Kayakers follow ACA-certified guides on treks through the Assateague Island's barrier ecosystems, choosing from a number of tours that vary in duration, difficulty, and route. Wildlife Discovery Tours paddle two miles through a secluded wilderness of sika deer and wild horses, and child-friendly sunset and full-moon tours explore natural habitats after dark with opportunities for photographing twilight scenery and seeing red foxes and luminous jellyfish.

Assateague Island sits along the eastern coast near the spot where Maryland and Virginia begin to touch. The National Park Service safeguards the 37-mile island's varied ecosystem, in which wild horses brought there by 17th-century colonists still trot freely near the salt marsh. In 2009, a trio of college pals made it their mission to introduce nature enthusiasts to this dynamic wilderness. After Tom Simon, Neil Nimrichter, and Dale Barber left The Ohio State University with degrees in Environmental Science and Adventure Recreation, the friends were drawn to Assateague's complexity and coastal beauty as a spot to begin their careers. Today, their company, SuperFun Eco Tours, leads customers on various kayaking explorations of the island's wonders, quenching theirs and their customers’ thirst for adventure by exploring the areas of the island accessible only by boat or human catapult.
