Summer Paddles

Please join us for our free-guided kayak/canoe paddles on Thursdays.  Paddles start at 9:30 AM except as noted. We will pass various local conservation lands, including some of our own Westerly Land Trust preserves.  The paddle times will be between 1 ½ to 3 hours.  Bring your own kayak/canoe, paddle, life jacket, water, snacks, etc. Be aware that our trips leave promptly so be on time! We will meet at put in points and carpool to takeout sites unless stated differently in the calendar description. This means you will have already dropped off your kayak/canoe at the put in. Only drivers will go down to the takeout spot.


  • PFD’s: Personal floations devices or Life Jackets MUST be worn by all our paddlers properly zipped and/or buckled at all times while on the water, in the manner intended by the manufacturer. Persons not willing to follow this requirement are not permitted on our trips. Inflatable PFD’s are NOT allowed.
  • Sound signal (whistle, horn, etc.) is required.
  • If weather is questionable, contact leader.
  • If you wish to caravan to put in contact Sally Hanson at 401.348.9109 or 401.932.5295 (cell), and email:
