Paddling around West Island offers challenging water, beautiful beaches, good birding, warm seas, great scenery, and easy access. Diversity is the area’s strong suit, and kayakers of all abilities can take advantage of its challenges and charms. Spend an entire afternoon exploring the protected coves of Nasketucket Bay, or play in the waves and open water off Great Island. Come and enjoy. This is a great place for a summer outing when the crowds on Cape Cod drive most paddlers away. Attractions: Islands for picnicking, sandy beaches, swimming, bird-watching, fishing, salt marsh.
