West Branch of the Westport River Westport Professional Review and Guide

"The West Branch of the Westport River provides hours of tranquil paddling as well as the opportunity for some challenging open-water kayaking outside Westport Harbor. For paddlers seeking warm, protected waters, fabulous osprey-viewing, island hopping, and sandy beaches, the river is an excellent choice.

Visit in fall when the water is still several degrees warmer than Massachusetts Bay, the summer boaters and beach-goers have departed, and the foliage glows warmly on the river’s densely wooded banks. Attractions: Excellent bird-watching (especially osprey), picnicking on sandy beach or shady island, swimming."

The scenery was stunning. We saw numerous nesting ospreys. The tide was going out so it did get very shallow and we walked our kayaks for a bit! We only experienced a little chop crossing and stopping at the beach at the end was very enjoyable. All in all a great trip!
