Launch from Swan Pond, DennisPort

Pictured, is the very easy launch into Swan Pond from a Dennis town landing on Clipper Lane, off Upper County Road...sandy and shallow, with the ability to back your car right up to the launch area.

We'll paddle through Swan Pond and south to the end of Swan River and take a break just before reaching the ocean.  

This paddle on Swan River gets a good deal of rental kayak traffic in season, so we try to do this on a week day.  Swan River has the advantage of an exceptionally easy launch,  parking with no sticker limitations and there is always enough water, regardless of the tide. The launch site is also really close to Clancy's, an excellent restaurant with outdoor dining with a view of the river you just paddled.

All paddles are for experienced and energetic paddlers. This is not a place to "get experience on the water" need that experience before paddling with this group.

DIRECTIONS: From the east, using Rt 6, take exit 10 and drive south on Rt 124 for about 2.5 miles to Rt.28.  Take right / go west on Rt 28 about 1.6 miles and take the right fork onto Upper County Rd.  Prior to taking the right fork onto Upper County, see a Friendly's on the left and cross Division St.) Go 0.4 mile on Upper County and turn right on Clipper Lane East.  Continue on Clipper Lane West for 0.3 mile to the sand parking lot on the left.

From the east, not using Rt.6, take Rt 39 to the intersection of Rt 124 and go less than 1.5 mile to Rt 28 and follow above directions.

From the west, using Rt.6. Take Exit 9 and go south on Rt. 134 to the first stop light (get in left lane). Go left on Upper County Rd and drive for 1.5 miles. Take left on Clipper Lane East, which joins Clipper Lane West. It's about 0.3 mile on Clipper Lane to the sand parking lot on the left.

See you there...hoping for warm, dry weather. As always, if weather forces cancellation, you will be emailed the day before.  No guests on paddles.

    Excellent day (except maybe for having to walk the kayak through the really shallow part).
