Discover the abundant wildlife and plants at the wetlands of Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary.

See the beautiful colors of plants blooming in the wetlands and along the river’s edge. Children must be at least 7 years old, and under 13 must be accompanied by two paddling adults. The child will sit in the middle of the canoe with adults paddling. Trips are 4 hours long and include: general orientation, basic paddling lesson, up to 0.5 mile walk to canoes/kayaks, launching canoes, and paddling. Paddlers can expect to actively paddle for 2 to 2.5 hours. The Patuxent River is a relatively slow-moving river, but paddlers must be able to propel the canoe or kayak through the water. Bring plenty of water, lunch, sunscreen, sun hat, sunglasses, and wear closed toe shoes that can get wet & muddy. $20 per person.
