Experienced kayaker and took a friend here for first time kayak experience. Just the right length, about 2 hour total to paddle down to the bridge and float back in with high tide. Saw lots of birds. Peaceful morning. Get there early for kayaks. Reasonable...More

My husband and I rented kayaks here so we could explore the amazing salt marshes. The prices are really affordable and the staff was very polite and so nice helping us in and out of our boat.

Lovely trip. Can go at any time because you can go towards the ocean or towards inland depending on tides. Expect to work hard if going against the tide and wind. Lots of shore and wading birds.

Can't believe that I have lived in Scarborough nearly all my life and just took my first kayak trip on the Marsh. It was so beautiful and relaxing and the staff were gracious. Would definitely do this again.

Stop in and discover oodles of things about the tides and varied wildlife that depend on them. Rent a canoe and paddle through the marsh. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bug spray and carry along some water and maybe a snack. Its a delight.

This was a wonderful paddle, We rented a canoe but brought our own canoe seats. We paddled all the out to the beach. Just wonderful but make sure you know what the tides are if you are not an experienced paddler. They also rent kayaks....More
