Plymouth Harbor Professional Review and Guide

"Plymouth is an attractive and interesting harbor to paddle, offering unique historical sights as well as scenic waters teeming with bird life in season. History buffs are treated to excellent seaside views of Plymouth Rock and the Mayflower II. Naturalists are thrilled by Plymouth Beach, a three-mile-long barrier beach which supplies prime nesting areas for terns and piping plovers, as well as sandy picnic spots for paddlers.

Side trips from the harbor include a visit to Gurnet Point Lighthouse (the oldest wooden lighthouse in the U.S.), Clarks Island (the first landfall for the Pilgrims in Plymouth Harbor, and beautiful Saquish Beach. To enjoy Plymouth Harbor, kayakers must paddle at mid- or high tide, because sand flats significantly limit paddling at low tide. Attractions: Historic harbor including Mayflower II and Plymouth Rock, sandy barrier beach, public parks, bird-watching."
