This guide contains information on paddling Oyster Cove & Indian River Pond. Oyster Cove: Here you will see a sheltered bay marked by the red signs that signify the area is licensed to individual oyster fishermen. Pull your canoe or kayak over the soft banks of seaweed and turn right (northeast) up into the cove.Watch the tides, and paddle on the high or incoming tide. The shallow depth of the bay reveals a sandy bottom. The surrounding farms gently roll to the water’s edge, and the water is clean and clear. The paddling is easy and protected from the wind. Indian River Pond: The southeastern shore of Malpeque offers some quiet and interesting paddling. Indian Pond is a safe haven for the relaxed paddler. Indeed, this spot is not only for humans. The Indian River Wildlife Refuge includes a nature trail on the north shore of the pond.The pond is home to many ducks and other birds, but by far the star of the area is the red-winged blackbird.Their “caw” is readily identifiable.
