Tandem kayaks are recommended for beginners. Tandem kayaks offer more stability and are a better choice (over a single kayak) on a windy day.
As with all tours, please arrive at least 1/2 hour before the scheduled departure time, i.e., enough time to sign in, get suited, and fitted for your boat.
These trips are timed specifically to work with the tides, so please be punctual .... we cannot wait for latecomers !


Where are the horseshoe crabs?

Below is a chart showing the area where we will be searching for horseshoe crabs. Usually the crabs can be found in abundance (in the Plum Island Sound) where the Parker River enters the Sound.
