My husband and I had such a great time on the Smithsonian Mallows Bay tour with our AKC guides Judy and Jeremy. Judy, the owner, was engaging, knowledgeable and flexible - she let the group set the pace and left lots of room for questions and topics that were of interest to tour participants. I highly recommend this if you're... More

We booked a couple of solo kayaks in Indian Head, MD to kayak the Mattawoman creek. What a blast, we got to see a bald eagle, egrets, hurons and ospreys during our trip. We were out on the water for about 2 hours and only cost $43! We had a great time and plan to go back soon.

I recently booked a Mallows Bay "Ghosts of the Potomac" guided kayak tour for a group of 16 friends and coworkers. Judy, our trip coordinator and guide, was very helpful and gave us great tips to make the trip more enjoyable for our group of experienced and inexperienced kayakers. She suggested booking at low tide so we had better visibility... More

In early June I tried to book a sunset kayak tour for July 3rd, when I was going to be in DC visiting my daughter and son-in-law.

Judy L, Owner at Atlantic Kayak, responded to this review

Thank you for the feedback. Atlantic Kayak Company conducts most of its programs for pre-organized groups, such as the Smithsonian Associates. We do not offer many tours to the general public, which is why there aren’t many dates for these types of tours on our website or in our calendar. On this occasion we tried to accommodate a request for... More

We did a Smithsonian tour with Atlantic Kayak. Jody, who is the owner, is very knowledgeable about the area, which was the lost fleet on the Potomac. The kayaks were all doubles, her staff were very nice and we had water and a treat. VERY ENJOYABLE!

Atlantic led a Smithsonian Resident Associates kayak tour at Mallow's Point Park in Charles County, MD. They were excellent. Judy, here Atlantic associates, the equipment, the teaching, the exploration of the WWI wrecks in that part of the Potomac, all added up to a great trip, the very hot weather notwithstanding.
