We will catch the new moon high tide and paddle over to Goose Creek in search of the ancient and interesting Horseshoe Crab, which should be visible laying eggs during the late morning high tide. We’ll discuss current conservation concerns related to Horseshoe Crabs, their important ecological role in the ecosystem, and some of their unique features for life in the estuary. Kayak, canoe, and SUP rentals available: $40 single kayak; $60 tandem kayaks and canoes; $50 paddleboard (SUP). Lifejackets are included.
