Walking Tours Offered by Ayers Creek Adventures

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

Ayers Creek Adventures is a local, family owned and operated business situated on the creek banks in Berlin, MD.  Ayers Creek Adventures allows those interested to experience the vast array of wildlife including bald eagles, herons, egrets, osprey, ducks, otters, and white tail deer as you paddle these peaceful waters in a canoe, kayak, or on a stand-up paddle board. The tours offered by Ayers Creek Adventures have become one of our favorite ways to experience the coastal bays watershed. For the next few months, the Ayers Creek staff will be offering guided walking tours of the area! Check out these tours:

Sunrise & Sunset Waterfowl Observation Tours:
Join an experienced wildlife guide on either an early morning or late afternoon trip to observe wood ducks, pintails, black ducks, mergansers, bufflehead and many other local waterfowl. These migratory birds are dependent upon local waterways for their annual migration south. You will walk or be boated to traditional waterside duck blinds located on active local flyways. Observing waterfowl from these vantage points provide spectacular close-up views and opportunities for stunning photography. You might even see bald eagle, raccoon, white-tailed deer, fox and otter. Get a feel for what it must have been like for early settlers as they survived off what the creek had to offer.

Canada Geese Calling Tour:
Have you ever had 75 Canada Geese land within feet of where you’re standing, hear the flaps of their wings or the honking variation of each bird? Now you can on our Canada Geese Calling Tour. Take a guided trip to a field hunting blind to observe dozens and sometimes hundreds of Canada Geese flying by or landing in the field around you. This is an experience unlike any other, so remember to bring your camera on this unforgettable trip!

All trips are $50 for the first person and $35 for each subsequent person with a maximum of up to 4 observers per trip. You are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to a scheduled to be properly outfitted for your adventure.

The tours are scheduled daily from October through March as follows:
The Sunrise Tour: 6 – 8:30 am
Canada Geese Calling Tour: 8:30 – 11 am
Sunset Tour: 3 to 5:30 pm

Please wear dark clothing that is appropriate for cold temperatures and sometimes damp weather. A dark-colored brimmed hat will help you hide your beaming smile from these often leery birds. Pathways are muddy and wet, so waterproof boots are required. Other suggested items to bring include a flashlight, drinking water, camera, snacks, coffee, and warm gloves.

Ayers Creek Adventures is located only a few minutes from Ocean City and Assateague Island and makes the perfect day trip or activity during the fall!
