Pocomoke River Canoe Company

in Snow Hill Maryland

Canoeing the Pocomoke River from Snow Hill MD. The Pocomoke River Canoe Company offers an unsurpassed way to experience one of Delmarva's natural wonders.

Paddle gently in one of our Old Town canoes or kayaks through shady caverns of foliage. Novice or experienced paddlers will find the flat water Pocomoke River a delight! See the sun-dappled surface glisten as you paddle past fallen logs, clusters of pink or white blossomed water lilies, or the exposed “knees" of the bald cypress.

The Pocomoke River corridor is home to the northernmost reaches of the Bald Cypress, and provides a selection of various wildlife species that are usually found only in more southern regions.

Watch carefully to see a bald eagle that may swoop overhead, or be startled by an osprey or great blue heron as it swooshes by. Egrets are often seen wading in the river's swampy reaches.

Notice sun-worshipping turtles basking on a log. The shy turtles retreat to the river if you approach too quickly. Playful otters streak by, diving and searching for their supper. Fish for the scrappy gar – our “freshwater marlin" – or for largemouth bass, catfish, shad, yellow and white perch, pickerels and eels.

Exercise your sense of wonder at the marvelous birds that flit through the undergrowth at the river's edge where white-tailed deer often pause to drink. Accept the challenge of the wind and tide on the open reaches of the river near the 300-year-old village of Snow Hill. You'll be glad you chose to come to the Eastern Shore, to Worcester County, to our Pocomoke River.
