Guided Canoe Tours

From the long weekend in May to Thanksgiving in 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.
