We’ll paddle the serene waters surrounding the Assawoman Wildlife Area as we explore its wooded shoreline and salt marsh ponds. Numerous Bald Eagles make their home in the tall pines here so we’re always on the look-out for these majestic birds. Osprey, Blue Heron, Great Egrets, and Red-bellied Woodpeckers are a few of the other winged critters who live and hunt in this area.
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.)
The Little Assawoman Back Bay Tour is close to Bethany Beach, Fenwick Island, Rehoboth, and Ocean City!
This guided kayak tour is suitable for all levels.
Paddling time is approximately 1.5-2 hours.
The price of this tour is $50.00 per person. Children 11-7 years old receive $10 off when accompanied by an adult at the regular price. We require advanced reservations. Minimum age for the Little Assawoman Back Bay Tour is 7 years old. Children ages 7-11 must be in a tandem kayak with an adult.
We will meet you at the launch site (directions sent in confirmation email). We launch from a state park so there is a parking fee if you don’t have a Delaware State Parks Pass. The fee is $10 for out-of-state vehicles and $5 for in-state. The fee is paid at a self-serve kiosk that only accepts credit cards.
