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 to see more birds during their migration!
If you don't want to kayak, I STRONGLY suggest the pontoon boat tour!

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 Marsh!

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.
