-A note on Assateague's famous mosquitoes; We rarely have mosquito issues. The mosquito population can reach incredible numbers on Assateague, however mosquitoes prefer shaded areas and cannot fly in winds over 5 mph. Therefore, we have very little problem when we are on the water. Multiday backcountry trips are a different beast because we stay in shaded, protected areas, aka: great mosquito habitat. This is why these trips only run certain times of the year and mosquito masks are strongly recommended for certain months. Mosquitoes are a very important part of Assateague's ecosystem. Call 410.656.WILD for more information.

Do I need experience kayaking?
No, we provide instruction at the beginning of the tours. We paddle on flat, protected water as much as possible. Most people have no problem. We go slowly, but some degree of coordination and physical ability is required. We will be on the water for at least two hours. Experienced or very active children may be able to paddle single kayaks. Smaller, less experienced children may do better paddling a double kayak with an adult.
How long are we actually paddling?
Our Discovery Tour is 2.5 hours which is only about 1.5-2 miles. This trip is great for people that are new to kayaking. After you realize how easy kayaking is, you will be ready for longer trips.
Do I need to know how to swim?
No, the water we paddle in is very shallow, in between 2-3 feet. Everyone must wear a life-jacket, and wading is optional.
Will we get wet?
You can expect some dripping from your paddle. You should expect for your feet to get wet. You have the option of getting in or out of your kayak when we stop.
What should I bring?
• Appropriate footwear (sandal that straps around ankle, old tennis shoes etc)
• Water Bottle
• Sun Glasses
• Hat or Visor
