“Great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

A few weeks ago I went on an evening tour (not sunset, just evening) of the Horicon marsh with Horicon Marsh Boat Tours. It was great. The guide, Mark, was extremely knowledgeable and identified birds by their song even. We saw a great variety, including a nesting bald eagle. As previous reviewers noted, the engine is very quiet and we were able to hear the birds and they didn't get spooked by the noise. I would recommend this tour wholeheartedly. I would also recommend either long sleeves or mosquito spray. They say there aren't any since the boat moves, but when you're standing still, I saw a few.

“Very informative and enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

My wife and i were looking for activities to share with her father and stumbled upon this gem on the rock river in horicon. The informative tour started with a video before the trip. The boat was comfortable and spacious enough to move around, and our guide was great. prices are very reasonable. I would recommend it to any nature lover.

“See the Marsh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

The nation's largest freshwater marsh is best experienced on the water. Take the guided tour on a pontoon boat with an excellent and personable guide named Marc. It's a relaxing and information trip regardless of the time of day/year. For the more adventurous, they rent canoes and explore the marsh on your owm.

“Kayak Rental”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

We spent several hours kayaking on Horicon Marsh, and it was great! We rented the Kayak at Horicon Marsh Boat Tours (Blue Heron Landing).
Gayl and Marc were awesome! The water was calm and the sky was clear, we saw several blue herons, tree swallows and a bald eagle too!
We hope to be able to get back in spring to see more birds during their migration!
If you don't want to kayak, I STRONGLY suggest the pontoon boat tour!

“Informative and pleasant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2013

Guide Marc Zuehlsdorf's knowledge of and passion for the marsh and its wildlife really made the tour one hour tour (1:00---2:00). We were fortunate to have a nice day and to see a pair of bald eagles. The video before the tour about the restoration of whooping cranes, supplemented with Marc's commentary was also interesting. A great introduction to Horicon Marsh!
