Quaker Neck Landing has a significant amount of history buried beneath the sands and the waves. The area that we will explore on this paddle contains the evolving story of humans in Maryland over thousands of years, and the nature and natural resources that drew (and continues to draw them) to Quaker Neck. During a typical voyage, participants paddle through scenic, undeveloped portions of one of the Bay’s tidal tributaries while learning about the flora and fauna that make the region so unique. Kayak programs take place on the National Park Service’s Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail and were established with the support of the National Park Service’s Chesapeake Bay Gateways office.


Kayaks are provided so all you need to bring is water, a snack, and your binoculars!
