“Guided kayak tour two miles from Rockport MA to Thataher Island, home of Twin Lights”
Review of Northshore Kayak

Northshore Kayak
Reviewed 29 August 2017

Guides were excellent and attentive to our safety. Paddlers of single seat kayaks had sleek, light and fast models. the four Seniors in two tandem seat kayaks had tubby, heavy and slow models which will be replaced soon,the guides said. Thatcher Isl has the only twin lighthouses in the h US, the island is a bird sanctuary run by the National Park Service; the sea birds are fearless around humans,the view from atop the South lighthouse of the Cape Ann coast is wonderful. A safe trip in good weather.

Highly recommend. It was the favorite thing of my husband and my sons to do. Paddled out to Thatcher's island. Beautiful day, great views, wonderful experience.

Went with another family that totaled 3 adults and three teenagers. We rented basic kayaks; two tandems and two singles. The staff were super friendly and helpful and provided us with the place to store our stuff and even offered to provide a waterproof bag if we needed one to take things on the kayak with us. Provided clear instructions and we paddled over to the island with the lighthouse and walked around. They also rent bicycles and paddle boards. Highly recommend this place. The teenagers had a great time.

i lived right up the street from NSK....folks there are always friendly and ready to get you going. They prep you with a little schooling and the do's and dont's of being on the water in a small craft. Just watch the weather and be prepared to come ashore if it turns bad. you will surly have a grand time and come back for more. bring water and a snack, a hat and sunglasses. Enjoy....

The guys who run this shop are friendly and helpful. We rented bikes in the morning to visit various nearby beaches, then rented a sea kayak in the late afternoon and paddled to Straitsmouth Island. A nice, short, relaxing paddle when the sea is calm. There are also guided kayak tours.
