Misery Island Paddle and Hike

 

The cold weather has moved in, but that doesn't mean the paddling has to stop! In fact, this is a great time to get out and explore some of our favorite islands without the worry of heavy boat traffic and wake. Misery Island lies just a half mile off of Beverly Farms at its closest point. We'll launch from West Beach in Beverly Farms and paddle a little over a mile to the beach on Great Misery. From there we'll hike around the island, exploring the remains of an old casino and looking for remnants of the golf course that use to draw socialites from Boston in the early 1900's. After sharing passing around some hot beverages, we'll paddle back to our take out after one of the most memorable on the water experiences! 

Wetsuits or drysuits are required, but we have them available for rent if you don't have your own! We'll meet at the shop at 8:15am and then carpool to West Beach in Beverly Farms.  If you already have your own gear, you can meet us right at the beach around 9am! 

We want to be straightforward with you- At this point the weather looks absolutely terrible for next Saturday. But we're optimistic :). If you'd like to sign up for the trip, shoot us an email or give us a call...we'll make the final call by Friday evening. This one is worth taking a chance on, so go ahead and reach out now!

Misery Island Fall Paddle

Misery Island Fall Paddle

Less than a mile offshore, Misery Island offers a rugged and natural landscape with a rich history that can easily be reached by paddleboard or kayak. During this three hour paddle event, we'll launch from West Beach in Beverly Farms and journey to the strait between Great and Little Misery, where the remains of the Steamship City of Rockland lie just beneath the shallow waters. After landing on Misery, we'll walk the nature trails on the island, past the remains of a casino, cottages, water tower, and pumping station. After taking our time exploring the island, we'll paddle back to West Beach.

Open to all skill levels! 

Sounds like an adventure, sign me up!

Paddle and Picnic- Fall Edition!
Oct

4:00 PM16:00

Paddle and Picnic- Fall Edition!

Fall on the Ipswich River. Cool river valley breezes break up the warm sunshine and rustles a single yellow leaf from its branch. As it falls gently toward the water, its reflection floats up to meet it, and we drift on our boards, thinking, it can't get much better than this. 

Until it does :).  

We're teaming up with Chicken or the Eggplant to bring Paddle and Picnic to the Ipswich! We'll paddle beneath the burnt red and gold trees, hopefully spot some deer and beaver, then pull off the river to have a picnic with some delicious, healthy food (and some less healthy, but equally delicious desserts). We'll rest for a bit, enjoying some good company and light conversation, before paddling back. 

Rachel's meals are gluten-free, packed with protein, free from added sugars, and all natural, so you'll have clean energy for the paddle back! 

Sounds Amazing! Sign Me Up!

Island Paddle for Intermediate Paddlers

Island Paddle for Intermediate Paddlers

Salem Sound has so many little, rocky islands that dot its interior. These islands and shoals are what made historic maritime shipping so risky, but make paddling today so great! Between the closest island to Beverly, Great Haste, and the furthest, Halfway Rock, there lie at least a half dozen more islands. 

During this three hour paddle, we'll stop first on Great Haste, as it's Aaron's favorite and a great place to scout the rest of the islands. From there, depending on conditions,  we'll head South East past Coney Island and Grey's Rock toward Marblehead, or North East toward Beverly Farms, skirting Eagle Island and within sight of the Gooseberries before following the coastline back in. 

Since this is an extended trip across open water, paddlers must have experience paddling in bumpy conditions at a consistent pace. As a benchmark, we suggest paddlers be able to paddle with an average pace of 3mph for an extended period of time. We will be paddling a minimum of 4 miles and if conditions are favorable may paddle as many as 8.

$55/person including equipment
$35/person with your own equipment

Show me the Islands!

Wednesday Night Paddle With Ashley and Aaron

Wednesday Night Paddles With Ashley and Aaron!

**This Wednesday we'll be returning to Obear Park to paddle the tidal waters of the Danvers River. With warm temps, light winds, and a high tide, we're predicting a pretty incredible paddle. Come join us!  **

Also known as "Wat-er You Doing This Wednesday," "Wicked Chill Wednesdays," or simply "Wednesday Nights," depending on who you ask :). We just started doing these this paddles, and they have quickly become one of our favorites. 

Born out of a desire to carve out a little time each week to go paddle in a fun, relaxed setting, we decided what better way to relax than to paddle with a group of fun people?! We try to mix up the route, taking advantage of wind, tide, or special events to create a fun paddle that anyone can join! 

And the best part? If you have your own board, it's free! Just come along, the more the merrier!

Sea Kayak Rescue Skills Clinic

Sea Kayak Rescue Skills Clinic

Sea Kayak Rescue Clinic

Sea kayaking is a fun and exciting sport, and a great way to explore your local coastline, harbor, or bay. However, there are important skills that need to be developed in order to manage risk and allow for a safe and fun experience. 

Though modern kayak designs offer a blend of stability and speed, there is still the risk that a kayak might flip over, even on relatively calm days. In the event of a capsize, it's important to know how to exit the kayak, empty it of water, and re-enter the kayak quickly and efficiently. If you plan on paddling away from the coast, where swimming to shore is not an option, these skills are crucial to returning safely. 

During the kayak rescue skills clinic, we will cover: 

  • wet-exits
  • two-person T-rescues
  • two-person eskimo rescues
  • self-rescues (assisted)
  • self-rescues (unassisted)

Solar Eclipse Paddle

Join us on the water for this "rare in a lifetime" opportunity! On August 21st, the United States will witness a Total Solar Eclipse. While Massachusetts doesn't lie in the "path of totality", we'll still witness about 70% of the sun being covered by the disc of the moon! 

The event will reach its maximum at 2:46pm, so we'll get on the water around 1:30pm and paddle to a place that gives us a great view of the eclipse! Each paddler will be given a pair of ISO Certified Solar Eclipse Viewing Glasses, and once in position we'll anchor down our boards (because we don't want to be floating blind out there) and turn our attention toward this incredible event!

StrongBoard Class and Sunset Paddle

We think the phrase "Work hard, play hard" makes a lot of sense. Which is we've teamed up with Rachael Novello, owner of The Simply Fit Studio in Danvers, to bring you this special event. 

Rachael will lead us through a 30 minute workout overlooking beautiful Beverly Harbor, incorporating StrongBoards to closely mimic the sensation of being on a paddleboard. After a little grunting, a lot of sweating, and even more laughing (helps work the abs :) ), we take to the water for a relaxing cool down sunset paddle. 

Join us for the perfect combination of workout and water!
