Westport River

In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize the risks to the most vulnerable among us, AMC will immediately begin the process of temporarily closing all lodging and foodservice facilities and suspending all in-person staff and volunteer led programming through June 3.

Trip dates: Saturday, July 4, 2020 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM

An easy paddle in a beautiful setting. Launch on a small river and follow it down as it opens into a wide bay and eventually arrive at Horseneck beach. Total distance is 11.5 miles (tide assist). Car shuttle is required, which is a concern these days. We will practice safety guidelines, such as masks and hand sanitizers, limited group size, and three persons per car during the 15-minute shuttle. More guidelines to be included in trip details.
Participants must be capable of wet exits and assisted rescues, which you can learn / practice at tune-up event on June 21, 22.
Registration is required as group size is limited.

Directions:

About one hour drive from Boston
