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"...you need that experience before paddling with this group.
