Whether in the bright morning sun, the soft colors of sunset or the quiet of a full moon, kayaking at Caledon is at its best. Guided kayak trips along the Potomac River are now part of the many wonderful things that Caledon Natural Area has to offer.
The park’s brand new kayaks (8 solo and 4 tandem) are launched from and return to Boyd’s Hole. The trips go to Caledon Marsh (high tide) or Jones Pond (low tide) depending on the tides. Kayak trips last about 2.5 hours with about an hour and 40 minutes on the water.Pleasecheck our website for complete dates and times. As of September 12th the Sunday morning kayak trip will be at 9:00 a.m. The Thursday evening trip will be at 6:00 p.m. until the end of September with the exception of September 23rd as this trip is replaced by the Full Moon Kayak Trip at 7:00 p.m.
Visitors get to observe wildlife along the rivers, creeks and marshes while quietly slicing through the water. Paddlers will be treated to the siteof Eagles, Egrets, Great Blue Heron Otter, and Osprey foraging for food. Wild Turkey, Raccoons and White Tail Deer have been spotted making their way through the old growth forest abundant with wildlife and a wide variety of bird species.
So if you are a beginner or an avid paddler, the guided kayak trip is great fun and education for everyone.
