Guided Kayak Trips

May 18th at 5:30pm

May 21st at 1:00pm

An ACA certified Kayak Instructor and Naturalist will guide you through basic kayak instruction and then lead you on a paddle to explore the watershed of Marshy Creek. While kayaking, you may encounter wading birds, waterfowl, and migratory raptors hunting the marshlands. Other common sightings include otter, muskrat, terrapin turtles, mating cownose stingrays, schooling silversides, undulating jellyfish and slithery water snakes! If nothing else, the ebb and flow of the tide through gently swaying marsh grass is the sure remedy for nature-deficit disorder! Guided trips are offered three times a month from May through October during the 2017 season. These trips are for beginner to intermediate kayakers and include instruction on equipment, paddling/safety techniques, and loading and unloading the vessels. The experience will give you up to two hours of paddling time with a self-provided snack break at the halfway point.

Cost is $15 per CBEC Member and $20 per Non Member
