Not to much to see. The narrator was political making snide remarks about the Federal part of the marsh .Major odor from livestock farms floated over the tour boat. Expected more.

These folks are really serious about loving the land, wildlife and tourists. They tell the story well and conserve the waterways. This business has been passed down from the father and is still family run with love on each trip. Marc's knowledge of the birds and wildlife is well honed and their little shop is a neat shopping experience.

My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing and informative trip on this marsh yesterday. Our guide was so knowledgeable! We saw many eagles, cormorants, swallows & a white pelican. Every trip is different as to what birds you will see. We hope to return next Spring to see the migratory birds. The cost of the trip was well worth it!... More

You will learn more about the marsh and its birds and animals from Marc Zuehlsdorf on this tour than you would in any other way. We were fortunate to see a pair of bald eagles and their big baby on our trip. The boats are very quiet and comfortable. A very good value and fun for passengers of any age.

We greatly enjoyed a two hour day tour recently. Our primary reason for going was to get out on the marsh. With Marc at the helm guiding and narrating, it was a wonderful experience. He has vast knowledge of the area and is an incredible birder! Identifying birds, by sight, sound, and flight pattern he pointed out quadruple what we'd... More

A few weeks ago I went on an evening tour (not sunset, just evening) of the Horicon marsh with Horicon Marsh Boat Tours. It was great. The guide, Mark, was extremely knowledgeable and identified birds by their song even. We saw a great variety, including a nesting bald eagle. As previous reviewers noted, the engine is very quiet and we... More

The nation's largest freshwater marsh is best experienced on the water. Take the guided tour on a pontoon boat with an excellent and personable guide named Marc. It's a relaxing and information trip regardless of the time of day/year. For the more adventurous, they rent canoes and explore the marsh on your owm.

We spent several hours kayaking on Horicon Marsh, and it was great! We rented the Kayak at Horicon Marsh Boat Tours (Blue Heron Landing). Gayl and Marc were awesome! The water was calm and the sky was clear, we saw several blue herons, tree swallows and a bald eagle too! We hope to be able to get back in spring... More

Guide Marc Zuehlsdorf's knowledge of and passion for the marsh and its wildlife really made the tour one hour tour (1:00---2:00). We were fortunate to have a nice day and to see a pair of bald eagles. The video before the tour about the restoration of whooping cranes, supplemented with Marc's commentary was also interesting. A great introduction to Horicon... More
