Thursday Paddle: Bluff Point, Groton, CT

Thursday August 25th @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Bring your own kayak/canoe, paddle, life jacket, whistle, water, snacks, etc. No vehicle shuttle. We will explore beautiful Bluff Point State and Coastal Reserve by the water. We will paddle down Poquonnock River, along Bushy Point Beach one mile, and enjoy open views of Fishers Island Sound, and return to put in. A swim is likely, and so a suit and hat are recommended. It is often windy, but the ocean views are spectacular. 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. Heavy rain will cancel the trip. Co-Leaders: Sue & Geoff Sewall, (401)377-2826 Launch site: ___

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.
  • If you wish to have a free vessel safety check contact Sally Hanson. This can be done before or after a paddle as long as Sally is there.
