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! or 978-969-0151
