Jamaica Bay Professional Review and Guide
"As you leave the Sebago Canoe Club dock on the Paerdegat Basin, you may have trouble imagining that a wildlife refuge sits only a short paddle away. The neighborhood leading up to the club is decidedly urban: the basin is lined with marinas, and there’s quite a bit of boat traffic coming and going on its waters. Head just 0.5 mile to the southeast, though, and passing under the Belt Parkway Bridge will seem like passing through a gateway to another world. Once beyond its span, you will have a great view of Jamaica Bay and will learn just how vast and expansive the bay really is. You may even see some of the dozens of bird species that make the area a worldrenowned birding spot. In short, you’ll be very happy you came here."
