On this fall morning we will head out on the Potomac River from Aquia Landing Beach and swing back around up Aquia Creek. This area has lots of natural habitats to explore including a closer look at the bird sanctuary which the park is designated as. From there we'll continue heading up creek toward the marinas.
The total paddling distance of this trip is approximately 6 miles. Paddling up creek takes longer than the return trip, so don't worry about getting tired.
Rentals: this venue does not have equipment for rent.
Time: boats will hit the water by 1000. Anticipate exiting the water between 1200-1300.
