Paddle peaceful, lovely waters to find ducks, green herons, terns, snowy egrets, piping plovers, and a historic home. Despite all the natural beauty of Long Island, it can be difficult to find a slice of solitude. Harbors are shared with fishing boats, yachts, and jet skis, while pristine beaches are either private or reserved for those willing to shell out big bucks to use them. This spot is a rare diamond among paddling routes, starting in the Southampton area not far from US 27. It passes through the contiguous waterways of Bullhead Bay, Sebonac Creek, Little Sebonac Creek, West Neck Creek, and Scallop Pond.
