One or two day paddling skills clinic taught at Woods Hole by a professional instructor.

Learn how to cross an eddy line, ferry across a channel, and turn in waves. Expect numerous rescues throughout the day. The second day (optional) will touch on leadership aspects, such as trip planning, contingencies, and group management. We will then apply skills from both days in a Level 4 tour from Woods Hole across Vineyard Sound to West Chop.

Scenic tidal basin off the Piscataqua river near Portsmouth. We'll launch at the mouth of the basin and paddle with the incoming tide. After lunch and some exploring we'll return the same way.

Sea Kayak down Westport River

Saturday, May 19, 2012 12:00 AM

Paddle this beautiful, under-developed tidal river on the South Shore. We launch at Head of Westport (rentals available @ launch) and paddle 12 miles down to Horseneck beach. This tidal river is fairly shallow, so not a lot of motor boats, but will see lots of ospreys. We take-out at town and shuttle cars to avoid the slog back, then regroup at restaurant next to take-out for drinks outside overlooking the river. You must be able to paddle 12 miles in 4-5 hours, with breaks of course. The water is protected from seas, but we might encounter winds.
