My 10 year old nephew and I did this on the spur of the moment and were not disappointed. We learned a lot and saw a wide variety of water fowl. The highlight was seeing the bald eagle family that were nesting there. The guide told us a lot about the marsh, its formation, and the wide variety of wildlife... More

The driver had a heck of a time getting the motor going at start of trip. And it conked out midway on the tour. No danger-- the marsh is 2 feet deep. But the clunky motor provided the only excitement. Very little to see on the marsh (more birds in my backyard) and the driver/trip narrator repeats his views mercilessly,... More

We drove to the marsh for a day trip on a warm and sunny day. Life-long Wisconsin residents but this was our first time here. It is an impressive natural area. I'm happy that our federal and state government, with local push, had the foresight to protect and then manage this for us. The pontoon boat tour takes about an... More

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

My wife and i were looking for activities to share with her father and stumbled upon this gem on the rock river in horicon. The informative tour started with a video before the trip. The boat was comfortable and spacious enough to move around, and our guide was great. prices are very reasonable. I would recommend it to any nature... More
