The River and Pochet Professional Review and Guide

"From the River Road launch, paddle downstream a short distance to where it merges with Meeting House Pond on the left. You might want to explore this small, relatively shallow basin first, to settle into your boat and get in some warm-up strokes (if you’ve launched at the pond, mission accomplished). Beyond the pond, Lucy’s Point snubs out from port and leads to a small salt marsh, home to shellfish and wading birds. (A point about the tide: It reaches high tide here about two hours later than it does on the ocean front, so note the conditions.

If you’re hoping for an easy ride down The River and are not planning on spending several hours, you’ll probably be fighting the ebb on the return trip. But if you begin when the tide has half retreated, you might be on the water long enough to pick up the returning tide on the way back. It’s nice to have it both ways.)"
