Intro to Kayaking Woods Hole

Date: Sunday, July 12 - Sunday, July 12

Join us for a level 2 paddle at Woods Hole. This ~12 mile paddle will cross main channel near slack tide to Hadley's harbor, where we will play in mild currents and eddies near a bridge. After lunch, we return across the channel to the launch. The currents in Woods Hole channel will require maintaining a ferry angle to cross. In addition, there could be strong (15 knot) tailwinds in the afternoon, making for good surfing. This trip is ideal for those seeking to improve their paddling skills in moderate currents. Helmets are required when playing around rocks, eddies, and current. We will follow Covid-19 protocols with masks worn at the launch and distance while paddling.
