Looking for a unique outdoor recreational adventure?  Experience the wonders of the wetlands via kayak.  An experienced and certified naturalist/kayak guide will lead you through basic kayak instruction and then will lead you on a paddle to explore the watershed of Marshy Creek.  We will hope to 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 decefit disorder!

Tours scheduled for both beginner and intermediate level kayakers.  See dates below and description of the experience. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

CBEC Volunteer and Adult Education Coordinator and Certified Level 2 American Canoe Association Instructor, Courtney Leigh, will lead trips. Reservations required, please email Courtney Leigh cleigh@bayrestoration.org or call 443-262-2032 to register.
