Night Tours meet at the West Launch Boat Ramp

Come experience the lake as you’ve never seen it before: in the DARK!

Join us for a 90-minute guided night tour on the serene Marsh Creek Lake.  The tours meet at the West Launch, where everyone will be given their kayak and life jacket. Bring your own flashlight to see what creatures you can uncover after the sun goes down!

Please note that the Night Tours meet at the West Boat Launch. The address is 800 North Reeds Road, Downingtown PA 19335.

Please bring at least one flashlight per kayak so that the tour guide(s) can locate each kayak on the water if needed. You can also use your flashlight to discover the secrets of the Mark Creek Lake in the dark! Make sure to dress accordingly based on the time of year and the weather conditions. It can be chilly on the water at night!

Yes, dress to get wet! The bottom half of your body will most likely get wet while getting in and out of the kayak. Further, dress in warm layers! The lake cools off at night, do not expect it to be as hot as it was during that day. Wear water shoes or shoes that can get wet.

Yes! You need to be comfortable in the water in order to join a Night Tour. We will be wearing life jackets throughout the entire tour, but for safety reasons we ask that everyone be competent swimmers.

You need to know the basics in order to be comfortable on the water and keep up with the pace of the group. You do not need to be a pro, but you must have prior experience paddling.

Night Tours are 90 minutes (1.5 hours). This does not include the time needed beforehand and afterwards to distribute life jackets, paddles, and get the group in and out their kayaks.

Parking is located at 800 North Reed Road, Downingtown PA 19335. All Night Tours will depart and return to this location. Keep in mind this is NOT our normal rental location, so give yourself plenty of time to find the parking lot.
