Winter is such an amazing time to paddle, and with less boat traffic and more open access to the water, it's a great time to get out and explore the waterways we live near! Each week, we'll paddle a different location so that paddlers can learn about all of the awesome places we love to explore! From inland rivers and lakes (when ice permits), to tidal estuaries, dynamic coastlines, and open water paddles to islands, we'll have a beautiful winter on the water kayaking or paddleboarding on all the North Shore has to offer!
This week we're adventuring to Misery Island! Lying just a half mile off the coast of Beverly Farms, Misery Island easily captures the imagination of any paddler that dreams of adventures beyond the waves. Close enough for an easy day trip, but exposed enough to satisfy the adventure in all of us, Misery Island is a paddle you'll definitely want to try!
We'll launch from West Beach in Beverly Farms at 10AM, then paddle to the strait between Great Misery and Little Misery. After floating above the submerged remains of the wrecked steamer, The City of Rockland, we'll land on Great Misery. We'll spend a little time exploring the trails that wind through the island before hopping back in our boards and kayaks, and returning to West Beach!
