Paddle Chase Garden Creek, YarmouthPort

Chase Garden Creek winds it's way into a beautiful marsh in YarmouthPort.

High tide in Barnstable Harbor is 10:25 AM, so we will have plenty of water out and back. 

 The launch area is flanked on the left by a long boardwalk, where people go to see the sunset and the gorgeous views of Cape Cod Bay and a beach area on the right. There is an active osprey nest next to the boardwalk and five more osprey nests in the marsh.

No sticker is needed at any time for the very large paved parking lot. There are restrooms near the parking lot. This paddle combines a gorgeous kayak trip with an easy launch and the best parking of any launch we use on the Cape.

DIRECTIONS:  From Rt.6, the Mid-Cape Highway, take exit 8 and go NORTH on Union St. to Rt 6A.  Cross 6A, by going a tiny bit left to the left of a BP gas station to get on Old Church St.  (If you miss that and are on 6A heading west, take the next right on Playground and head will join Old Church St. )  About 0.3 mile up Old Church from 6A, bear right at the stop sign onto Center St. Go 0.5 mile on Center and at the T, take a left to stay on Center and drive until you are in the parking lot.  Go BEYOND the parking lot and see the ramp just before the boardwalk.  Unload and park your car in the lot.

Please leave enough time to travel and unload, so that you are in the water at 10:00.

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.

See you's a great paddle, so I'll post it every month.

    Martha's Vineyard was great. Even early in the season. Expect to be back in Mass in July. Hope to paddle with you then, Joyce.
