The sunset cruise takes place while the waterfowl and shorebirds are busy hunting and gathering food for the night. Many times you will see turtles, schools of menhaden, a variety of crabs and jelly's on the bay's surface. When the schools of bait are plentiful you may see groups of porpoise rounding up dinner for the evening! It's a magical time on the water with the the sounds of gulls, turns and herons boasting their voice while the glow of the summer sun hits the horizon.
Join the group for an unforgettable Ocean City, Maryland Eco Tour. Travel through the shallow waters of the bay and view nature at its best. During the day the wildlife is abundant and the water is the most translucent allowing paddlers to see all types of fish, crustaceans. and selfish. Skates and rays are best viewed in the morning while afternoon tours are sometimes better for birding. The waterfowl and birds of prey are out hunting and gathering as you meander through the marsh and open water. The tour reaches from 67th street to 97th street depending on the weather.
WHAT TO BRING
Both tours leave from our protected cove and paddlers are provided with the latest in safety equipment and paddling gear. Photographers on our trips often choose to bring a waterproof camera or water bags for alternate video and photography equipment. Other than your will for excitement, not much is needed to skim the water. Bare feet are recommended for Stand Up Paddlers for more grip and are fine on kayaks as well. The waters bottom is sandy and safe. For those a bit more leery of the bays bottom, water shoes can be worn on kayaks but not recommended for Stand Up Paddle. Personal belongings can be left ashore guarded by our staff or tucked away in your vehicle. We look forward to having you on one of our epic adventures.
