Outstanding trip — great guides, easy logistics, beautiful area to kayak in. Coastal made everything very easy and provided an excellent experience for my 17-year-old daughter and me (and the others on the trip).

The clouds over the marsh on the sunset tour were filled with color! Maddie pointed out osprey, horseshoe crabs, egrets, pelicans, and fish. Cool mid-week get away!

Maddie was a great tour guide for our kayak trip on the Delaware state park bay. She was personable and found some neat creatures for us to hold: hermit crabs, fiddle crab, horseshoe crab. Really enjoyed finding shells on the bay beach.

Bob and Emma lead our small group of beginner and advanced kayakers through the marsh around Burtons Island. During the two hour trip we saw a variety of fish, turtles,plants, birds and of course a breath taking sunset. I highly recommend the tour.
