Visit Hadley's Harbor and Elizabeth islands from Woods Hole. The ~12 mile trip will cross Woods Hole channel at slack tide to Lackey's bay, then meander through Hadley's Harbor in time for lunch on one of the Elizabeth islands. In the afternoon, we'll paddle downcurrent through Woods Hole passage back to the launch.
This trip will encounter strong tidal currents and possibly 15-20 knot tailwinds in the afternoon. We will cross Woods Hole passage twice. Paddlers should be experienced with assisted rescues and paddling in level 2 conditions.
