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.

Bring your own kayak/canoe, paddle, life jacket, whistle, water, snacks, etc.  Please arrive early: our trips leave promptly.

 

July 20             10:00 AM Bluff Point, Groton, CT

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.

Directions to put in: From Rte 95 South, take Exit 88. Turn left on Rte 117 and right on Rte 1 at the second light. Then, at the next light, turn left on Depot Road. Follow this street past Industrial Road, and under the railroad tracks. A dirt road leads ahead to the large parking lot and closed gate. Turn right and park near the water.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

  • PFD’s: Personal flotation 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.
  • Boat ramps can normally be used to launch canoes and kayaks but keep the boat ramp clear for boat trailers.
