Seapowet Marsh Professional Review and Guide
"A serene paddle through interconnected salt marshes and a tidal creek. This refuge area reaches inland from the shores of the Sakonnet River and combines a variety of coastal habitats, including a protected bay, cobble beach, and salt marshes. Exploring this somewhat hidden gem, alternately called Seapowet and Seapowet, is a pleasure, and a winding paddle through these largely undisturbed marshes is an outing to be savored. This is a great area for bird watching—the marshes host a variety of game birds (including a stock of ring-necked pheasants), shorebirds, and wading birds. This trip is especially lovely in the early-morning hours on a summer day."
--Christie Matheson, Discover Rhode Island (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
My wife and I paddled our kayaks through the marsh today. It was a nice easy paddle. We stopped at an hour and a half because the cloud were getting dark and rain was due. We stayed in the marsh on the left side of the bridge. Next time we will go down the right side. One tip: Use the parking area on the right side just before the bridge. You can pull up near the water and launch from the rocky beach there. This is a lot easier than using the area on the other side of the bridge. For the marsh area go left and under the bridge.
