Imagine yourself on the mighty Mohawk River …
The river ripples as you paddle your kayak, smoothly, quietly; immersing
yourself with nature. Fish jumping, mallard ducks swim and fly away as your
kayak approaches. The great blue herons watch you from the shore or gracefully
fly over your head. A bald eagle may soar above you as you paddle.
Nature will commune with you when you join Blueway Trail Tours* on the Mohawk
Paddle upriver as we head towards a birding area next to Aqueduct Island.
Birding area contains a large population of great blue herons and mallard
Paddle downriver past the aqueduct and the monolithic cliffs of the Mohawk
River Gorge. We will stop at a birding area past the cliffs with a large
population of mallard ducks and other water birds.
