Boating in Horicon WI at Blue Heron Landing

Boating in Horicon WI at Blue Heron Landing

Two-hour "Strickly Birding" tour of Horicon Marsh offered May-Sept. Learn about wetland habitat and how to identify numerous bird species by sight and sound. One-hour narrated pontoon boat tour of the inner marsh offered May-Oct. All tours depart from Hwy 33 at the bridge in downtown Horicon.


The town of Horicon is located at the south end of the marsh among the hills overlooking the Rock River. While the marsh may be Dodge County's best-known attraction, the area includes a number of lakes that provide excellent recreational opportunities.

In 1984, the tour business purchased the Canoe Outfitters property, combining the two, forming Blue Heron Landing. This gave visitors another alternative to seeing the Horicon Marsh, with the rental of a canoe. Knowing not everyone is able to canoe; in 1991 we developed our two-hour Rookery Tour. This bird watching tour included a visit to the largest Heron and Egret rookery in the state of Wisconsin. By 1996 run-off from the surrounding fields and lower water levels prevented us from reaching the rookery and as a result began offering our two-hour Birding Tour.

How about adding a sunset cruise with Horicon Marsh Boat Tours, along with your bed and breakfast stay. Snuggle under your blanket while your boat meanders down the Rock River into the Horicon Marsh and catch a romantic sunset. Enjoy a beverage and cheese gathering before your boat drifts away from the pier at Blue Heron Landing. Your guide Marc will set the mood for you as he points out melodic songbirds and other creatures of the marsh who reside in this natural wonderland.

Your Sunset Cruise package for two includes the following...

  • Beverage and cheese gathering
  • Chocolate covered strawberries in your room upon your return
  • A full gourmet breakfast the following morning.
