Touring Atlantic salt marshes and creeks is a great way to enjoy birdwatching. These areas are havens for eagles, ospreys, kingfishers, herons, egrets, rails, plovers, sanderlings, gulls, terns, and other aquatic birds.

Recreational fishermen often find that kayaks are a great craft for saltwater fishing. Although they lack speed, distance and capacity of larger boats, fishing kayaks can navigate back water areas that other boats cannot access. Often these overlooked flats, creeks and backwater coves are home to trophy species such as striped bass, seatrout, flounder, bluefish, redfish, croakers, and other species.
