This place has sit inside kayaks as far as I've seen all the other places only have sit on tops. The workers are very nice and pointed out oyster beds for us to check out. Make note of winter hours.

These folks have sit inside kayaks that are a much dryer ride than the sit on top ones rented in town. Really nice people working there, knew info on tides. A bit of a distance from the tourist area but it was a pleasant paddle....More
