My boyfriend and I had an AMAZING time this past week kayaking with 2 young men from Southeast Expeditions. They were VERY knowledgeable and friendly and let us explore and dig our own fresh clams. They answered all of our questions and even asked us questions to keep the conversation going. I would highly recommend this company!

Excellent guided tour of the marsh and channel along the Eastern Shore National Wildlife Refuge. Although I'm sixty-one my wife and I opted for the four-hour tour. The paddling is easy through the marsh and only moderate in the channel, so don't shy away from this tour due to physical demands. It was my first time on a kayak and... More

I'm glad to hear that you opted for the half-day trip! Sometimes, two hours just isn't enough! The ESNWR trip is a great trip for beginner and intermediate paddlers, alike, and I am glad to hear that your first experience kayaking was a positive experience! We look forward to getting you on the water, again. Sincerely, Hillary T. Chesson General... More

The Native American Indians sought these waters for the oysters and clams they provided... and you can paddle into these tidal grasses and get away from everyone, and everything that binds you to your usual life. Margaret makes every possible effort to provide you with what you seek. She is outgoing, experienced, and reliable. Lots and Lots of fun too!... More

For something fun to do during our visit we rented 3 tandem kayaks for the day to take out on the creek. Great rental deal, includes delivery and life jackets. Margaret was awesome!

These guys are great. We are locals and we use them all the time when we have visitors and need more than our three kayaks. They deliver them to the desired location, drop them off, and then go back and pick them up later for a very reasonable fee. They also provide the best guided kayak tours on the Eastern... More

Southeast Expeditions has our vote for summer fun! We were complete newbies to the stand-up paddleboards, but we had so much fun. Dave gave us (a 40 something mom and two 10 year old kids) a short lesson and stayed with us until we felt comfortable. He was a great instructor and really knew what he was talking about. They...
