South River Professional Review and Guide
"The South River is a lovely place to paddle, nearly equal in beauty to the North River but more intimate in scale. At high tide, kayakers can paddle south about five miles one-way from the put-in before the river becomes too narrow to navigate easily. The wonder of the South River is the way it slowly reveals itself.
At the put-in the river is busy, its banks crowded with homes and businesses. As one paddles south, buildings fall away to reveal a beautiful marsh surprising in its expansiveness. On a warm summer day, observant kayakers can find a lovely lagoon tucked away in the marsh, perfect for swimming and picnicking. Easy, scenic, and fun, this paddle is ideal for families. Attractions: Salt marsh, bird-watching, fishing, lagoon for swimming and picnicking."
