A great way to have a unique experience on the Eastern Shore is to paddle through the salt marshes of the National Wildlife Refuge near Fisherman Island.  Our trips take about two hours, all ages and skill levels are welcome.  The protected creek channels are an ideal place to learn and practice paddling strokes and to enjoy the salt marshes, wading birds, and peace and quiet.

We can plan more advanced paddles to nearby creeks and islands. Bring a snack and relax on a sandy shore and paddle salt marshes surrounded by wading birds and fiddler crabs within sight of the high rise of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.  We will visit three distinct habitats:  tidal salt marsh, maritime forest, and sandy beach.

This is a perfect way to create a day to remember during your family visit, holiday, or summer vacation. Combine the tour with a visit to the nearby Refuge Visitor’s Center and end the day with some lunch, dinner, or local entertainment!
