Pelicans & Birding on Smith Island

On June 24, 2022 Kayaking Delmarva returned to Smith Island with Delmarva Birding Weekends to view the nesting Brown Pelicans. It’s estimated 1,000 Brown Pelicans build their nests a short distance from Smith Island. On the high tide one may approach by small boat maintaining a respectable distance. […]

Millsboro Pond

Located on the edge of the town the Millsboro Pond is popular with fisherman and the small parking lot is often filled with their boats and trailers. However, this is also a nice kayaking location. We recommend you enjoy it now because in the next few years a […]

Nassawango Creek Serenity

Tizzard Island – 2020

Located between Johnson Bay and Brockatonorton Bay, Tizzard Island offers excellent paddling choices, nice sandy beaches and birds. The closest put in is at the Taylor’s Landing Boat Ramp near Girdletree, MD. We kayak more from this location than any other. The options are varied; kayak to and […]
