Seal Tours July and August

Launch into Nauset Marsh and paddle towards the outer beach where the seals gather. We may encounter harbor seals and grey seals bobbing in the water and view shorebirds; including a variety of terns, sandpipers, oyster catchers, plovers and our resident ospreys.

Note: with the pursuit and viewing of wildlife, sightings can never be guaranteed. Seals come and go with the tide and the schools of fish moving through the marsh towards the ocean. Therefore, we can not and do not guarantee that we will encounter seals. But if anyone will find them if they are around, we will!

We will help stimulate your creativity and offer you a half day of FUN ACTIVITY and ADVENTURE for your whole family outing.

“You do not merely want to be considered just the best of the best. You want to be considered the only ones who do what you do” - Jerry Garcia 

The Explore Cape Cod Educational Program introduces students to the excitement of kayaking and the wonder of the natural world. Through investigations on salt marsh habitats, students paddle to barrier beach environments, where lesson plans have been developed in accordance with the National Standards of Science and Technology.

Cancellation Policy: Half day trips have a 48 hour cancellation policy.
A credit card is required to reserve your spot.

Rain policy: We do not consider your vacation to be an extreme sporting event. We believe in "glide and relax" kayaking. We believe your kayaking adventure is about communing with nature and for us, passing along our extensive knowledge of the area. Sea kayaking can be a very enjoyable activity in the rain. Showery weather is common to Cape Cod coastal environs and usually means that there will be less wind. Our policy is not to cancel for rain, however should there be driving rain and wind we will likely cancel. In addition you will be snugly cocooned by your life jacket, and we bring lots of extra clothing just in case.
