Some Crazy Critters!

The last two months have been good to us here at SuperFun. We have welcomed a record amount of guests to Assateague Island, made tons of new friends, and have seen lots of rare and interesting critters. Our tours are not just kayak tours. They are a complete full service, hands on, interpretive experience that brings our guests closer to nature. During recent tours we have been coming in contact with some new creatures like the Striped Burrfish which is closely related to the Northern Puffer but has burr like spines all over it's body. Also the elusive Pipe Fish which calls the Eel Grass beds of the Sinepuxent Bay home. They are cousins of the Sea Horse, inhabit the same home range and feed on small fish and crustaceans.
Our seine nets have also been catching several fish that we usually don't see. We've caught King Fish, Croaker, White Croaker, Weak Fish, and Spot. All of which use the Sinepuxent Bay as a safe place to grow up. As they grow they will make their way into the deeper portions of the bay and into the Atlantic Ocean. These fish play an important role not only in the coastal bays of the Eastern Shore but in the coastal feeding grounds of the Atlantic Ocean.
Of course we have been seeing many of the famous Assateague Wild Horses. They have been very active in the back bays and guts that we paddle. You can see some of what we see and do during our tours on our Facebook page. We constantly post new photos of the animals we see and the experiences we have. It is a glimpse into the amazing world of SuperFun Eco Tours. If you want to see more then a glimpse give us a call at 410-656-9453 to schedule a tour.

Best June Ever!!!

We need to thank everyone who came out for a tour this June! It was one of our busiest months ever and it is you the SuperFun guest that makes our tours SUPERFUN. Assateauge Island is home to many amazing creatures and an eco system that is one of the most productive in the world. We think it is important to preserve and interact with our wild areas all over America. By coming out for a SuperFun Eco Tour you are helping to promote a better understanding of local eco systems and stewardship. We strive to give our guests  a one of kind interpretive experience that helps connect them to the awesome eco system that is Assateague Island National Seashore.
This past month we have encountered lots of wildlife like, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Mummichogs, Killifish, Atlantic Silversides, Bay Anchovies, Wild Horses, and the Maryland Blue Crab. We have also seen a River Otter on two separate occasions. The River Otter is a very elusive creature that is on the top of the food chain. They are social hunters that specialize in eating everything that lives on and around Assateague Island. It was luck that two different tours got to see this interesting creature. We only hope to see more as we continue to do tours on Assateague.
Here at SuperFun it is our goal to provide every guest with a interactive experience that builds respect, understanding, and interest in the wild areas around us. We do that by engaging participants through hands on activities that highlight everything the island has to offer. If you are interested in joining us on a tour please give us a call at 410-656-9453.

Not Just an Eco Tourism Company

Here at SuperFun Eco Tours we believe eco tourism extends far beyond simply leading tours. Our eco friendly lifestyle permeates through every aspect of our business and personal lives. We recently volunteered during the Take Pride in Berlin cleanup event and have participated in cleanups on Ocean City and Assateague Island. We also have an extensive recycling program that keeps the local recycling crew in Berlin very busy every Friday afternoon. We strive to turn our backyard into an interactive working eco system that provides a habitat for us and local wildlife. Our backyard is home to Cardinals, Robins, Blue Jays, Mocking Birds, Sparrows, Moles, Squirrels, Bats, Wrens, and three dogs of various sizes that are constantly wreaking havoc. For the last two years we have cultivated a garden that provides us and all the animals that live in our backyard a plethora of food. Recently we register the backyard as a  certified wildlife habitat through the National Wildlife Federation!!
We love the outdoors. That is why we have taken our love for the local environment and incorporated it into what we do everyday. Our tours are based on the idea that we can enjoy recreation, education, conservation, adventure, exploration, and discovery in our public and private natural areas. It is important that we learn to live and thrive with the natural environments around us. Assateague Island is the perfect place to see this philosophy at work in the real world. Home to tons of wildlife Assateague also provides visitors with kayaking, boating, swimming, hiking, biking, fishing, crabbing, camping, clamming, photography, hunting, and guided programs like ours.
