This 3-hour cruise will saunter its way south to the untouched hinterlands beyond the Verrazano Bridge to Assateague. After passing nesting Ospreys and the bird-laden sand flats behind the National Seashore, we’ll arrive at Mark 12 — a restored island loaded with nesting Brown Pelicans and other wading birds, including Tricolored Herons.
As the sun’s descent to the horizon delivers a pink evening hue, we’ll lounge our way back north to the Talbot Street dock. In addition to pelicans, usual suspects on this jaunt include Black Skimmer, Black-Crowned Night-Herons, Royal Tern, Piping Plover, and American Oystercatcher. And don’t forget the Assateague horses!
You won’t have to worry about August parking either. Our chartered boat, The Assateague Explorer, provides parking at 205 Talbot Street (right behind the Bank of Willards) where attendants will be on hand to ensure the lot doesn’t fill. You will also have permission to bring a small personal cooler with an adult beverage along for the ride.
Please bring a smile and $5- $10 tip for the First Mate. Please arrive by 5:00 p.m. to park and walk to the boat.
Primary Bayside Members/Tidewater Landing Residents/Bear Trap Members are $35.00. Children 12 and under are $25.00.
