Picnic on an offshore island, paddle through historic Marblehead Harbor, and tour via seaside the mansions and yacht clubs of Marblehead Neck. This trip is best enjoyed during the off-season when boat traffic dips from its frenetic summer peak. Absent nerve-wracking congestion, this is an excellent novice trip. Launching and landing at protected Riverhead or Grace Oliver Beach is usually a breeze, and if ocean swells are threatening, novices can play in Marblehead Harbor or Dolliber’s Cove, where the water is often shielded from wind and waves. Attractions: Sandy beach; island for picnicking; protected launching and landing sites; historic Old Town Marblehead.
