Pavilion Beach to Plum Island Sound Professional Review and Guide
"The Agawam Indians called it heaven. In spring and early fall, kayakers will agree. A trip up Plum Island Sound provides access to a world of shore and sea birds, shimmering salt marsh, towering dunes, narrow passages, and abundant beauty. With Plum Island as its centerpiece, the 4,662-acre Parker River National Wildlife Refuge provides rich exploring opportunities.
A haven for bird-watchers, the refuge is a major feeding ground for migrating waterfowl of Canada’s Maritime Provinces and northern New England. Peak numbers appear in the fall and early spring, when paddling is at its best in the quiet marshes. Attractions: Beautiful salt marsh, sandy beach at Sandy Point State Reservation, Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, picnicking at Sawyer’s Island, superb bird-watching."
