Thanks for checking out the SuperFun Blog. We are really excited to be involved in the Ocean City Blog Network.

For this first Blog we wanted to introduce ourselves to the community and also figure out how this thing works. SuperFun Eco Tours is a full service tour operator on Assateague Island National Seashore. We have a permit from the Park Service which allows us to bring our guests onto the Island to explore the natural wonders of the barrier island ecosystem.

We use kayaks to allow guests to see some wonderful areas of the park that are not accessible by car or by foot. Kayaking is absolutely the best way to experience the beauty and diversity of Assateague Island.

Our tours do not require kayaking experience, in fact we love to take out first time paddlers and introduce them to a sport that seems like an extreme sport, but does not have to be. Many people associate kayaking with running crazy river rapids or surfing overhead waves. We are more into having fun when we paddle around the very protected Sinepuxent Bay and salt marshes of Assateague.

All of our guides are very passionate about what we do and love sharing it with other people. We catch all kinds of creatures with nets, then transfer them to clear containers so that everyone has a chance to view and learn about these normally concealed marine species.

The owners of SuperFun are friends from college who all received degrees in Adventure Recreation or Environmental Science. Tom, Neil and Dale all love nature and enjoy sharing their passion for the environment with other people who may not get out to natural areas as often as we do.

OK, enough about us. Now that the introductions are out of the way we will be coming up with some much more exciting and stimulating posts! If you have any ideas of what you would like us to talk about please, please let us know!
