The Great Salt Marsh spans 25,000 acres, and roughly 20% of it is federally protected. The Parker River National Wildlife Refuge is one of North America’s top five birding spots during certain times of the year, serving roughly 350 different species of migratory birds. Several million birds use the refuge, and we run trips when the tide allows. Pristine beauty, wide open space, gorgeous views, and the chance to float up and down the peaceful, winding creeks of the world’s second most productive ecosystem await you. Learn how Plum Island and the Great Marsh were formed and how important they are.
