At Cape Poge Bay, your only companions in this undeveloped “almost pond” (a narrow channel is the only opening to nantucket Sound) may be seagulls and the occasional person fishing for scallops. There are plenty of terrific places to swim and sun as the tour begins at east Beach and travels beside a 2.5-mile-long barrier beach in Cape Poge Wildlife refuge. Paddling around the bay entitles you to explore the refuge where you’ll also find sand dunes, salt marsh and tidal flats. Among the birds that nest and feed here are osprey, oyster-catchers, piping plovers, and least and common terns. Arrive early at east Beach. Parking is limited.
