We went kayaking as a group with one of the guides (Paul) and ahd a fantastic time: the whole thing was organised but relaxed.
Paul was super knowledgeable but not showing off: he was always ready to share his knowledge but didn't feel like he was lecturing.
He took us around the marshes in what was a great balance of a leisurely stroll and a good workout.
A fab experience

We rented Kayaks from Miss Chris recently and went out into the marsh. We felt everyone was accommodating and in all honesty their prices for rentals are really fair. We checked prices at a another place fairly close that were much higher. They gave us great tips and helped us off the dock. We actually came back early and they were right there to grab us in. We enjoy doing our own thing and appreciated that they didn't hassle us and just let us go out and have fun. It is a little hard to find because it is a small street that is basically a turn off of a bridge, but there is plenty of parking and everyone treated us just fine. It is a nice place to kayak with quite a lot to see and a lot of water to cover.

We liked the slow trip through the marshes around Cape May. The staff were quite knowledgable and helped us identify many birds.

Miss Chris marina offers two hour back bay boat rides on the Osprey, an amazing experience for anyone birding in Cape May. Bob, the boat operator, knows his birds, and knows where to find them. We saw night herons, a clapper rail, oyster catchers, a peregrin falcon roosting beneath the water tower. Bob maneuvered the boat into places we'd never get to on our own, and made sure everyone had a chance to see the birds we wouldn't know how to look for. He knows the salt marshes, the bay, and the birds, and is happy to share what he knows.

We bought a groupon deal for this place last year. The online site said they closed at 5. We got there at 2 and the guy was absolutely rude and miserable from the second we walked up. He told us we were too late so we left. We called to see what time they close today and the recording said they're open til 7. We got there at 3 and the same miserable guy told us we were too late. We said we called and the recording said it closes at 7. He responded with incredible attitude "that's not my responsibility". I don't know how these people stay in business with a guy like that running it. We drove 2 hrs to get here each time. We would neverhave came back the 2nd time if we didn't already pay for the tickets.

Kayak Rentals were closed on the day these people came to kayak due to Gale Warnings with winds exceeding 40MPH. Sept 23. Check the weather. Them wanting to kayak does not override safety concerns. If they had complied with their groupon requirements and called ahead they could have been told. No fishing boats sailed that day due to the weather and the tackle shop was only open for people seeking fishing information for the week. We have serviced over 2000 kayak rentals through various deals without problems or complaint but we will not let a customer endanger themselves just to allow them to have their way.
