Tern Island Paddle and Exploration 1.5-2 hr (suitable for all ages)
We embark on our journey from the landing at the end of Sebonac Inlet Road. We paddle roughy 1 mile up to the northern shores of Tern Island. Once we arrive, our knowledgable guides discuss geography and ecosystems of the area and provide opportunities to get hands on with some of the local wildlife. You also have the option of collecting seashells and going for a swim.
Ram Island Circumnavigation/Bullhead Bay coastline stand up paddle60-90 minute (ages 10 and up)
We teach basic stand up paddle board techniques, and skills such as paddle strokes, crossing currents, safety, and self rescue. Low guide to paddler ratio means more one on one instruction and guidance for those new to the sport.
Scallop Pond Paddle to the "Port of Missing Men," 3-4 hr r/t (paddlers 12 and up in good physical condition)
We embark on our roughly 6 mile r/t journey from the shores of Sebonac Inlet, we head to nearby Ram Island where we paddle under the bridge to Bullhead Bay. Paddling north along the eastern shore of Ram Island, where at low tide we witness the 'Dance of the Fiddler Crabs'-a time when these crustaceans come out of their burrows in search of food. Continuing north, we cross Sebonac Inlet and touch the southern shores of Tern Island. As we glide past shore birds and mussel shoals, keep an eye open for one of our resident Osprey. They frequent the mouths of Sebonac and Little Sebonac Inlets as they hold schools of Menhaden, an abundant large baitfish that frequents the area. As we pass the northern shores of Tern Island, we have Cow Neck Preserve ahead of us and Wolf Swamp Sanctuary to our East. We are now paddling through the waters of West Neck Creek. A little over a mile ahead, through salt marsh grasses and hardwood hammocks, we follow the creek to the mouth of Scallop Pond. On the Northern side of Scallop Pond we reach the 'Port of Missing Men,' quite a sight, designed to resemble the stern of an old sailing ship. This property was owned and developed by the Standard Oil family as a place to invite friends and 'get away.'
