Muscongus Bay is the perfect getaway for two reasons: it is well protected and is not on the way to anywhere else. What this means for sea kayakers is a handsome bay that sees little use from many craft other than lobster boats. The pretty 2-acre Crow Island, distinguishable by the one tall spruce growing higher than the rest, can be reached from Broad Cove through the protected water of Hockomock Channel. It is truly a unique area to paddle, with mainland always close by, but not so close as to feel intrusive. Unfortunately, Muscongus Bay is another area that kayakers paddle in a lot, and MITA has done much to protect islands from overuse. Crow in particular is a beautiful little island, situated at the top of Hockomock Bay, so you get wide water views of the ocean but have a nice protected feel.
