Mackerel Cove Professional Review and Guide
"A coastal paddle along southern Conanicut Island into a sheltered cove. Jamestown, which occupies all of Conanicut Island in Narragansett Bay, has beautiful beaches, cute shops and restaurants in its small downtown area, a bustling harbor, and more manageable crowds than nearby Newport.This is a popular spot for divers, because the small coves just off the park offer deep and temperate waters and the chance to see many species of fish. From the boat launch, paddle west along the coastline and explore the quiet coves. The surf can get heavy here, and on rough days this trip is only appropriate for experienced paddlers."
