Event description

Description

Spend the day exploring one of Maryland's hidden gems, and it right out our back door! Mallows Bay Park, located along the Potomac River, is home to the largest ship graveyard in the Western Hemisphere. The site includes historic vessels dating back to the Revolutionary War, remains of the largest ‘Ghost Fleet’ of the World War I steamships and wildlife viewing areas.

For this trip we are leaving from Quantico Municipal Park. Our adventure will begin with a paddle across the Potomac, have lunch and explore the bay. There is plenty of time to explore, rest and enjoy the outdoors before heading back on the river and heading home.

Tour guides and all equipment is provided.
