Lagoon by Pontoon

  DCNR staff and Volunteers offer a free interpretive pontoon boat ride throughout Misery Bay and the lagoons. Experience the plants and animals that live in this wetland habitat, learn the local history, and discover the natural resources and how they are managed.

 Rides are offered Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 9 am to 10 am, 10:30 am to 11:30 am, and 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm.

The rides are on a first come first serve basis.

Sign up begins 15 minutes prior to the start time at the pontoon station and all participants must be present at sign in.

Children 13 and younger must wear a PFD throughout the ride. You can bring your own coast guard approved PFD or use one provided.
