and easy out of the water for beginners. Calm water and many options of where to paddle to. Went with group of 15 had a great time. Price was very fair as well.

The staff just didn't seem to have time for us. The lady that waited on us didn't seem to know much about kayaking and didn't seem concerned about, well anything really. She just had this dejected bored way of walking around, I assume she was the owner. She seemed more interested in the crab place she was running at the... More

Made reservations the day before for the early morning (8:30 am) guided nature paddle. I was told by the person who took the reservation to be sure and arrive by 8:20. We did, and found the place locked up and deserted. (It is a side business of a fish market) Someone finally showed up after 8:30, took his time unlocking... More

We rented a kayak, no tour guide and the service was excellent. They helped us with getting the kayak out and selecting the proper gear and a few tips too. The staff was very friendly. We saw a tour guide with his group out on the water and he bothered to ask us if we were doing ok, which we... More

Loved the atmosphere, the staff was well educated, and the views and laid back vibes were so great! I Will be going back every summer. As for the man who said he wanted a Kayak tour in March, Cape Kayaks does not open until may, so he is surely mistaken as no one would have been there to answere the... More

Our guide, Arman, was very nice and gave us a great tour of the marshland. It was a relaxing 1.5 hr paddle and we learned a lot about the ecosystem. The only drawback are the biting green flies! Even with bug spray, they attacked us. Suggest you wear long pants and sleaves. Better to sweat than be assaulted. Also, can... More

The staff is great and the entire experience was well worth the affordable price. My family loved the whole establishment- we went kayaking and then sat down for some all-you-can eat crabs! It was great and really gave us a feel for the local community. Very fun and I recommend it to everyone who visits Cape May and Wildwood!!
