Nauset Marsh provides hours of paddling through hundreds and of salt marsh acres. Shorebirds and other birds occur in profusion. Not many people paddle here, and it can be a bit tricky. Low tide can leave you stranded, and wind often howls across the marsh unimpeded.

one of the best paddling trails on the Cape. Excellent birding and you can take a lunch break on Nauset Beach. Make sure you go at high tide.
