Experience the wildlife and plants of Scarborough Marsh as you paddle the Dunstan River. Paddling through the marsh, you will be exposed to its many inhabitants, from the snowy egret catching fish along the edge of the river to the mummichogs swimming in the water. A trained naturalist will show you the numerous marsh plants and even give you a taste of an edible one.
This tour is suitable for both novice and experienced paddlers.
We strongly recommend visitors bring their own life jackets or purchase one from us.
If you have questions, you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 207-883-5100.
