About This Event

Join us for a morning outing as we take advantage of the tides to take us to Merrymeeting Bay and then helping us return to our launch site. Plenty of opportunities to look for eagles and osprey and other wildlife. We'll try to find a good spot to stop for lunch before we return with the incoming tide. We'll talk about the importance of Merrymeeting Bay (the largest estuary north of Chesapeake Bay) and the rivers that flow into it. This will be a longer paddle based on conditions and group ability. Plan on up to 10+ miles and being on the water for about 5 hours. Best for sea kayaks and longer boats due to length of paddle and open areas subject to wind. PFDs must be worn at all times on the water. Knowledge of self or assisted rescue a plus. Must be able to reenter boat from the water. Rentals available from Seaspray Kayaking.

A joint venture with the Friends of Merrymeeting Bay.  


TO REGISTER: Please email Michelle with information about your sea kayaking experience, length of boat, gear, and a phone contact. Meeting time and full details will be sent upon registration.
