Join us as we kayak the Herring River in West Harwich. The Herring River is among the most wild and scenic rivers on Cape Cod due to protection afforded it by the town of Harwich. As its name implies, it is a corridor for migrating herring. Wildlife abounds along the peaceful banks and expansive marsh.
This trip is intended for those with previous kayaking experience, yet all experience levels are welcome. Participants will be required to wear a life vest. Kayaks, paddles and life vests provided.
Instructions and Directions: Meet at the MA 28 launch. Take exit 10 from US 6 and turn onto MA 124 south. Drive to the intersection of MA 124 and MA 39. Take 39 south for 1.3 miles to MA 28, turn right onto MA 28 north, go 0.9 mile and turn left onto the town landing just before the Herring River Bridge.
