This is a unique salt marsh tour, rich with history, where we’ll explore the back bays of Assateague Island National Seashore as we search for wild life including the famous Assateague Island wild horses!
Our certified kayak guides give a short instructional session before the tour and also supply all of the safety gear. We use single and tandem top-of-the-line recreational kayaks. These boats are stable, comfortable, and user-friendly. (Touring and sit-on-top kayaks are also available upon request.)
Due to covid19, we’ll be meeting you at the launch site instead of transporting you into the National Seashore.
