Experience the Bays Budding with Life!

Spring is finally in the air…along with the pollen, but that’s another story. It’s the time of year we dust off our paddles, seat backs, and boards and head back to the water!

Ecobay kayak & stand up paddle is embarking on our fourteenth year offering educational based tours departing from the James Farm Ecological Preserve and we couldn’t be happier! We love this time of year and all the buzz that springtime brings.  

With warmer days brings the promise of new life and outdoor easy breezy afternoons on the bay. Our kayaks and paddle boards will be on the water by Mothers Day weekend ready to offer you a glimpse as to what and who is new on the marsh.

From spring peepers, nesting horseshoe crabs,

and osprey, the bay is budding with life.

People always ask me what the best time of year or day is to paddle and I always say simply….any. You always see something new, something exciting, have another experience, or a quite moment whether it be on the bay or simply taking a stroll along the trails.

Through the eyes of a child is another great way to experience nature at the farm! Our camps kick into gear the second week of June and run through the second week of August. You can participate on any level you wish, from one week to one day.

We provide a safe, educational, and fun experience making new friends along the way. I like to think we are breeding young horseshoe crab counters and naturalists!

In closing, welcome back terrapins, osprey, & nature lovers. We look forward to seeing you on the water.
