Eco Tours at Ocean Beach

Includes: Kayak or Snorkel Guide, Equipment, and Instruction

There is no better way to experience Ocean Beach than by being out on or in the water! Even if you have never picked up a paddle or put on a snorkel mask, join us and learn these cool skills on one of our Eco Tours at Ocean Beach Park in New London! Whether you are a birding enthusiast, an athletic adventurer or a marine biologist, our kayak and snorkel guides will maximize your experience. Using sit-on top ocean kayaks that are exceptionally stable and perfect for paddlers of all abilities, glide across the shallows, step out to check out some of the local critters and cruise with the tidal currents. Each trip is approximately two hours and includes step-by-step instruction and information on local sites by NESS ACA certified kayak guides and ARC Waterfront Lifeguards. ALL SNORKEL, KAYAK AND SAFETY EQUIPMENT PROVIDED.  Cost: $30/adult $20/children under 12.
