Please join us for our free, guided kayak/canoe paddles on Thursdays. We will pass various local conservation lands, including some of our own Westerly Land Trust preserves. We’ll stop for a swim on some of the trips! These paddles are between 1 ½ to 3 hours long. Bring your own kayak/canoe, paddle, life jacket, whistle, water, snacks, etc. Please arrive early: our trips leave promptly.
Come explore beautiful Bluff Point State and Coastal Reserve by water. We will paddle down Poquonnock River, along Bushy Point Beach one mile, and enjoy open views of Fishers Island Sound. It’s a wonderful place to swim, so wear your swimsuit. We will launch at 10:00 AM, no shuttle. Heavy rain will cancel the trip.
