Discover the beauty of the salt marsh with an intimate kayak tour that offers the perfect vantage point to observe the unique environment and the wildlife that calls it home.
Starting at our boat dock in Essex Bay, paddle into Fox Creek, meandering your way through the oldest manmade tidewater canal in the United States to the site of the historic Brown Shipyard. Keep your eyes peeled for herons, egrets, and other shore birds - with luck we’ll spot an osprey hunting among the grasses!
Please note: Participants must be competent swimmers and age 15 or older. While appropriate for all levels of kayak skill, this trip can be physically demanding. For each guest, we provide a sit-on-top kayak, a paddle, and a personal floatation device (a.k.a., PFD or “life-vest”). If you would prefer a tandem boat, please contact us about availability. You are also welcome to bring your own equipment. If you’d like to do so, please purchase your reservation and then email Victoria Sindorf at firstname.lastname@example.org
with a brief description of the equipment you’d like to bring (e.g., 14’ sit-in kayak, paddle, PFD). Use of personal equipment is contingent on approval by Trustees staff and signing of liability waiver.
Weather cancellation policy: All trips will take place rain or shine with the following exceptions: If there is a high confidence that thunder and lightning will be present, we may cancel a trip up to one hour in advance. If the forecast is for steady and heavy rain all day, we may decide to cancel by 3pm on the day before the event. If either of these happens, all registrants will be notified by email and/or phone with as much notice as possible and issued full refunds.
The starting location and other relevant details for all hikes, kayak paddles, and river boat trips will be emailed to registrants before the event at the address provided upon registration.
