Paddle on deep, clear kettle ponds nestled in the Cape's pine woods and explore their shorelines and shallow edges to appreciate their subtleties and natural history. Our explorations of these interesting habitats on foot and by boat will provide the opportunity to experience the unique organisms that inhabit these glacially formed ponds and learn about their geologic beginnings. Swimming is encouraged, so dive in! The water is warm this time of year. Recent paddling experience and the ability to swim are required; bring your own kayak or borrow one of ours.
