We took the standard one-hour tour after we had already spent a day on our own driving around the marsh. We learned so much on this boat trip, we should have begun with this tour to set the stage. Our guide has been doing this...More

Enjoyed an informative boat ride thru parts of the Horicon Marsh. The movie was great and the captain was very interesting and informative. Will definitely come back in spring when there is more birding activity.

The owner/boat driver knows more about the marsh than you could ever want to know. It's a nice little boat ride that gives you a different perspective than walking on the trails. Our trip was sold out even on a weekday.

Decided to come up and rent kayaks on a warm Sept day. Wonderful people who ran the shop. Reasonable price. We ended up being the only people on the marsh. Just let the wind take us around most of the time.

The 12:30 sight seeing tour isn't really for "birders" because you won't see many birds in the middle of the day - this is really more of a tour for people who want to get out on the water without getting into a canoe or...More
