The Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center has much to offer the water enthusiast! With our ideal location on a peninsula, we offer visitors kayak and canoe rentals to glide around Marshy Creek, the Narrows and Prospect Bay viewing wading birds, waterfowl and acres of marsh and restored shoreline.
KAYAK RENTAL SEASON RUNS FROM MAY 1st - NOV 1st

Please check in the visitor center to sign the release waiver and grab a water trail map. We will hold your drivers’ license to make sure you made it safely back. Please remember to be back to the visitor center by 4:30pm with your paddle and life jacket to receive your drivers’ license. We’d appreciate your help in bringing your kayak back to the rack area.
Very Important: We will not rent kayaks if the weather service has issued a small craft advisory or thunderstorm warning…so it is YOUR responsibility to check the weather before you leave your house. www.weather.gov
