Marion Harbor and Bird Island Professional Review and Guide
""Pretty" is the operative word for Marion. From its quaint, well-heeled streets to its precious tree-lined coves, kayakers can find attractive settings wherever they wander. The highlight of the trip is a visit to Bird Island and its lighthouse, just a half-mile from the mouth of the harbor. Visit in fall when yachtsmen “ are back to work and terns have finished nesting.
Through September and October, Buzzards Bay waters stay reasonably warm, and kayakers can have the whole lovely place to themselves. Attractions: Bird Island (lighthouse and beach), protected harbor, salt marsh, bird-watching, island beaches, swimming."
