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 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

Those who like birding will especially like this tour, but the skipper/tour guide seemed to have something of interest for everyone. Because the character of the marsh changes with the seasons, visitors may want to visit at different times during the year. It's a must-do tour to really say you've gotten a sense of the Horicon Marsh.

Took a scenic mid day tour, very affordable and comfortable ride. Tour guide was very interesting, he was quite knowledgeable about the marsh and proud of the Horicon area. He could pick out every hidden creature and bird call. If you like hiking and bird watching, visit the Horicon marsh and definitely take the boat tour.

Beautiful sunset tour on a Sat. night. This was a great value, included a beverage and cheese and fruit before the tour. Our guide was very informative and interesting. We got a great view of the marsh.

For $20 received a two hour birding tour in the Marsh piloted and narrated by a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. I recommend strongly to go on this tour if you are interested in the marsh and birding.
