Det skal I lave

Explore the largest concentration of shipwrecks in the Western Hemisphere, known as the Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay. Outfitted in kayaks, we’ll paddle alongside grandiose ships rising out of the shallow backwater of the Potomac River and learn how these ships got here. After a quick kayak tutorial, we’ll hit the water for about 2 hours as we paddle around this historic site and experience several nature refuge spots.

Hi. I’m Kimberly, a member of the Atlas Obscura community. I’m the owner of Atlantic Kayak Company (AKC)— an adventure kayaking business located in Charles County, Maryland. I’ve been kayaking for almost a decade. I am an American Canoe Association certified instructor. In June 2018, I became the owner of AKC, which allowed me to pursue my passion full time. My company has partnered with the Smithsonian Associates, Baltimore National Aquarium, NOAA, Atlas Obscura, and Potomac Riverkeepers. We were also featured on Amazon Prime’s Air, Water or Land. I value making first-timers and veterans alike feel comfortable in a kayak. I'm always working to continue AKC's goal of getting people out in nature, teaching them about their surroundings, and making sure they have fun.

Her skal du være

Accessible via kayak, there are about 200 ships forever in their watery grave in Mallows Bay. While the earliest are from the 18th century, most were scrapped after a WWI shipbuilding surge. In years since, nature has swallowed the hulking vessels, turning them into habitats for species living in the bay. The area is home to wildlife like beavers, osprey, & bald eagles. In 2019, NOAA officially named Mallows Bay a national marine sanctuary.
