The folks at Bass River were friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, clear, and funny. The excursion was really relaxing and beautiful. Nice to be able to stop for a swim, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Lots of fun. Great staff. Took kids out for 1.5 hrs. Kayaked to small beach and kids went for a dip. Good reviews by all. Just make sure you pick right day (current, winds)...weather has big impact but staff will be helpful with that.

We made a great choice in renting Kayaks and Paddle boards here this vacation! So much fun paddling through the inlets in and around the Bass River! The staff were very informative and helpful in making our first experience of this kind a success! Will definitely return next year! Last summer we took the river cruise around the same river...

We had difficulty finding the place - not quite sure why the signage isn't more prominent but that's the way it is. Friendly people and efficient service to get kayaks, paddles and vests. We paddled out again the tide for 90 minutes and it took only 30 to get back which shows how strong the tide/wind can be. Although the... More

Have wanted to do this boat ride for years and finally did it. Loved the ride, the narration and scenery. Worth every penny! 8 of us went and all had a good time.

The Bass Rver cruise is a 90 minute narrated tour of the Bass River and surrounding area. The boat is comfortable. There is a small bar and a toilet available. We enjoyed it very much, However, the narration is totally canned. The captain rattles off information at quite a speed, and we were unable to understand him much of the... More

We wanted to paddleboard, but it was too windy, so we kayaked instead. This place was a great spot to start, as they are right on the water. But if its low tide, make sure to listen to their instructions & stay with the buoys. Otherwise you'll be pushing yourself out in ankle deep water. We would definitely go again...and... More
