Buzzards Bay North Falmouth to Cape Cod Canal

Buzzards Bay: North Falmouth to Cape Cod Canal Professional Review and Guide

"The eastern shore of Buzzards Bay is good day-trip paddling territory. Trips here provide the chance to look out across the 9 miles of bay to Marion and New Bedford or up to the Railroad Bridge at Bourne. The shore is a good vantage point to observe ship traffic headed for Cape Cod Canal.

Buzzards Bay is a designated National Estuarine Reserve by the Environmental Protection Agency, one of twenty-five in the United States, including Great Bay in New Hampshire, Waquoit Bay on the Cape, and Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island, all kayak trips described in this book. Buzzards Bay is most famous for its chop, caused by shallow waters over a long fetch and prevailing southwest winds in summer. Typically the heating of the land to the northeast of the bay during the day reinforces the prevailing wind from the southwest to give rise to the 15-to-20-knot winds in the afternoon."
