Maryland Kayak & Winery

15 Explorer Chicks
1/2 Day


Join Explorer Chick for a Private Women-Only Kayak and Winery Tour in Maryland!

We will be beginning our Adventure behind Bird Sanctuary Island. Search the skies for the 1,000’s of waterfowl birds regularly seen in the area such as Blue Herons, Wild Ducks, soaring Red-tail Hawks, American Bald Eagles 🦅 and other birds of prey. You’ll watch birds fly by in a silence that will be cut by the sounds of falling water as you approach three Class II+ rapids and waves.

We will have about 5.5 miles of guided kayaking fun along the Potomac River. After a gradual drop of Knoxville falls, the Potomac settles into an easy flow and your attention turns again to the woodlands in search of birds, wildlife, and the fish that live below. You will be sure to work up an appetite, so bring a sack lunch or snacks to keep you fueled.

We will finish up kayaking right where we started. Where there are showers available to freshen up before we will head to Big Cork. We will be shuttled to and from the winery. At the winery, we will enjoy a wine tasting 🍷 and cheese tray. Nestled on 100 rolling acres, surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, you’ll feel like you’ve walked into Napa Valley. Inside the elegant 10,000 square foot tasting room with cloud-like ceilings and sleek interior design, you will enjoy all this winery has to offer in BIG style. Not ready for your day to end?! Grab yourself a glass of your new favorite Rose’ and enjoy the simple elegance all around you inside or take it outside onto the wraparound patios. You’re more than welcome to grab a book 📔 and throw down your picnic blanket and enjoy the sunshine and grass on the lawn.

*Tipping your Guide is optional and not included in the price of your adventure. We recommend 10-20%.
