Paddle through a large maze of bays and creeks that naturally lend themselves to kayaking and exploration. On paper, bustling Ocean City, New Jersey doesn’t look like a top kayaking destination. A quick aerial look on Google Maps shows an organized grid of homes and businesses that cover nearly this entire 7.0-mile barrier island of sand dunes and marsh. Its busy 2.5-mile boardwalk is the centerpiece along this gently curving and highly developed section of the Atlantic coast. The island is known as a family-oriented vacation destination, and as such, draws a large summer crowd for its beaches, shopping, entertainment, and dining.
