Lessons & Tours run out of our two beautiful, and very different, rental locations. Both have direct water access.

Our Essex location is situated right in the heart of the Great Salt Marsh. There is lots of lush green marsh grass and an abundance of wildlife. Our Gloucester location is situated right at the end of Stacy Boulevard on Pavilion beach. There is so much beautiful rocky coastline to explore in America's oldest seaport.

Loved your shop. So friendly and helpful. Tried some other places around the cape and nowhere near the customer service!
