The best views of Chatham are from our dock and the surrounding beaches, rivers, marshes, inlets, and ponds!
Feeling lucky for this unexpected feature in the Boston Globe by Christopher Muther and Devra First. We especially loved this quote, "Pre-coffee, Devra was passed by motorboats, other kayakers, toddlers in water wings."
Of course, we always recommend caffeine before paddling and those water wings really give the kids an unfair advantage. View the full article.

The following morning, the water was sparkling, the wind was gentle, and two kayaks waited for us at a dock on the Oyster Pond River.
THE CHATHAM KAYAK COMPANY: We were lifejacketed up, ensconced in our kayaks, and ready to paddle. The laidback guide pointed in a few vague directions: “That’s the easy way. I recommend the other way, which is a little harder. Just don’t go in the ocean and you’ll be fine.” Christopher jauntily pushed off. He appeared to be taking the harder route. Hey Christopher, the easy way is that way! An evil cackle floated back on the wind. We glided easily, following the shore, making eloquent declarations like “Wow, this is so beautiful” and “Wow, this is so amazing.” The time flew. Fueled by Diet Pepsi, Christopher made quick work of the return trip. Pre-coffee, Devra was passed by motorboats, other kayakers, toddlers in water wings. But she didn’t wind up in the ocean.
Just a Few of our Happy Customer Reviews
Awesome experience. They were very helpful in getting in and our of the kayaks, making sure the kids had the right size jacket and giving us some tips of where to go. The shack is on a tidal cove that is sheltered from the ocean waves. You can choose to stay there or venture out past it (about a mile long) into the ocean. We stayed in the cove (out of the way of the the boats coming in and out) but had a great time.

A perfect hidden gem. I love how relaxed everyone was and the equipment was great.
