We went during a spring shower but the boat had a roof to prevent us from getting wet. The tour guide was so knowledgeable that he could identify birds based on their song! We saw at least 35-40 types of birds including all the Herons...More

Enjoyed an informative boat ride thru parts of the Horicon Marsh. The movie was great and the captain was very interesting and informative. Will definitely come back in spring when there is more birding activity.

The owner/boat driver knows more about the marsh than you could ever want to know. It's a nice little boat ride that gives you a different perspective than walking on the trails. Our trip was sold out even on a weekday.

Decided to come up and rent kayaks on a warm Sept day. Wonderful people who ran the shop. Reasonable price. We ended up being the only people on the marsh. Just let the wind take us around most of the time.

The 12:30 sight seeing tour isn't really for "birders" because you won't see many birds in the middle of the day - this is really more of a tour for people who want to get out on the water without getting into a canoe or...More

We all enjoyed the boat tour immensely. The tour guide and owner took personal pride in his father's legacy of providing information to the general public about the history and current status of the Horicon Marsh. Wish I had know about it when my adult...More

This was the first time that I visited the marsh even though I have lived within two hours of it all of my life. It is huge! We enjoyed the boat tour from the Blue Heron Dock on a warm, sunny Sunday afternoon. It was...More
