Delmarva Board Sport Adventures, the area's original and leading paddleboard adventure company, has announced an expansion of ecotourism service into the southwestern corner of Sussex County.

Beginning Memorial Day weekend, paddleboard lessons, rentals and excursions will be available at both Trap Pond State Park and at the new Broad Creek kayak ramp on North Poplar Street in Laurel.

"These new paddling locations will be much more convenient for people who live in the Salisbury, Laurel, Bethel, Seaford and Bridgeville areas," says Janis Markopoulos, owner of Delmarva Board Sport Adventures. "We are also excited to share these new venues with our existing customers who wish to participate in the Free Excursions for Life program."

Rental rates start at $20 for paddleboards and $15 for kayaks. All rentals and excursions include all required safety equipment. Guided excursions, which include a certified lesson, are $40 for a 2 hour eco-experience.

Minimum age for participation is 8, and all participants must know how to swim. Guides from Delmarva Board Sports at the new Rotary Community Kayak and Canoe Launch on Poplar Street in Laurel at 10 a.m., Thursday, May 26.
