Now Offering Eco-Tours!

We are so excited to share our latest adventure with you. Starting this 2021 season, we are now offering on-the-water Eco-Tours by kayak or SUP! Our nature guides share years of knowledge and in-depth experience, both academically and firsthand, enhanced by a deep familiarity with the Chesapeake. Meet them below! In addition to our guide team’s wildlife knowledge, the Annapolis Maritime Museum will be providing additional information about the history of the bay and its watershed. On our Back Creek Eco-Tours, you will learn about everything from plants to fish to birds and everything in between.

Ready to have fun, get moving, and grow your knowledge? Book your Eco-Tour experience here, or visit our Special Events & Tours page.
