Explore the winding tidal rivers, quiet bays, and scenic marshes of Cape Cod with an experienced paddler during our kayak trips.

Begin in Meetinghouse Pond and paddle through the salt marshes of The River to Upper Pleasant Bay. Osprey, belted kingfishers, herons, egrets, and diamondback terrapins are just some of the species we may observe on this scenic paddle. Currents and winds are a factor to consider in this system and sustained periods of paddling may be required of participants. Recent, previous paddling experience is required

Instructions and Directions:

Pre-registration is required. Previous (recent) paddling experience and good swimming ability are required. The kayak trip leader reserves the right to deny further participation to paddlers who do not demonstrate adequate paddling ability. Directions to the meeting place will be given upon registration.

This trip meets and leaves from the landing on Meetinghouse Pond (directions attached).

Please arrive 10 minutes in advance of the start of the program. Note that the ending time for kayak trips is approximate. We make every effort to finish the trip by the ending time listed but because we are dealing with wind, tide and differing degrees of experience on the part of the participants, there is always the possibility that the trip will run longer than anticipated. For this reason, we suggest that you not count on the trip ending at the time listed and plan accordingly.

Participants may choose among available single kayaks or bring their own kayak. All equipment is provided; all participants must wear life jackets. We recommend that you bring sunscreen, windbreaker, hat, and drinking water. There are no facilities, such as restrooms or water fountains, at the meeting places.
