Guided Canoe Tours

Please note that there is no public canoeing or kayaking for the 2021 season following social distancing and COVID-19 guidelines.

From May to October we offer one-hour guided voyageur-style canoe tours.  Experience the unique opportunity to head off the beaten path and onto the secluded marsh channels that are home to the midland painted turtle, bullfrogs, red winged blackbirds and river otters!  While on tour, visitors can expect to learn about the Wye Marsh's ecological, cultural and historical significance while enjoying a relaxing and breath taking paddle. 
Canoe  tours are offered on weekends only May/June & September/October. We offer daily Canoe tours throughout July and August.
